How To Manage Winter Dry Eyes

How To Manage Winter Dry Eyes

Get simple tips for things you can do.  TheraLife can help!

For some people, this only happens in the winter when force hot air furnaces and heaters are turned on.  The heaters create hot dry air movement that allows tears to evaporate quickly.  Sometimes, increase water intake, use artificial tears, nothing seems to help.  Very annoying!
For those who already have dry eyes, the dry eye condition seems to be worse as soon as the heat is on at home or at work.

What Can I Do to Relief Winter Dry Eyes?

  1. Use a humidifier in the central heating system – this will require frequent cleaning to ensure bacteria and other organisms do not grow in the water reservoir.
  2. Use a humidifier near your desk or inside an office
  3. Drink at least 8 glasses of water
  4. Sit away from a hot air vent
  5. Do not use artificial tears often, it only make your eyes feel drier.  Artificial tears tend to wash away the key tear thickening components -mucin and lipids and make your tear evaporate easier.
  6. Try TheraLife Eye Enhanced to help stimulate and produce tears naturally from your own eyes.

How TheraLife Can Help

For those who already have dry eyes and are already taking TheraLife Eye Enhanced, increase dosage during winter months for relief!  You can decrease the dosage again when spring comes in March when moisture content in the air 
increases.

How To Manage Dry Eyes From Cataract Surgery

How To Manage Dry Eyes From Cataract Surgery

Very often, customers complain about dry eyes after their cataract surgery.  

We finally have a research study that indicates dry eye syndrome existed in very high percentage of people before they undergo cataract surgery.  The study showed 60-% of people do not complain of dry eyes, but their dry eye tests indicated that 77% have dry eyes.

Therefore, treating dry eyes before surgery will help reduce the number of complaints and ease recovery after surgery.  Recommendation of using TheraLife Eye capsules for dry eye relief before surgery will help result in better outcome, and less customer complain.  

This research study is published recently in
Trattler WB, Majmudar PA, Donnenfeld ED, McDonald MB, Stonecipher KG, Goldberg DF. Clin Ophthalmol. 2017 Aug 7;11:1423-1430

Here is an excerpt of the clinical research result.

PURPOSE:

To determine the incidence and severity of dry eye as determined by the International Task Force (ITF) scale in patients being screened before caract surgery.


PATIENTS AND METHODS:

This was a prospective, multi-center, observational study of 136 patients, at least 55 years of age, who were scheduled to undergo cataract surgery. The primary outcome measure was the incidence of dry eye as evaluated by grade on the ITF scale and secondary outcome measures include tear break-up time (TBUT), ocular surface disease index score, corneal staining with fluorescein, conjunctival staining with lissamine green, and a patient questionnaire to evaluate symptoms of dry eye.

RESULTS:
Mean patient age was 70.7 years. A total of 73.5% of patients were Caucasian and 50% were female. Almost 60% had never complained of a foreign body sensation; only 13% complained of a foreign body sensation half or most of the time. The majority of patients (62.9%) had a TBUT ≤5 seconds, 77% of eyes had positive corneal staining and 50% of the eyes had positive central corneal staining. Eighteen percent had Schirmer's score with anesthesia ≤5 mm.

CONCLUSION:
Incidence of dry eyes for people undergoing cataract surgery is very high, inspite of the fact that they did not complain about dry eye symptoms.

How To Manage Dry Eyes At Night


How To Manage Dry Eyes At Night 

Are you  getting up  putting eye drops in through out the night?  Waking up in the morning with eye lids stuck together (Blepharitis) ? This type of morning dryness is actually a result of night time dry eye syndrome.

What is Night Time Dry Eye Syndrome?

For many chronic dry eye sufferers experience extremely dry and painful eyes at night which requires frequent use of eye drops through out the night, disturbing sleep and causing fatigue the following day.
Blepharitis.

In the morning, if your  eye lids are  stuck together that required washing eyes with saline, warm water to open.  This  crusty build up on the eye lid is a sign of Blepharitis.  Belpharitis can be effectively treated with antibiotics plus daily eye lid cleaning.  Use TheraLife Eye to activate your tear secretion glands and produce balanced sustainable tears all day long.


Causes of Night Time Dry Eyes?


Some of the causes for night time dry eye include:
- Partially open eye lids allowing tears to evaporate  at night
- Lower body temperature and metabolism resulting in delivering less nutrients and blood to the eye
- Decreased tear production as a result of a lower body metabolism
- Allergens in the bedroom that may cause dry eyes such as; sheets, pillows, dust mites, pet fur, and pollens you brought with you from outside


What to do to Relief  Night Time Dry Eye Syndrome


1. Take 4 capsules of TheraLife Eye Enhanced right at bedtime.

2. Use a humidifier in the bedroom to provide more moisture

-3.Avoid sleeping under a heater or air vent

-4.Avoid sleeping in the direct path of a fan

-5. Use preservative-free nighttime eye gels or ointments that protect the eye if you must.

-6.Use night time goggles or masks with moisture pads to prevent tear evaporation

-7. A good home alternative for the goggles is to take two cotton discs, run them under cool tap water and use surgical or athletic tape and tape them over your eyes at night. The moisture pads create a barrier that protect your eyes and prevent excessive tear evaporation. If this improves your night time dryness, consider investing in some night time hydration goggles.

How Can TheraLife Eye Enhanced help?
TheraLife® Eye Enhanced works by increasing intra-cellular metabolism (Mito-Activation), membrane permeability and blood micro circulation. This enables the Eye Enhanced to stimulate tear secretion glands to produce its own balanced sustainable tears all day long.

Taking TheraLife Eye Enhanced capsules before bedtime can often relieve night time dry eye symptoms.

