Author of “The Dry Eye Remedy” Discusses Dry Eye Disease

freeimage-4021153Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio Logic Aqua Research and host of the Sharon Kleyne Hour, recently interviewed Dr. Robert Latkany, M.D., about dry eye disease. Dr. Latkany is a New York eye doctor who devotes his entire medical practice to dry eye disease.

Mrs. Kleyne asked Dr. Latkany why he decided to focus his practice on dry eye.  Dr. Latkany replied that millions of people suffer from dry eye, and many people who do suffer from dry eye don’t even know that they do. According to Dr. Latkany, dry eye is also a common reason people see allergists and that many patients are surprised when told they have dry eye and it’s often misdiagnosed as an allergy or infection.

The symptoms of dry eye, according to Dr. Latkany, are intermittent blurred vision, itching and burning eyes, redness, irritation, drowsiness, anxiety and increased sensitivity to allergies. Dr. Latkany stated that over 100 prescription drugs can cause dry eye, including allergy, thyroid, blood pressure and anti-psychotic medications.

Dr. Latkany considers his mission to be to inform the public about dry eye’s rapid growth, symptoms, and the consequences of not taking preventive measures. Dr. Latkany emphasized that dry eye affects all age groups but is more common over age 40.

Dr. Latkany’s book, “The Dry Eye Remedy” can be found by going to, or any bookstore.

Nature’s Tears EyeMist is a 100% all-natural mist for dry eyes, and is manufactured by Bio Logic Aqua Research.
