Dry Eye Treatment - Omega 3 Fish Oil Alone is Not Enough


Dry Eye Treatment- Omega 3 Fish Oil is Not Enough

Fish Oil and Dry Eyes


Fish oil is known for being rich in unsaturated fatty acids. These fatty acids are known to benefit the eye and may assist in the prevention of macular degeneration, cataract and dry eye. Fish oils, also called omega-3 fatty acids, contain components called docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). These acids are naturally found in the retina of the eye and are vital nutrients that maintain healthy function of the retina. As we get older, our bodies may produce less DHA & EPA and the only the way the body can take in these vital essential fatty acids is through proper nutrition and supplementation.

Benefits of Fish Oil and Dry Eyes
  • Reduce chronic inflammation from dry eye conditions.
  • Produces a better quality tear that prevents excessive tear evaporation.
  • Reduce risk of Macular Degeneration, Cataract and other various age related eye disorders.
  • Omega-3's benefit other regions of the body including the brain, immune system, cardiovascular system and the skin.
Omega-3 Fish Oils that can be found in health food stores are often of a lower quality and contain more contaminants (mercury and PCB's) and toxins than refined oil. TheraLife uses only the purest fish oils that have been molecularly distilled and 3rd party tested This ensures toxins and contaminants such as mercury, lead and PCB’s meet or exceed acceptable limits set by the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) and other regulatory agencies.


Is Omega 3 Fish Oil alone enough to relief chronic dry eyes?  




Omega 3 fish oil alone is often not enough to relief chronic dry eyes.  The chronic inflammation caused by dry eyes tend to shut down tear producing glands (lacrimal and meibomian glands) which makes eyes even drier.  This is where TheraLife Eye comes in play.  With TheraLife Eye and Purified Omega 3 Fish Oil, you are getting the optimum treatment for chronic dry eye relief. 



TheraLife Eye revives and restores normal tear function.

Best Watery Eyes Treatment That Works


Best Watery Eyes Treatment That Works

Summary


Watery dry eyes are caused by chronic dry eyes that did not getting relief.  Your brain started to provide tears by crying.  this is called Reflux Tears.  Reflux tears ia a part of your Autonomic system that you have no control over.  Reflux tears wash away all your natural lubricants your eyes produce, making your eyes drier and drier.  

Eye drops don't work for watery dry eyes. 

The only way to stop watery eyes is to treat the dry eyes.  TheraLife Eye capsules restores and revives your own tear secretion glands to stop watery dry eyes.  It works. 

What  is Watery Eye

Watery eyes occur when there is too much tear production  ( over tear production) or poor drainage of the tear duct.

Major cause of watery eye is Dry Eyes. Treat Dry Eyes with TheraLife Eye and tear over production will stop.  Read On....

Watery eye is the result of irritation or inflammation in or around your eye that causes your eye to increase tear production. One or both of your eyes may become watery. Tears are your eyes’ way of protecting themselves and expelling debris or clearing infections. Watery eye is usually caused by irritation or infection of the eye, injury to the eye from trauma, or a common cold. Other symptoms of eye irritation, including itching, redness, a gritty feeling, and swelling of the eyelids, often accompany watery eyes.

Physical irritants that get in your eye cause watery eye as the body increases tear production to wash away the offending substance, which may be smoke or dust in the air or personal care products such as soap or shampoo. Allergies are a very common cause of watery eyes. An allergy that affects your eyes may be local, such as an allergic reaction to eye makeup, or more generalized, such as hay fever.
Infections or inflammations of the eyelid margin, the area near your eyelashes, are also frequent causes of watery eye. These conditions include blepharitis (inflammation of the eyelid margin), chalazion (inflammation of a blocked oil gland in the eyelid margin), and stye or hordeolum (localized bacterial infection of an oil gland or eyelash follicle in the eyelid margin).
In most cases, watery eye is a result of a mild condition and usually resolves on its own. In rare cases, watery eye can be associated with more serious infections or trauma. Because your eyes and vision are vital to your quality of life, be sure to contact your health care provider if you have any eye symptoms that cause you concern.

