Post LASIK Dry Eyes - TheraLife Can Help.


It is known that LASIK surgery for vision correction often result in dry eyes.  The healing process sometimes result in uneven cornea surface that creates friction each time you blink.  This friction creates inflammation and shuts on your tear secretion glands.

TheraLife Eye goes intra-celluarly to stimulate tear secretion glands to produce normal balanced tears to relief dry eyes.  TheraLife Eye also contains strong anti-inflammatory agents to counter act inflammation. 

Here is a personal story from one of the TheraLife customers.  Learn how this can help you!


" My experience with TheraLife Eye Enhanced has been remarkable.  I had lasik eye surgery in 2007, because my eyes were too dry to wear contact lenses.  I should not have been a candidate for LASIK surgery, but like many others, my eye doctor went ahead with the surgery.  I was 62 years old and very near-sighted. 

The surgery corrected my vision perfectly for both distance and close up, but I was left with eyes so dry, red and painful that the quality fof my daily life was severely impacted.  The eye doctor at the LASIK center prescribed a prescription eye drop and sent me away.  These prescription eye drops are expensive and di d not help relief my dry eyes.  I began seeing other opthalmologist who diagnosed me with chronic blepharitis and gave me a steriod eye drop - which I used for ten days each month together with the prescription eye drop twice a day.  The steroid eye drop had severe side effects that affect the liver and kidney function.   I was quite concerned about using steroid drops in the long run.

I searched online and found TheraLife eye.  I took 8 capsules per day as recommended and now I am down to two pills a day.  I take a few more when I travel to low humidity areas or just when my eyes feel dry. No more redness.  No more scratchiness.  No more dryness.  I actually feel that I look younger, because I'm not squinting in discomfort and my eyes are clear again.

I recommended this product to a friend who was using the same prescription eye drop until her insurance no longer covered it. She also is happy with the results from taking TheraLife Eye.  It may seem expensive at the beginning when the dosage is high, but once you started to maintain on dosage, it becomes very economical for the great results you get.  Best of all, it worked.

DASH Diet to Prevent and Relief Dry Eye Syndrome


Inflammation is involved in chronic dry eyes, autoimmune diseases such as Sjogrens, rheumatoid arthritis, Reynaud's syndrome and more.  The proper diet can greatly reduce inflammation and help with recovery.

This blog gives a brief guideline to the Dash diet which has shown promise in reducing inflammation and reduce chronic symptoms

The DASH Diet
DASH diet was developed as a guideline for healthy eating in general.  It is clear that this guideline also help prevent the development of chronic diseases including chronic dry eyes, autoimmune diseases, heart disorders, prevent osteoporosis, and more. 

Key features of DASH diet is to increase consumption of fresh fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy products.

Fruits and vegetables are important because of the low-caloric, high fiber and high-nutrient density, . Low-fat dairy products provide important calcium that is necessary to prevent osteoporosis. Other components of DASH include nuts, legumes (dried beans and peas), whole grains, low salt and reduce 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 limits salt to 2300 milligrams per day, 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. from revised Dash diet 2010

How is diet related to Chronic Dry Eyes and Autoimmune Diseases- Sjogren's, Rheumatoid Arthritis?

Links between Diet, Digestive Health, Dry Eyes and Stress


You are what you eat.  Does that sound familiar?

A healthy digestive system is essential to both physically and emotionally health.  Healthy digestive system starts with a healthy diet. 

Eyes are the second most physiologically active part of our body next to our brain.  Our eyes require a lot of nutrients derived from the food we eat and the nutrients that get absorbed through our digestive system to maintain healthy vision.
Research has indicated that Age Related Macular Degeneration is an eye disease due to starvation of the retina, where essentially the retina is being deprived of essential nutrients due to circulatory changes and poor absorption of the nutrients from the food we eat.  Most individuals with Macular Degeneration has high cholesterol levels before medical intervention.  This is supported by large amount of research showing that the risk of onset of Macular Degeneration can be dramatically reduced through diet, lifestyle and targeted supplementation.
Diet and nutrition can also be linked to a wide range of other eye conditions as well including glaucoma, cataracts and diabetic retinopathy.
Chronic stress causes a number of negative effects in the gut including:
  • decreased enzyme production to digest food
  • decreased oxygen delivery to the gut
  • decreased absorption of nutrients
  • reduced blood flow to the digestive tract, leading to decreased metabolism.
How to reduce stress-

Meditations in the form of yoga, walking, exercising can help reduce the effects of stress, function better with a clear head, and satisfaction in both personal and business relationships.

