Do You Have the Risk Factors for Developing Dry Eyes?



Do You Have the Risk Factors for Developing Dry Eye Syndrome?

If you have these risk factors, chances are you can develop dry eye syndrome.  Here are some of the factors:

1. Women in menopause:


Hormone imbalance is the number one cause for dry eye syndrome. This is because cornea has hormone receptors that directly linked to eye function.  This is why women 50+ , have have significantly decreased tear production.  Similarly, it has been noted that women with primary ovarian failure develop clinically significant dry eye syndrome


2. Arthritis or Sjogrens Syndrome- autoimmune diseases that attack tear function.



3  Smoking


4. Medications -

Medications to lower high blood pressure by eliminating fluids, antidepressants, antihistamines, anticholinergics, and systemic retinoids like Accutane have been well documented that they can increase the risk of developing dry eye syndrome.

5. Environmental factors,

Live in places where there is decreased humidity, windy, drafty, air conditioning, heating, fluorescence lighting can worsen the ocular discomfort of people with dry eyes. environmental irritants, allergens, smoke can increase the symptoms of dry eyes.  People who use lots of computers,  watch television, and prolonged reading are also susceptable.


5. LASIK or PRK Eye Surgery:

After refractive surgery such as LASIK or PRK, for several months may experience significant dry eye due to the severing of the corneal nerves during surgery. Many of these go on to become permanent dry eyes.

6. Eye Infections - Blepharitis

Chronic condition of eye lid inflammation, which often accompanied by Meibomian Gland Dysfunction. Read more on this blog site.

7. Systemic Diseases: Sjogrens,  Lymphoma, Viral Infections, AIDS, Rosacea …

Dry eye-associated systemic diseases include Sjogren's syndrome, where inflammation of the lacrimal gland results in tear-production deficiency.  Lack of tears may develop in systemic disorders such as lymphoma, sarcoidosis, hemochromatosis, and amyloidosis. Dry eye in people with systemic viral infections and AIDS are also common.  Neuromuscular disorders that affect the people’s blink (e.g., Parkinson disease, Bell palsy) can lead to dry eye syndrom.

7. Cancer Treatments

Radiation, Transplantation, chemotherapy, localized trauma, including orbital surgery, radiation, and injury, may also cause dry eyes.

You can see from all the research into the risk factors of dry eye syndrome that we need to go beyond just dispensing some artificial tear. Lifestyle issues maybe causing the underlying problems with dry eyes.

    How I Relieved my Knee Joint Pain from Sjogren's.

    How I Relieved My Knee Joint Pain from Sjogren's

    This is my personal story:

    I am on TheraLife Autoimmune formula for Sjogren's dry eyes.  I thought I would let you know my progress. The dry eye continues to improve.  The biggest miracle of all with Theralife Autoimmune is that my very painful right knee continues to improve. I have two kinds of arthritis, osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid . Last year the pain was so bad that I could barely walk, my husband had to get the groceries.  After taking the Theralife Autoimmune for about 3 months for my dry eye condition, I began to notice that my knee felt better. Now I am close to walking normally.  The knee improvement started after having taken TheraLife for 3 months. I was using a cane and now I don't need it, I am just amazed I was not expecting this wonderful added benefit. Thank you so much.

    How I grew back eye lashes from Blepharitis. True Story


    How I Grew Back Eye Lashes from Blepharitis. True Story



    Blepharitis - the inflammation of eye lid gives you sticky, crusty build up on your eye lids.  Your eye lids tends to be puffy, red, and irritated.  Most likely you also have chronic dry eyes which may have caused blepharitis to begin with.  

    Below is my personal story how I recovered from Blepharitis, Dry Eyes and start to grew back my eye lashes.

    TheraLife truly gave me back my life.  


    Blepharitis Recovery   


    "I have had blepharitis that would come concurrent with pink eye for quite a few years, but it has always gone away pretty quickly on its own. This last time, however, blepharitis and dry eye did not leave, and it became quite disruptive to my life. My eye lashes started to fall out.  My eye doctor gave me eye drops, which only made my eyes feel more dry. I felt as though I had no hope for my eyes and they were just going to keep getting worse and worse. I finally decided to try Theralife, despite being fairly skeptical, and I'm So glad I did. I've now been taking it for just over two weeks, and I already feel so much better. This morning I woke up and my eyes were almost white, instead of bright red. My blurry Vision is pretty much cleared up, the stickiness gone from eye, and the stinging has almost left. I'm looking forward to them getting better and better. Thanks so much!"