Watery Eyes Causes

Tears are necessary for the normal lubrication of the eye and to wash away particles and foreign bodies.

In general, anything that irritates or inflames the surface of your eye can cause watery eye. Increased tear production is part of the body’s natural defense system and serves to wash away irritating substances and infectious agents.

Physical irritants, such as smoke or dust in the air or soap and shampoo in your home, increase tear production. Allergies are another very common cause of watery eyes.

Infections or inflammations of the eyelid margin are also frequent causes of watery eye. These conditions include blepharitis (inflammation of the eyelid margin), chalazion (inflammation of a blocked oil gland in the eyelid margin), and stye or hordeolum (localized bacterial infection of an oil gland or eyelash follicle in the eyelid margin).
  • Dry Eyes- A major cause of watery eyes.  Dry eye causes the eyes to become uncomfortable, which stimulates the body to produce too many tears. In the case of over production of tears, the Reflex Tear  the tear that is stimulated by the brain for you  to cry has taken over in an attempt to lubricate your eyes.  Reflex tear is of poor quality and tend to wash away the natural lubricants that your eyes produce, making your eyes drier and drier.  Key reason is, your lacrimal gland which normally produce tears is not functioning properly.   In order to stop tear over production,  you need to get the lacrimal and meibomian glands both to secrete balanced tears.  TheraLife Eye can help you  balance the normal cell functions of your tear secretion glands and stop tear over production.    It is important that you  test for dry eyes when you have  watery eyes.
  • Allergy to mold and dust.
  • Blepharitis- read more about how TheraLife eye can help with Blepharitis and Watery Eyes both.
  • Blockage of the tear duct
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Environmental irritants (smog or chemicals in the air, wind, strong light, blowing dust)
  • Eyelid turning inward or outward- causing constant irritation causing watery eyes
  • Foreign bodies and abrasions- causing both dry eyes and watery eyes
  • Infection- both viral and bacterial which can be treated with antibiotics.
  • Inward-growing eyelashes- causing irritation causing eyes to over water.
  • Irritation from allergens – causing over production of tears and constantly watery eyes.
  • Aging is a major cause of water dry eyes because dry eye is a natural process of aging.

Causes of Watery Dry Eyes:

Chronic Dry Eye is a  major cause of watery eyes.

Dry eye causes the eyes to become uncomfortable, which stimulates the body to produce too many tears. In the case of over production of tears, the Reflex Tear the tear that is stimulated by the brain for you  to cry has taken over in an attempt to lubricate your eyes.  Reflex tear is of poor quality and tend to wash away the natural lubricants that your eyes produce, making your eyes drier and drier.  Key reason is, your lacrimal gland which normally produce tears is not functioning properly.
In order to stop tear over production,  you need to get the lacrimal and meibomian glands both to secrete balanced tears.  TheraLife Eye can help you  balance the normal cell functions of your tear secretion glands and stop tear over production.    It is important that you  test for dry eyes when you have watery eyes.

Oddly enough, one of the most common causes of excess tearing is dry eyes. Drying causes the eyes to become uncomfortable, which stimulates the body to produce too many tears. One of the main tests for tearing is to check whether the eyes are too dry.

Watery Eyes Symptoms:

Watery eye may accompany other common symptoms including:
  • Burning feeling in the eyes
  • Crusting of the eyelid margin
  • Discharge from the eyes
  • Gritty feeling
  • Redness of the eyes or eyelids
  • Runny nose (nasal congestion)
  • Sense of a foreign body in the eye
  • Sneezing
  • Swelling of the face
Serious Watery Eye Symptoms that might indicate a life-threatening condition
In some cases, watery eye may occur with other symptoms that might indicate a serious, or even life-threatening, condition that should be immediately evaluated in an emergency setting. Seek immediate medical care (call 911) if you, or someone you are with, have watery eyes along with other serious symptoms including:
  • Chemical burns  in the eye area
  • High fever (higher than 101 degrees Fahrenheit)
  • Respiratory or breathing problems, such as short of breath, difficulty breathing, labored breathing, wheezing, not breathing, choking
  • Sudden change in vision, loss of vision, or eye pain
  • Trauma to the eye

Home Care for Watery Eyes

Consider the cause of the tearing. If the eyes feel dry and burn and then begin to tear,  Eye drops don't work for watery dry eyes.

