Sjogren's Treatment & Diagnosis, What Your Eye Doctors Should Know.


Sjogren's Treatments & Diagnosis- What the Eye Doctors Should Know.


Diagnosis of Sjogren's disease can be ambiguous and difficult.  It is helpful if the patient goes into the doctor's offices know some of the basic tests that are available to accurately diagnose this condition. which is the objective of this blog post.

Sjogren syndrome is one of the most common rheumatological diseases. Primary symptoms are dry eye, dry mouth.  

On average, it takes 7 years to diagnose Sjogrens Disease

Sjogrens is a chronic, slowly progressive autoimmune disease that affects the  moisture producing glands- eyes, mouth, lungs, vaginal areas.  Sjogrens is a clinical condition of aqueous tear deficiency combined with dry mouth. The syndrome is classified as primary Sjogrens in people without an another autoimmune disease, and secondary Sjogrens in people who have a confirmed autoimmune disease such as  rheumatoid arthritis, thyroiditis, Raynaud’s, Lupus, and more.  It affects primarily females, sometimes males of all age and races.

According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), between 1 and 4 million people in the United States have Sjogrens.

Although the hallmark symptoms are dry eyes and dry mouth, Sjogrens may also cause dysfunction of other organs such as the kidneys, gastrointestinal system, blood vessels, lungs, liver, pancreas, and the central nervous system. Patients may also experience extreme fatigue and joint pain and have a higher risk of developing lymphoma.


Diagnosis

The following tests are commonly used to determine the presence of Sjogrens in addition to the person's report of symptoms and health history.

Common blood tests include:

• Complete blood cell count often shows anemia.
• Serum erythrocyte sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein are indicators of inflammation and are frequently elevated in patients with Sjogrens.
• Serum immunoglobulins are antibodies are usually elevated in Sjogrens.
• Serum antinuclear antibody is elevated in approximately 90% of patients with Sjogrens and other immune diseases.
• Serum rheumatoid factor is present in about 60% of patients with Sjogrens, as well as with RA.
• Serum Sjögren antibodies (Ro/SS-A and La/SS-B) are more specific for SS but can also be detected in people with other autoimmune diseases,  Having a negative serology does not mean one do not have the disorder.
Lip biopsy is the best single test to establish a diagnosis of Sjogren syndrome. While this is the most definitive test, performing it is not absolutely necessary from a clinical standpoint. Patients with Sjogren syndrome are essentially treated symptomatically and observed for the development of other rheumatic disorders or lymphoma. This can be initiated without performing a biopsy. If the diagnosis is in doubt or if a definitive diagnosis is needed, then this is the best test.

Management of Sjogrens Syndrome

Goals of ophthalmic management of Sjogren syndrome are: to relieve symptoms, to promote healing of the ocular surface, and to prevent complications such as persistent corneal ulcers.

The treatment of dry eyes depends on the severity of eye dryness, which is graded according to degree of symptoms, conjunctival injection and staining, corneal damage, tear quality, and lid involvement.

Drugs often prescribed for Sjogren’s patients include;

1. Immunosuppressive drugs- e.g. Plaquenil, methotrexate – these drugs often have side effects that affect vital body organs such as liver, kidney, retina, and more.
2.  Dry mouth  –  drugs such Salagen, Evoxac to stimulate salivary gland function.
3.  Dry Eye- traditional modalities include eye drops, eye gels, and prescription eye drop.  Often dry eye symptoms persists.  Learn more about TheraLife Autoimmune Dry Eye formula below.
4.  Dental care is important as those affected are prone to cavities.

Conclusion

Sjogrens can damage vital organs of the body with symptoms that may remain stable, worsen, or go into remission. Some people may experience only the mild symptoms of dry eyes and mouth, while others go through cycles of good health followed by severe disease. Many patients are able to treat problems symptomatically. Others are forced to cope with blurred vision, constant eye discomfort, recurrent mouth infections, swollen parotid glands, hoarseness, and difficulty in swallowing and eating. Debilitating fatigue and joint pain can seriously impair quality of life.

New Treatments for Watery Dry Eyes

New Treatments for Watery Dry Eyes

Watery Dry Eye Story - This is what we hear

"I have watering eyes - tears flowing down my cheeks. My doctor diagnosed it as dry eyes, prescribes all kinds of eye drops – they don’t help. What is going on?"

Symptoms of Watery Dry Eyes


The symptoms of watering eyes can be tearing, dry, burning, sandy gritty, red, and sensitive to light.  Yes, you have all kinds of tears running down your face, but your eye doctor can tell by staining that you have dry eyes.

