Tips for Dry Eye Relief and Workplace Stress

Workplace stress can cause changes in your body, your emotions , and induce chronic dry eyes.  Many of the familiar symptoms are:
  • Dry Eyes
  • Headache
  • Fatigue – feeling tired
  • Stiff Neck and Shoulder Pain
  • Back Pain
  • Sweaty Palms and Feet
  • Upset stomach
  • Depression
Chronic stress left untreated can lead to serious long term illnesses and decreased immune systems.  Some of these examples are:
  • chronic dry eye syndrome
  • heart diseases
  • chronic muscle pains
  • changes in hormone levels that lead to low fertility
  • weakening lung functions leading to catching colds and flu’s more easily,
  • asthma
  • obstructive lung diseases
  • worsening of skin problems like acne, eczema and psoriasis
Relationship between stress and dry eyes are well documented. 

We can understand this phenomena from how stress affects the circulatory system (How Does Stress Affect the Circulatory System. By Adrian Whittle). Stress causes the blood to produce hormones that increase the blood flow (increase blood pressure) and make blood thicker (causing strokes). As the heart is working harder, the micro-circulation of blood to the extremities such as skin, legs, and arms are decreased.
This decrease in blood supply may also include the brain and eyes. Eyes being connected to the brain already has a delicate blood circulation balance. Under stress, blood supply to the brain and eyes are both compromised, causing dry eyes.  Left untreated, this condition can become chronic.

Watery Eyes Can Be Caused By Dry Eyes- TheraLife Can Help

A large percentage of Watery Eyes can be caused by dry eyes- Read on.

Irritated Dry Eyes cause inflammation which in turn cause dry eye symptoms such as dry, irritable, sandy gritty, light sensitive, burning, blurry visions and more.  Eye drops often make the dry eyes worse.  Your brain starts to secrete Reflex Tears ( the tear you cry with)  in an attempt to lubricate your eyes.  This Reflex Tear is of poor quality- evaporates quickly, and thus cause your eyes to water even more.

How Can TheraLife Help?

To treat watery eyes caused by dry eyes, we first must relief and restore your tear secretion glands to produce normal balanced tears.  Once you experience dry eye relief, then your tear will eventually stop over production.  Watery dry eyes are harder to treat, and thus will take longer.

Here is a is a personal story from a TheraLife user:

"I have suffered for many years with severe watery and painful eyes.  Nothing I ever tried had worked.  I visited many eye specialists who told me to wash my eyes with salt solution and use various eye drops which only appeared to aggravate my eyes even more! I  am so pleased to have found Theralife. Initially I took TheraLife Eye capsules at 8 capsules per day for 2 months. Now I  have been taking 4 capsules a day now for about 2 years plus the Omega 3 Fish Oil.  This have made a huge difference to my dry eye problem. I don’t use eye drops anymore. I clean my eyelids thoroughly twice a day in the morning and evening to prevent blepharitis recurrence.  I am so delighted with Theralife Eye. Thank you again for your personal care and response. Yours sincerely

Allergies and Dry Eyes- Tips for Relief from TheraLife

Allergy Dry Eyes

Spring is here and many of us are bothered by allergies, watery eyes, runny nose, headaches.  If you have dry eyes, you may experience worse symptoms.

For those already on TheraLife Eye, take additional capsules, TheraLife Eye has ingredients to combat mild to moderate allergies.  If needed, take either Claritin or Zertac- these are longer acting but less drying than the conventional anti-histmaines like Sudafed.

About 30 -50%  of the people who live in United States have allergy symptoms.  Nearly 75 % of those allergy symptoms affect the eyes.  In other parts of the world where the weather is dry, dusty and pollution is high, this statistics may even be higher.  Allergies can trigger other problems, such as conjunctivitis -pink eye(see section on red eyes) and asthma.

Symptoms of Dry Eyes and Allergy are often confused due to their similarities. For patients with existing dry eye conditions, allergies during spring and fall where pollen count is high become even more severe.

Some of the common symptoms are:
  • Red, swollen or itchy eyes – similar to dry eye symptoms
  • Runny nose; sneezing; coughing
  • Itchy nose, mouth or throat
  • Headache from sinus congestion
  • Fatigue from lack of sleep.
Allergy in additional to dry eyes often are presented with stronger symptoms of dry; itchy; red and watery eyes.  Itchy eyes are normally a result from allergy rather than classical dry eye conditions.  Some people have both symptoms all year around.

TheraLifeâ Eye Enhanced has natural botanical ingredients that relieve both Dry Eyes and Allergy Eyes.

Causes of Allergy Dry Eyes

Most allergens (agents that elicit allergy symptoms) are airborne. They come in contact with your eyes and nose. Airborne allergens include pollen, mold, dust and pet dander (cats and dogs in particular).  Some allergens like dust mites are embedded into carpets, drapery, bedding and window visors.  In that case, the allergens are triggering allergy and dry eyes all year round.
Conventional Treatments for Allergy Dry Eyes:
  • The most common treatment for allergy is anti-histamines for quick relief.   However anti-histamines cause dehydration, sleepiness, sometimes dizziness, and often are the causes for Dry Eyes.

  • Decongestant eye drops-, which constricts blood vessels in your eye to take the red out.  Long-term use can cause your eyes to become dependent on these eye drops, and when you stop, the blood vessels become even larger, making red eyes worse.
  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drops can sooth allergy eyes (e.g. Patanol).  Its effect is longer term than anti-histamines.  It is effective in treating allergy eyes, but not dry eyes.
  • Prescription steroidal eye drops provide quick relief.  However, long term use have been associated with side effects such as increased inner  eye pressure(intraocular pressure) leading to glaucoma and damage to optic nerve. Steroids also have been known to cause cataracts. Prescription steroid eye drops are normally used for very severe cases and no longer than one month.

1. TheraLife Eye Enhanced?
TheraLife Eye Enhanced is an all-natural botanical product that does not have some of the side effects of anti-histamines (dehydration, dizziness, fatigue and Dry Eyes) or drugs.  TheraLifeâ Eye Enhanced has ingredients that relieve symptoms of Allergy Eyes as well as Dry Eyes.

2.  Allergy medications- we recommend Claritin – a mast cell stabilizer.
3.  Use a Hepa filter air cleaner

4. Leave outer clothing and shoes outside before coming into the house to avoid tracking allergens indoors.
DO NOT USE ANTIHISTAMINES – e.g. Benydryl, Claritin D