However, if watery eyes persist, frequent use of eye drops are no longer effective.  Try TheraLife Eye which normalize both the lacrimal and meibomian gland functions intra-cellularly.

If the eyes are itchy and uncomfortable, consider allergy as a cause. Over-the-counter antihistamines can be useful. A mucous discharge from the eyes or red eyes may indicate a blocked tear duct or eyelid problem.

Best Watery Eye Treatment That Works

  • TheraLife Eye for Watery Dry Eyes caused by Chronic Dry Eyes.
  • Antibiotics
  • Artificial tears- for mild cases.
  • Surgery
  • Topical antihistamines- eye drops
If you might have a blockage of the tear system, your doctor may use a probe to test the tear drainage system. This is painless. If you have a blockage, you may have surgery to correct the problem. Minor surgery can fix improper eyelid position.

Diagnoses of Watery Eye

To diagnose your condition, your doctor or licensed health care practitioner will ask you several questions related to your eyelid symptoms including:
  • When did your eyes first become watery?
  • Does the wateriness occur in one or both of your eyes?
  • Do you have any other symptoms?
  • Has your vision changed?
  • Are you taking any medications?
  • Do you have any allergies?
  • Has anything hit you in the eye or flown into your eye?
  • Have you been around anyone with an eye infection recently?
  • Have you had a similar condition before?
  • Shirmer’s Test to measure tear volume.

What are the Potential Complications of Watery Eye?

Watery eyes are generally caused by mild conditions and usually do not result in permanent damage to the eye. In very rare cases, a watery eye may be caused by a more serious condition such as a serious allergic reaction or infection, which, left untreated, can lead to permanent complications. Once the underlying cause is diagnosed, it is important for you to follow the treatment plan that you and your health care professional design specifically for you to reduce the risk of potential complications including:
  • Loss of vision and blindness
  • Scarring of the eye
  • Spread of infection

When you need to seek help:

You may be able to figure out the cause of your watery eyes on your own:
  • If your eyes feel dry, raw, and uncomfortable just before they begin to water, you are probably experiencing dry eye syndrome.
  • If your eyes are itchy and swollen, allergies are the likely culprit.

Some steps you can take to prevent dry, itchy, eye irritation include remembering to blink regularly when using your computer and taking occasional breaks to rest your eyes and prevent eye strain. Increase the humidity in your home or work environment if your eyes are dry and irritated. Wear sunglasses to reduce eye irritation from sun and wind exposure, and drink plenty of water to prevent becoming dehydrated and to maintain healthy tearing.

Vitamin D Deficiency Linked with Chronic Dry Eye Syndrome.

Vitamin D Deficiency link with Chronic Dry Eye Syndrome

A new research study published in the International Journal of Rheumatic Diseases finds that vitamin D deficiency is strongly associated with dry eye and its severity.  We also know that treating dry eyes with Vitamin D alone is not enough.  

What is Dry Eyes?

Dry eye is a common condition where the eye may not be producing enough tears, or when the tear is not thick enough therefore, evaporating too quickly resulting in "Evaporative Dry Eyes"  The symptoms of dry eyes include but not limited to : discomfort, stinging, redness, tired, blurry vision, sensitivity to light, foreign body sensation and more.  Inflammation is the biggest culprit of dry eye syndrome.  