    How Effective is Punctal Plugs for Dry Eye Treatment


    How Effective is Punctal Plugs for Dry Eye Treatment?

    People often ask if they should try punctal plugs for dry eyes.

    The simple answer is YES- if you are producing some tears. 

    For people who do not produce tears, punctal plugs will not be effective.

    To increase tear production - use TheraLife Eye Enhanced capsules to help restore, revive and normalize your own tear functions from inside out. 

    To learn more, go to www.theralife.com

    Research Studies of Punctal Plugs


    a research study in 2005 study by C.W. Roberts contained 30 dry eye patients divided into 3 groups. The groups were randomly assigned and being treated with the following:
     
    1. Cyclosporine twice a day
    2. Parasol punctal occlusion in the lower eye lid
    3. A combination of punctal occlusion and cyclosporine bid
     
    The results of the study showed improvements in all three groups, but the greatest improvement was found in the group receiving combination treatments of the cyclosporine and punctal occulation simultaneously. The superior improvements in the combination treatment group were in the areas of reduction in conjunctival Lissamine green staining, decrease in artificial tear use by 3.8 tears a day, and an increase in Schirmer’s scores from 2.5 to 6.5 mm.

    Another study by McCabe in 2009, published in Review of Ophthalmology, demonstrated that 43% of the patients in the study benefited from an improvement in Snellen visual acuity with punctal occlusion. Today we have a greater number of options in punctal occlusion. Not only are there newer permanent silicone plugs, intracanalicular plugs, but the increasingly popular and versatile extended duration plugs. While we have had dissolvable plugs for many years we now have ready access to 90-day plugs, as well as 180-day dissolvable plugs. These dissolvable plugs are ideal for patients undergoing cataract or refractive surgery that may benefit from 6 months of occlusion. Permanent or dissolvable punctal plugs continue to play a viable role as part of comprehensive treatment of your dry eye patients once the treatment of inflammation and lid conditions have begun.


     Conclusion.  In order for punctal plugs to work, the ideal situation is to treat dry eyes at the same time.

    We recommend TheraLife Eye Enhanced, a natural alternative to eye drops that really works.

    How I Cured My Watery Dry Eyes

    How I Cured My Watery Dry Eyes


    The funny thing about watery eyes is - more than 50% of the watery eyes are cause by dry eyes.  Reason is quite simple.  Your eyes have been dry and they were not getting relief.  Eye drops only made them drier.  Your brain started to CRY in order to provide moisture- unfortunately,  your crying tear is very poor quality washing away the natural lubricants your eyes produce.

    Here is my personal story-


    I am a chronic dry-eye from  LASIK surgery. I have watery eyes with tear tears flowing down my cheek all day long.  If the weather is windy or cold, the tear flow is increased.  I could no longer wear contact lenses with my watery eyes, I couldn't see or function normally throughout the day.

    I sought Lasik surgery because I was very near sighted (11.5 in my left eye and 11.75 in my right eye) plus  large pupil dilation and a thin cornea, I had "E-Lasik" surgery. which was much more complicated than normal Lasik and had higher risk of dry eyes.

    The LASIK surgery was very successful. I now have 20/50 vision, I can function without glasses for the most part.  However, for my watery dry eyes,  I used eye drops recommended by the eye doctors, which did not help.  I still had watery eyes, extreme glare at night and sometimes eye pain in the morning.
    I tried many drops and supplements from health food stores but nothing seemed to work. I found Theralife on the internet. I now have improved night vision, watery eyes stopped and no more eye pain  in the morning. I started at 8 capsules per day and now on maintenance for 4 capsules per day. I recently have added the Fish oil (1-2 per day) and have had even more relief.

    I  highly recommend Theralife Eye  to manage watery eyes caused by chronic dry eye. I'm so glad that I found Theralife.

    How To Treat Cornea Abrasion from Dry Eyes

    How To Treat Conrea Abrasion from Dry Eyes

    What is Cornea Abrasion?

    Corneal abrasions are scratches on the outermost part of the eye. Sometimes a painful injury is the clear cause. Other times, symptoms can build slowly over a few hours. A corneal abrasion causes so much discomfort that sufferers should seek medical care quickly. The scratch can become infected and cause serious damage in as little as 24 hours. Therefore, recognizing a corneal abrasion could save your sight.

    The cornea has 6 layers, and it is very sensitive. It helps the body regulate tear production. The cornea sends signals to the brain to direct it to tell the lacrimal glands whether more or less tears are needed every moment.