This article is an abstract from Cornea:October 2009 - Volume 28 - Issue 11 - pp S70-S74 for more information, http://www.ajo.com/article/S0002-9394%2812%2900105-5/abstract

Dry Eye Treatments- Home Remedies for Demodex- Eye Mites Can Cause Irritation.


Eyelash mites, also called "Demodex" can cause irritation.

Eyelash mites are tiny parasites that live in the hair follicles of the eyelash roots. While most people have mites naturally, some people are allergic to them.

 

Symptoms of Demodex are red eyes, swelling of the eyelid and flaky skin or rashes are common.  These symptoms are the same as Blepharitis. The infection that eyelash mites can cause is known as demodicosis or "Demodex". Treating the infection quickly and completely will help prevent future episodes.


Here is a home remedy to try
Things You'll Need
1.  No tear baby soap
2. Water
3. Washcloth
4. Tea tree oil
5. New make up
6. Clean sheets and pillow cases

Instructions
1.  Wash your face and eye area with a gentle no-tear baby soap. Dilute the baby soap with water to create a 50/50 solution. Gently scrub with a washcloth twice a day.

2.  Apply a drop of tea tree oil diluted with water (50:50) to each eyebrow, as well as a drop to each eyelash, because mites living in the brows can easily drop down into the eyelashes.

4. Wash sheets and pillowcases on a regular weekly basis.

Dry Eyes After Cataract Surgery- Prevention with TheraLife Eye.

 
Nearly (3) million Americans have cataract surgery each year. 

Cataract is a cloudy eye capsules that no longer lets light into the eyes thus affecting vision.  cataract is not always a condition for people who are seniors, it happens in people younger than 50 years old.  Research studies have shown that cataract surgery do result in dry eyes, even if the patient did not have dry eyes before the surgery.  But of course, dry eye is an aging phenomena which also goes hand in hand with having cataracts. 

Since majority of the cataracts occur in people who are over 65, this is also the group that is most likely to have dry eyes because of:
    1. Aging. – Dry eye is a common condition for people over 50.
    2. Cataract surgery punches a tiny whole through which the old lens is extracted and new lens put in its place.  This tiny hole may not heal over evenly after surgery, creating an uneven surface which causes friction every time you blink - thus resulting in inflammation and dry eyes.

Take Care of your eyes with TheraLife
Preoperative care

Get Your Cornea into the best condition before surgery with TheraLife Eye.

Before surgery, be sure to have your tear volume and tear viscosity tests done to assess your dry eye condition.  A reference point to refer back to after surgery.

If dry eyes are detected before surgery, the recommendation is to treat dry eyes  with TheraLife Eye and get the cornea into the best condition it can be to minimize dry eye outcome after surgery.


Post Operative Care:

After cataract surgery the signs and symptoms of dry eyes usually get worse. Following surgery, patients are given a number of topical drops, usually a steroid, antibiotic and an NSAID.  Prolonged use of postoperative medications may be one of the contributing factors of the patient's dry eye symptoms. It is best to stop or taper medications when they are no longer needed.


Use TheraLife Eye for both pre-operative and post operative care.

The benefits of TheraLife Eye-     Effectively relief dry eyes without the use of eye drops and restore cornea to the best health it can be before surgery.

Post-operatively prevent dry eyes and maintain cornea health through accelerated healing, reduce inflammation, and continue secretion of balanced sustainable tear.

Avoid the use of steroids and side effects.