Linking between Dry Eyes and Vitamin D Deficiency

Researchers wanted to find out the role of vitamin D plays  in dry eyes because of its anti-inflammatory properties. In addition, researchers have proposed that vitamin D may help prevent dry eyes by inducing cathelicidin, an anti-microbial protein that can be produced by cells in the eyes and heal eye wounds.

Design of Research Study

The researchers used three different tests to diagnose dry eyes: Schirmer’s test, tear break-up time test (TBUT) and ocular surface disease index (OSDI). They also evaluated the functional status, pain severity and fatigue severity of the subjects by using the Stanford Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ), Visual analogue scale-pain (VAS-pain) and the Fatigue severity scale (FSS), respectively.

Vitamin D deficiency is defined as having blood vitamin D level less than 20 ng/ml, where as normal is around 50 ng/ml. 

Research Outcome and Results Summary. 

1.  More than half of the vitamin D deficient people cannot produce enough tears - as measure by schirmer's test.

2. Vitamin D. deficient people are 3 times like to have evaporative dry eyes due to tears not thick enough.  As measured by Tear Breakup Test

3.  Vitamin D deficient people are  3 times more likely to have severe dry eye symptoms such as pain, fatigue, and visual impairment.  


Conclusion

However, it seems possible that if you keep your vitamin D level around 50 ng/ml (125 nmol/L), it is much less likely you will be bothered by dry eye.

TheraLife Eye - help you restore, revive and produce your own tears for dry eye relief, all day long.

How to stop recurring Chalazion/Stye? Treatment that works!

How to stop recurring Chalazion/Stye? Treatment that works

Wondering why you have had a chalazion or stye twice in 3 months.  You have come to the right place.  

What is a Chalazion? 


Chalazion is caused by a blocked meibomian oil gland located on your eye lids.  It is like a pimple,  Chalazion is not infectious, unlike a Stye.  Chalazion often goes away by itself, or can be drained.  On the other hand, Styes are infectious, often treated by antibiotics.   Typical treatment for chalazion is a hot compress.  Note a hot wash cloth is not good enough.  Hot wash clothes do not stay hot long enough.

Why do you get recurring Chalazion or Stye?


People with meibomian gland dysfunction - clogging of these meibomian oil glands tend to have recurring chalazions, or styes.  Primarily because the underlying reason for chalazion - blocked oil glands has not been thoroughly addressed.  

What else is happening besides Chalazion?


If your meibomian oil glands are clogged, most likely you have chronic dry eyes and perhaps also Blepharitis.  Clogged oil glands means your eyes are not producing the proper lubricants to thicken tears.  Dry eyes result in inflammation, inflammation in turn shuts down tear functions, including meibomian glands.  Therefore this vicious cycle continues.  Dry eyes result in inflammation, inflammation result in Blepharitis and shut down meibomian glands.

Best treatment for recurring Chalazion


To stop this vicious cycle, we need to treat the root cause of recurring chalazion - Chronic Dry Eyes.
The recommended protocols is as follows:

1. TheraLife Eye capsules to treat dry eyes - restore and revive your own tear functions for dry eye relief all day long.  Your own tears, no more drops.

2.  Hot Compress- gel type that heats up in the microwave oven for 20-30 seconds, place on your eyes for at least 10 minutes.

3. After hot compress, gently massage your eye lids to loosen any clogging

4. Clean eye lids after hot compress to remove debri, and prevent bacteria and/or mites re-attaching onto your eye lids.  Stop the re-infection cycle.

5. 4000mg of Fish Oil per day- Fish Oil is strongly anti-inflammatory, plus helps with adding lubrication to your tears.

Causes for Blepharitis Recurrence and Treatment That Works

Causes for Blepharitis Recurrence and Treatment That Works

We have seen customers who has crusty sticky build up on their eye lids, red, painful eyes, puffy and swollen eye lids over and over again.  They have been diagnosed with Blepharitis

They have been doing hot compresses - often with just a hot wash cloth plus eye lid cleansing with either baby shampoo, or a drug store brand of eye wipes that are detergent based.  Yet months after months the condition does not improve.  