    Symptoms of Corneal Abrasions

    The primary symptom is a feeling that there is a foreign body in the eye. It may feel like large chunks of sand, disproportionate to the size of any visible debris. This may develop immediately or a few hours after the initial injury.
    The eyes may be watery. Vision can be distorted or blurred.
    When looking at a bright light, the eye may feel more painful. The eye muscles may spasm, resulting in squinting.

    Corneal Abrasions: Causes

    • Chronic Dry Eyes - constant irritation, inflammation from blinking, creating cornea damage
    • Debris entering the eye, such as road dust, sawdust, shards of metal, craft supplies, snow and ice, etc.
    • Rubbing the eye after debris enters it (instead, use a free-flowing eyewash)
    • Watching a welding arc without sufficient eye protection (ultraviolet light)
    • Spending the day around water or snow (UV light amplified by glare)
    • Rubbing the eye excessively, regardless of cause (allergies, debris, dry eye syndrome, etc.)
    • Suffering from dry eye syndrome: waking up, opening the eyes, and the lids are partially attached to the eyes, causing abrasions
    • Broken or low-quality decorative contact lens
    • A tree branch, fingernail, cosmetic applicator, or another sharp object
    • Hot ash from a fire or cigarette
    • Surgery or in-office procedures without eye protection (suture scratches)
    • Chemicals splashing into the eye
    To prevent eye injuries, wear eye protection when playing sports, in the workroom, while handling chemicals, and skiing. Wear sunglasses when outdoors, especially while on the water and in the snow.

    What To Do

    If the cause is dry eyes, call TheraLife Eye for help.  TheraLife Eye capsules can restore your own tear secretion functions and heal cornea abrasion. 
    Here is a personal story from one of TheraLife's customers who had cornea abrasion which was healed by TheraLife Eye capsules

    Chronic Dry Eye Cornea Abrasion for 20 years- Relief by TheraLife Eye

     "I have suffered from dry-eye for nearly 20 years. My eyes would be terribly dry and constantly stinging and really red and bloodshot. A former employer actually accused me of being an alcoholic and drinking during work hours. After using countless different types of eye drops and gels, nothing ever worked. I got a prescription for prescription eye drop from my family doctor and after enduring 6 months of that expensive nonsense and even worsened redness, I threw that away.
    I found TheraLife on the internet.  After starting TheraLife capsules along with the fish oil this past March, I am stunned. It took approximately 3-4 weeks and my eyes are nice and white with no burning or stinging. My eyes actually shine with a healthy sheen to them. I am referring everyone that I run across with dry-eye symptoms to call TheraLife. I am a Medicare health insurance agent and have over a thousand clients. It's surprising how many people suffer with this ailment.

    Thank you TheraLife so much for ending my agony. Please feel free to use my testimony"

    Sincerely,

    LA, United States

    Do you have dry eyes or allergies?




    Do you have dry eyes or allergies?     


    So your eyes water, nose is running, eyes are red.  Do you have allergies or just dry eyes?

    It is known that 50% of people with rhinitis- have eye symptoms as well.  


    These ocular allergy typical symptoms include



    • Puffy eye lids
    • Red eyes
    • Conjunctivitis - pink eye
    • Watery itchy eyes
    • Runny nose
    • Sneezing
    • Soar throat
    • Cough



    Ocular allergy (OA) includes a group of common and less frequent hypersensitivity disorders frequently misdiagnosed and not properly managed. The diagnosis of OA is usually based on clinical history and signs and symptoms.  However, at the eye doctor's offices, specific identifications of which substance causes your allergies are not available, until now.  

    In-office allergy testing is a way to help diagnose allergy and take charge of the patient’s care. The FDA- approved in-office Doctor's Rx Allergy Formula (Bausch & Lomb) is an objective diagnostic test providing eye care providers a diagnostic tool for allergies. This allows the practitioner the ability to rule in or out the role of perennial or seasonal allergies. It takes less than five minutes to test the patient to a panel of 60 allergens, region-specific, with results in 10-15 minutes. It is easy to read the skin reaction to see what the patient has an IgE response to and guide treatment to include education to avoid the allergens, as well provide topical therapies to alleviate ocular symptoms. If the results are negative, then full steam ahead tackling the beast of dry eye disease.


    TheraLife Eye Can Help


    TheraLife Eye formula treats both dry eyes and allergies.  All natural, restore and revive your normal tear production. Relief dry eyes with y our own tears, no more drops.

    TheraLife Eye is a patented formula that goes intra-cellularly to boost cellular functions, revitalize and control allergy symptoms.    Best of both worlds.