About 50% of the cases, watering eyes are cause by dry eyes.
Watery eyes occur when there is too much tear production or poor drainage of the tear duct . The causes for Watery Eyes often include:
  • Clogged meibomian glands- located on the upper and lower eye lids. Your doctor may chose to use laser (LipiFlow) or probes to unclog them.  Meibomian gland secrete lubricants to thicken tears. Tear not thick causes evaporative dry eyes.
  • Blepharitis- inflammation of the eye lid. Read other blog posting on blepharitis at this site.
  • Allergies and hay fever
  • Conjunctivitis – pink eye
  • Chronic sinusitis
  • Radiation therapy.
  • Medications

Why you have watering eyes?

One of the major causes of over tear production is Dry Eye Syndrome. Since you may have had dry eyes for a long time, left untreated, your brain started to secrete reflux tears, the type of tears you cry with which is of poor quality. 

Dry Eye causes the eyes to become irritable; inflamed which stimulates the body to produce “Reflex Tears” which is of poor quality. Eye drops adds more fluid to wash away the lubricant that your eyes produce naturally to make the eyes even drier.

How is Dry Eye Syndrome diagnosed?

One of the main tests for tearing is to check whether the eyes are too dry. There are 3 key tests your eye doctors do to test for dry eyes:

1. Fluorescent stains – to observe condition of your cornea.

2. Shirmer’s Test or Zone Quick t- measure the amount of tears.  In case of watering eyes, this cannot be used.

3. Tear Viscosity – using a fluorescent dye and a stop watch to see how fast your tear disperse- an indication of how thick your tears are to prevent evaporation.  This test again cannot be used in watering eyes.

If you doctor has already diagnosed you with chronic dry eyes, then you need to treat the dry eyes first before over tearing will stop.

How Can TheraLife Help?

TheraLife offers a chronic dry eye solution that treats from inside out. TheraLife Eye stimulates your own tear secretion glands to secrete balanced and thick tears to relief chronic dry eye. Watery eyes due to dry eye is harder to treat than chronic dry eye.  TheraLife Eye will treat the dry eyes first, then your brain will stop crying.

Most effective approach - TheraLife Eye + Fish Oil + Hot Compress (twice a day, 10 minutes each time) + daily eye lid cleaning. 

Just so you have the correct expectations - it takes 3 months to stop your eyes from crying.  You have already suffered enough- drops has not worked so far.  Be patient, you will stop crying.  This is our guarantee.

Can Stress Cause Dry Eyes? TheraLife Can Help

Can Stress Cause Dry Eyes?  TheraLife Can Help


Workplace stress can cause changes in your body, your emotions , and induce chronic dry eyes. On the other hand, if you already have dry eyes, dry eye symptoms become worse when you are stressed.

Dry Eye Symptoms include but not limited to

  • Dry Eyes
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue – feeling tired
  • Stiff Neck and Shoulder Pain
  • Back Pain
  • Sweaty Palms and Feet
  • Upset stomach
  • Depression

Chronic Dry Eye and Stress

Chronic stress can be debilitation.  When 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.

Managing Eyelid Inflammation (Blepharitis) in Doctor's Offices.






Managing EyeLid Inflammation (Blepharitis) in Doctor's Offices.


This is an exert from "Optometric Management- by Dr. David Devries, May 2017

Dr, Devries is a praticing optometrist who wrote this article about how he manages eyelid inflammation in his dry eye practice.  


Meibography combined with diagnostic expression


Meibomian Gland Dysfunction - a major cause of dry eyes must be addressed in people with dry eyes.  Since it contributes significantly to evaporative dry eyes, leading cause of chronic dry eye syndrome.  . Diagnosis is the key and the most effective tool that I have seen, which I utilize within the office.is meibography ( image of meibomian glands) combined with diagnostic expression.

Expressing by lightly pressing on the meibomian glands ( located on the lower eye lids) allows the eye doctor to easily determine if the meibum is clear and “baby oil like.” Turbid, thickened meibum can be explained to a patient but being able to also image the meibomian glands is extremely usefull. Once a patient sees what their meibomian glands look like compared to normal glands, there seems to be a much greater urgency to receive treatment. 


Types of Meibography Equipement


There are multiple units available to perform meibography (LipiView II, LipiScan, Oculus Keratograph 4, Topcon, Meibox). Meibography not only helps patients realize the importance of compliance in their treatment but it also helps drive more advanced procedures.

1. Hot Compress

Hot compress is vital in treating MGD. A hot wash cloth is just not good enough to melt the meibomian clogging.  Having products available in the practice will tremendously help in the compliance aspect of treatment.

2. Debridement

As a result of meibography - which looks at the health of the meibomian glands, we are now doing more advanced lid procedures with patients. A frequent procedure I perform is the cleaning of the biofilm from the lid margins. Microblepharoexfoliation (BlephEx) is an in-office procedure that takes about 5 minutes to perform. Patients are very willing to have this procedure performed and the vast majority recognize improvements within a very short period of time.
 