Typically, eye doctors then try antibiotics, steroid drops, various types of prescription eye drops to no avail.  What is going on? 

What is Blepharitis? 

Blepharitis is the inflammation of the eye lids, often cause by bacteria or mites.  This inflammation shuts down tear functions resulting in dry eyes.  Therefore, if you have Blepharitis, you also have dry eyes.  Blepharitis treatment must include both dry eyes and blepharitis.  

Why Blepharitis Recurrence?

Typical Blepharitis treatment include anti-biotics.  Reason why multiple bouts of different anti-biotics may not work well for blepharitis is as follows

1.  Bacteria mutate against antibiotics rendering the current antibiotic ineffective
2.  Bacteria re-attach to the eye lids after antibiotics are cleaned off . 
3.  Tea tree oil is the treatment of choice for mites- same principle, when tee tree oil is  washed off, mites re-anchor onto your eye lashes.  

Why Hot Compress?  

Blepharitis also cause meibomian gland dysfunction - clogging of your meibomian oil glands on your eye lids.  The inflammation from Blepharitis causes the oil gland to malfunction.  Meibomian glands secrete lubricants such as protein, lipids and mucin to thicken tears.  Without it, the tear is too thin and evaporates quickly.  Therefore you now have dry eyes.

The best meibomian gland dysfunction treatment is to use hot compress to melt and unclog the glands.  A hot wash cloth is not good enough.  WEe recommend you use a gel type of hot compress that heats up in the micro-wave oven to provide heat for at least 10 minutes each time.  Gently massage the eye lids to allow clogging to come out.  Followed by eye lid cleansing

Eye Lid Cleansing Essential for Blepharitis Treatment and Recovery


It is very important to clean eye lids daily, to get rid of the sticky crusty build up that attracts even more bacteria and mites.  

Why Detergent Based Eye Lid Cleansers Don't Work?


Detergent such as baby shampoo, or the drug store type of eye wipes, eye sprays for blepharitis do help remove the sticky substance on the eye lids.  However, bacteria and mites come right back onto the eye lids.  This is a major reason for Blepharitis recurrence. 

Why Hypochlorous Acid Eye Lid Cleanser?  


Hypochlorous acid has been found to disturb the bio-film layer on your eye lid so the bacteria and mites have no place to anchor back onto your eye lids.  No antibiotics, no detergents, it works and is gentle.

How can TheraLife Eye Help?
TheraLife Eye is effective in reducing inflammation and stimulates tear flow for chronic dry eye relief. Often people with chronic dry eyes also have Blepharitis. Treating chronic dry eyes reduces the  inflammation, and also helps to reduce the recurrence of blepharitis. It is highly recommended that those who have Blepharitis stay on TheraLife Eye long term to increase the rate of success.

Dry Eyes- and Artificial Tears -Eye Drops

Dry Eyes- Artificial Tears

Dry eyes give you red, stinging, blurry vision and sometimes eye pain.  Dry Eye Symptoms can change the quality of your life, cause depression, and loss of productivity at work.  Sounds familiar?

Your eye doctors keep prescribing more and more eye drops of all kinds, the ones without preservatives, the ones that are thicker and suppose to stay in your eyes longer.  You may be putting drops in your eyes every hour, your eyes are still dry.  What is going on?

What is in your tears?


Your tear has over 300 components that is difficult for any artificial tear to duplicate.  Your tear is produced by a pea size gland located at the outer upper cornea of your eyes called Lacrimal Gland.  The tear must be balanced by lubrication produced and secreted by your meibomian oil glands located on your eye lids.  Goblet cells produce mucin to protect the mucous membrane in your eyes. 

Artificial tears serve to wash away the natural mucin, proteins, that your eyes produce.  This is why your eye ball is getting very clean, too clean.  Your eyes become drier and drier the more you use artificial tears, and the inflammation causes dry eye symptoms to get worse.  