How To Manage Aging and Dry Eye Disease


How To Manage Aging and Dry Eye Disease


Dry eyes are one of the most common problems among seniors as they age. With age, our eyes and body are undergoing a variety of changes.  Decreased cardiac function results in decreased micro-circulation which leads to poor supply of blood and nutrients to the eye.  If dry eye is left untreated, the cornea can develop ulcers as well as other severe eye problems.

Causes of Aging Dry Eyes

As we age, our body produces fewer tears.  Dry eyes are a very common complaint among older adults. Here are a few of the different causes that influence our dry eyes:
  • Watery Eyes- Ironically, dry eyes can cause watery eyes because the body senses the amount of fewer tears which triggers the brain to produce reflex tears (excessive watery tearing). This excessive tearing however does not lubricate your eyes it only makes the problem worse.
  • Menopause- Hot flashes, insomnia, vaginal dryness, mood swings, fatigue, headaches are all associated with menopause. However, more than 60% of women experiencing these symptoms also experience dry eyes.  Women at this stage are also vulnerable in developing autoimmune diseases like Sjogren’s syndrome; Rheumatoid Arthritis (see section under TheraLife Eye Enhanced – Autoimmune Dry Eyes.)
  • Tear Production- As we age, our eyes naturally slow down the tear production process. Tears are a major protective agent for the eyes. Tears not only wash away dust from our eyes, but also soothe our eyes, provide oxygen and nutrients to the cornea, as well as help defend against eye infections by removing microorganisms that can form communities in our eyes.
  • Medications- Medications can cause dry eye. This includes some medications, antidepressants, antihistamines, muscle relaxants, sleeping pills, and pain relievers.   Natural therapy sometimes tends to be a more balanced approach to aging diseases.
  • Caffeine in foods- Coffee, tea, sodas and chocolates are some of our everyday indulgences that contain caffeine.  Caffeine causes blood vessels to constrict which results in decreased circulation, cause insomnia, and a variety of health issues.  Try avoiding these foods and drinks if possible as caffeine is known to dehydrate the body.
  • Computer use- Internet allows us to connect with the outside world.  Sitting in front of the computer for extended periods of time can significantly dry your eyes out.  Remember to blink more often.

Prevention Measures as You Age

We strongly recommend the following things you can do to help prevent and relieve the severe symptoms of Dry Eye, regardless of your age. Here are a few examples:
  • Drink Water- At least 8 glasses a day.  Water is a great source to keep your body hydrated, especially if you live in dry, hot or cold climates.
  • Humidifiers- Either in your central heating system or individual rooms inside your home can bring moisture into the air, especially if you live in a dry location, or during winter when there is less moisture in the air.
  • Natural Supplements- Omega-3’s (especially fish oil) and Omega 6’s is a great way to help you thicken your tears and decrease your dry eye symptoms.   For women, adding Primrose Oil to Fish Oil can also help with hormone balance.

How does TheraLife Eye work?
TheraLife Eye works by restoring normal cell functions to tear secretion glands and increase tear production to provide eye moisture.

Clinical Proof - Dry Eye Syndrome Linked to Depression & Anxiety.


Clinical Proof - Dry Eye Syndrome Linked to Depression & Anxiety


Dry Eye Disease has significant impact on people's quality of life - you are not alone.

It is often that TheraLife talk to patients who has Chronic Dry Eye Syndrome - who also has signs of depression and often on anti-depressants.  Interviewing these people often reveal that the constant pain, discomfort of dry eye symptoms is leading them to depression. Depression intern causes blood vessel constrictions and affect the blood flow and delivery of nutrients to the eyes.

On the other hand, it has been well documented that patients who have a high level of anxiety and depression can lead to dry eyes due to bodily fluids being diverted away from the eyes to other organs.

Often this correlation between Dry Eye Syndrome causing depression and anxiety is being ignored, and yet it is an important factor in being able to treat Dry Eye Syndrome successfully.

Finally we have a clinical study that documented the correlation between people with Dry Eye Syndrome developing depression and anxiety- Published in "Cornea"  at this link

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21174591

Wen, et al conclude:  DES (Dry Eye Syndrome) is frequent in patients with depressive and anxiety disorders, especially patients who are older, have longer duration of psychiatric disorder, and use an selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors- SSRI. Psychiatric disorders and use of antidepressants should be considered in the differential diagnosis of Dry Eye Syndrome

This study aimed to determine whether patients with dry eye syndrome have more symptoms of anxiety and depression than controls without dry eye syndrome.

This study also concluded that - Anxiety and depression are correlated with DES, demonstrating that DES is an important public health problem that merits increased attention and research.

Recommendations from TheraLife

To reduce anxiety and depression. 

1. Simple Daily Exercise-
Suggest to the patient to use short meditation measure to calm down- e.g. sitting in a quiet room with low light, feet planted on the ground, close eyes and start counting from one.  Keep all distracting thoughts out of mind, focus only on counting.  If interfering thoughts come into play, start counting from one again.  Practice this every day until you can count numbers up to 10 minutes.  The result is - after 10 minutes, the patient feels refreshed, less anxious.

2. Practice yoga - with or without an instructor.

3. Meditation

How to Relieve Dry Eyes with Cornea Abrasion

How To Relief Dry Eyes with Cornea Abrasion


Severe chronic dry eyes left untreated can result in cornea abrasion and blindness.   That is why I want to share my personal story - hope you find it helpful. 


Personal Story


I have suffered from chronic dry eyes for nearly 20 years.  My eyes were 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 Restasis from my family doctor and after enduring 6 months, my eyes became more red.  I threw it 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."