3.  IPL and LipiFlow


We are also performing more vectored thermal lid pulsation (LipiFlow) as well as Intense Pulse Light (IPL) treatment on the people with  MGD with ocular rosacea. The basis of improvement in IPL is believed to be the photocoagulation of fragile telangiectasia that leak pro-inflammatory agents. Inflammation leads to a thickening of the meibum and eventual obstruction of the glands. Dermatology patients having cosmetic rosacea treatment with IPL recognize improvement in their dry eye after multiple treatments. This has led to the increasing utilization of IPL within eye care.


Conclusion


Seeing is believing and meibography has provided the necessary visualization for my patients to be willing to have not only baseline treatment but advanced procedures as well.

Treatments & Causes for Watery Eyes- Aging Eyes


Treatments & Causes for Watery Eyes - Aging Eyes.


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 can TheraLife Eye Help?


Your eyes are watery because you had dry eyes for a long time.  Unfortunately, your crying tears is of poor quality, washing your eyes clean of lubricates that thicken the tears.

TheraLife Eye works by restoring normal cell functions to tear secretion glands and increase normal tear production to relief dry eyes.  It is the only formula that can stop tear over production. It takes 3 months to stop watery dry eyes.

How I Found Dry Eye Cure after LASIK with Theralife

How I Found Dry Eye Cure after LASIK with TheraLife


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 contacts. 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 my daily life was affected.  The eye doctor at the lasik center prescribed a prescription eye drop and sent me on my way.  No help.  I began seeing an opthamologist who diagnosed me with chronic blepharitis and added expensive antibiotic drops, which I used for ten days each month along with a prescription eye drop twice a day.  No help.

I found TheraLife eye online and got my life back.  I took 8 capsules per day as recommended and now I am down to two pills a day and pop a couple more when I travel to low humidity areas or just when my eyes feel uncomfortable. 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 prescription eye drop until her insurance no longer covered it. She also is happy with the results. It seems expensive at first when the dosage is high, but if you can eventually lower the daily number of pills like I did, it seems very economical for the great results you might get."

How to Manage Stress and Depression Caused by Dry Eyes?



How to Manage Stress and Depression Caused by Dry Eyes?

What is chronic dry eyes?

Chronic dry eye is a condition where dry eye symptoms are severe and recurring.  These symptoms include eye pain, blurry vision, foreign body sensation, light sensitivity, and more. These symptoms over a long period of time can cause stress and depression.  What we hear often is -" my life is now revolved around my dry eyes every day."

What is Stress and Depression?  

You're not the only one who feels sad or worried at times. It's normal. Living in anxious times provides us with plenty of reasons to worry about our families, our country, our basic health and our safety.

It's perfectly natural for you to respond to the ups and downs we all experience with elation or fear.

It's normal and expected for you to feel grief at the loss of a loved one, or a job or a precious possession.

It's common, and occasionally even helpful, for you to react to life's stresses, challenges and dangers with anxiety.
  
  • What's NOT perfectly natural is when those feelings persist long after the event or condition that triggered them.
  • What's NOT normal and expected is when those feelings seem to come at you from nowhere, appearing even in the absence of obvious external triggers.
  • What's certainly NOT helpful is feeling the weight of your emotions so heavily that it interferes with sleep, prevents you from performing daily activities or arouses concern in the people who care about you.
   
  In its milder forms, depression or anxiety can make it difficult to even get yourself out of bed each morning and to go through the motions of your daily activities. Fatigue, inertia, feelings of sadness and recurring fears can hover like a rain cloud over your life.

In their more severe forms, depression or an anxiety disorder can immobilize you, sabotage your relationships, trigger feelings of helplessness and self-destructive behavior, and perhaps even turn your thoughts to suicide.
  
  
You DON'T have to suffer this way
  
  With Theralife Eye, you can get total dry eye relief from inside out.  It is a patented  formula that is natural, safe, and effective.

Best Treatment for Post LASIK Dry Eye That Works

Best Treatment for Post LASIK Dry Eye That Works

What is LASIK?

Lasik surgery can offer advantages of better vision, however, it can also cause chronic dry eyes due to the cornea changes and nerve damage.  Read my personal story on how I found relief in one week.

My Personal Story


"I had lasik surgery about 4 years ago. I was told a few weeks after the surgery that I would have dry eyes for the rest of my life and that I would have to use eyes drops every hour of the day. I tried virtually every kind of eye drop available on the market. I checked a lasik surgery forum to make myself feel better since there are others with worse problems than mine. However, having dry eyes that are continually limiting one's ability to see comfortably is very difficult.

After one year, when it became clear to me that my eyes had completed healing as much as they could post-Lasik, I started searching the Internet for solutions to dry eyes and found Theralife. The testimonials looked promising but they did not mention helping post- lasik dry eye problems. In desperation, I called Theralife. Angela was very encouraging. I explained that I was one year post-Lasik and that my eyes were still very dry. She said that Theralife Eye should help but that it may take about 3 months for me to get results. I was encouraged that she thought it would help even post-Lasik patients.