The Ultimate Dry Eye Treatment


The vest dry eye treatment is to make your own body to produce its own balanced tears for dry eye relief.  Dry eyes result in inflammation, and inflammation shuts down your tear functions.  This is your body's natural defense mechanism.  TheraLife Eye capsules are designed to treat from within your body, to reduce inflammation, and restore your own tear function to make your own tears all day long.

TheraLife Eye - help you restore, revive and produce your own tears for dry eye relief, all day long.

Diet to prevent Chronic Dry Eyes, Sjogren's



Diet to prevent Chronic Dry Eyes, Sjogren's, High Blood Pressure


TheraLife gets this question frequently, what can I eat that will help prevent me from getting chronic dry eyes, Sjogrens, rheumatoid arthritis disorders.  Since inflammation plays a major role in people with chronic diseases, this article provide a more defined dietary guidance.

The DASH Diet

DASH diet was developed as a guideline for healthy eating.  It does more than just weight reduction.  It is clear that this guideline also help prevent the development of chronic diseases. Here is an updated version in 2010.  Key features of DASH are to increase consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables and low-fat dairy products. Fruits and vegetables are important because of the low-caloric and high-nutrient density, and the satiating effects of fiber. Low-fat dairy consumption provides calcium that is necessary to ensure bone health. Other components of DASH include nuts, legumes (dried beans and peas), whole grains, and limiting salt and added sugar intake.

Nuts are rich in mono- and polyunsaturated fats, high in fiber and protein. Legumes are a rich source of protein as well as fiber, and lean meats are important sources of protein. Grains are an important source of energy and should be in the form as whole grains, which will increase fiber consumption. The DASH diet also limits salt to 2300 milligrams per day and added sugar intake to 5 tablespoons per week for the average 2000-calories/day diet. Table 1 shows the recommended intakes of each of these food groups in servings per day for those who consume 2000 calories per day.

Nuts/seeds/legumes4-5/week1/3 cup or 1 1/2 oz nuts
2 Tbsp peanut butter 2 Tbsp or 1/2 oz seeds 1/2 cup cooked legumes
Fruits4-5/day1 medium fruit 1/4 cup dried fruit 1/2 cup fresh, frozen, or canned fruit 1/2 cup fruit juice
Vegetables4-5/day1 cup raw leafy vegetables
1/2 cup cut-up raw or cooked vegetables
Adapted from the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans


Reduce High Blood Pressure:

DASH was originally developed and studied as a diet to reduce high blood pressure in a randomized controlled trial published in The New England Journal of Medicine  in 1997. In this study, a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy products and low in saturated fat was compared with a control diet and shown to result in substantial reductions in blood pressure. All of the diets had the same 3 grams/day of sodium. After 8 weeks, the systolic blood pressure of the people in the DASH group was, 5.5 mm Hg lower and diastolic blood pressure was 3 mm Hg lower compared with participants on the control group.


Reduce incidents of Heart Disease, Cancer, and Obesity

Prospective  studies have shown the DASH diet to have a number of other beneficial health effects. In a study of the Nurses' Health Study indicated that women who were ate primarily a DASH-style diet, low consumption of processed meats, sugar-sweetened beverages had lower risk for coronary heart disease over almost 25 years of follow-up.
Other studies indicated the beneficial effects in colorectal adenoma, metabolic syndrome, congestive heart failure, and obesity.

How is this related to Chronic Dry Eyes and Autoimmune Diseases?

One of the key reasons for chronic dry eyes in any chronic disorders is poor blood circulation to the brain and eyes.  This initiates the disease process creating inflammation and damages to organs and tissues.

TheraLife can Help!
TheraLife's formulas are targeted to increase blood circulation and restore normal functions to organs and tissues alike.  Restore and prevent further damages  Eating a healthy diet can help maintain normal functions and prevent future damages.