I received my first order of Theralife Eye and followed the enclosed instructions. To my pleasant surprise I noticed relief within a week. Two weeks later, it was even better. Theralife Eye, according to their brochure, builds in your system over time and continues to improve your tear quality and tear production over time (2 to 3 months?) I continued to take Theralife Eye and after about 3 months, my eyes felt very comfortable. I have been taking Theralife Eye daily ever since. When I forget once in a while, my eyes still feel okay. I have been taking Theralife Eye for about 3 years now.
Thank you so much for making this wonderful product. I am able to live a normal life and have comfortable eyes because of your product."

Theralife Autoimmune - Dry Eye Treatment for Sjogren's


TheraLife Autoimmune- Dry Eye Treatment for Sjogren's

What is Sjogren's Syndrome

Sjogren’s syndrome is a particular form of autoimmune disease where one’s body defense mechanism (immune system) attacks one’s own tissue or organs. In the case of Sjogren’s syndrome, it attaches the organs that produce moisture (mucous membranes). The most common symptoms are dry eye and  dry mouth. It can also affect other organs such as throat, lungs, kidney, liver, pancreas, central nervous system, gastrointestinal systems, joints, and blood vessels.

Other autoimmune diseases can also result in chronic dry eye including Rheumatoid Arthritis, LupusGrave’s Disease, Crohn’s Disease, and Fibromyalgia. Diagnosis for Sjorgren’s syndrome can be difficult due to similarities of disease symptoms.

Sjogren's and Dry Eyes


For many, Sjogren’s syndrome related dry eye often results in eye ulcers, corneal abrasion, extreme fatigue and a great deal of pain. Some people with Sjögren's syndrome also have other autoimmune disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, systemic sclerosis, vasculitis, mixed connective tissue disease, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, primary biliary cirrhosis, and chronic autoimmune hepatitis.. It is a debilitating disease for as many as 4 million Americans. Most Sjorgren’s patients are women.

Conventional Sjogren's Treatments


Conventional therapy for Sjorgren’s chronic dry eye often includes eye drops – which make dry eye worse. Prescription drugs often include steroids which cannot be used continuously over long periods of time due to its toxic effects to liver and kidney.

How TheraLife Eye Autoimmune Formula Works

TheraLife Autoimmune Formula is a natural way to provide relief for both chronic dry eye, dry mouth and Sjorgren’s Syndrome. It works by:

1. Intracellular stimulation of tear glands (mybomian, lacrimal) to promote one’s glands to secret its own tears naturally and overcome issues with poor micro-circulation and membrane permeability. This is the key factor in Chronic Dry Eye Syndrome.

2. Natural ingredients that act as an immune suppressant (immune modulator)

3. Improve performance, endurance and energy levels.


4. No side effects of prescription drugs


5. Provides continuous daily support.

Managing Allergies and Dry Eye Treatments

Managing Allergies and Dry Eye Treatments

More than 50 million Americans suffer from allergy, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, with at least 30% of those having eye-related symptoms
Typical symptoms of allergy is runny nose and congestion, especially during peak pollen/hay fever season.

Eye involvement of the allergy-reacting conjunctiva will often have varying degrees of papillary reaction (nipple-like structure), mucous discharge and red eyes.  This is also relative to the papillary reaction driven by the sheer force of the lid on contact lenses.     The initial onset of the allergy creates the mast cell-driven inflammatory process that leads to the eventual symptoms.  Advise is to take medications prior to an attack.

Dry eye symptoms results in stinging, burning, red, irritated eyes with blurry vision.  Getting the proper dry eye treatment is very important during allergy season.  

Recommendation - Treat allergies and dry eyes at the same time.

For people with dry eyes, symptoms often concur in people with allergy.  TheraLife Eye has ingredients that treats mild to moderate allergy, especially as it relates to the eye, TheraLife Eye can treat dry eyes and allergies at the same time.  Therefore, take TheraLife Eye when you know the allergy season is coming up.

Facts on treating dry eyes and allergies


Regarding therapy for ocular allergy, you should be aware of the following:

► Response time. Certain drops have been shown to reduce the itch response quickly.

► Dosage. For patients with an on-the-go lifestyle, dosage that requires twice or three times a day may not be the optimal choice. Use mast cell-stabilizing antihistamines – e.g.Zyrtek or Claritin which are less drying for your eyes.

► All drops are not indicated for use with contact lenses.

► Pediatric use. Allergies are often times seen in younger patients, and they may only present with ocular symptoms. Knowing that you are prescribing a medication that is approved for use in pediatric patients as young as age two gives you peace of mind.
