Dr. Michael Lange optometrist and certified nutrition specialist says “see better today with lens of tomorrow”, Blutech lenses!
The new Blutech lens is a must for everyone at any age. It is extremely important to filter the harmful blue light that is emitted out doors from the sun and indoors from many forms of lighting, computers, I pads, cell phones etc… New science suggests that the blue light may be partially responsible for degeneration of the macula. This blue filtering lens is great for young and old. Perfect for the person that spends a lot of time on the computer. This will block much of the glare, increase contrast and protect the eye from the potential harmful blue light . Filtering the blue light at night while on the computer will also allow the pineal gland to do its job at secreting the necessary chemicals like serotonin and melatonin allowing you to get sleepy. Many that are on a computer for long hours at night have difficulty sleeping. the blue light tricks the brain in to thinking you are out doors in the sunlight and not to get tired. Many optometrists and ophthalmologists are recommending wearing blue filtering lenses after having cataract surgery to help prevent the macular degenerative changes that can occur secondarily to the blue light exposure to the retina after the human lens (cataract) has been removed. When the cataract is removed , the natural blue filtering properties of the human lens are also removed. This may predispose the patient to develop macular damage from this blue light exposure. I also think it is a good idea for very young children to wear the blue tech lens as well. Much of the damage to our eyes may be do to uv and blue light exposure as a child. Bottom line is everyone can benefit from these Blue tech lenses at any age. There are many blue blocking lenses on the market that alter colors and are darkly pigmented with either orange, yellow or amber/brown. Those are good at blocking and filtering the blue light. The blutech lens is however the first virtually clear lens that filters the blue light, so this lens is great for your every day pair of glasses and great for your computer and night-time lenses. Dr. Michael Lange recommends patients that are predisposed to macular degeneration should all wear the blu tech lens and also take Fortifeye complete plus or Fortifeye Complete macular Defense . Fortifeye Vitamins have over fifty nutrients in it formula that has been revised ten times in the last seven years based on ongoing clinical research. This combination of nutrients is being used by 1000s of patients and doctors all over the world. Dr. Lange recommends if you are on a computer more than two hours a day to use the blu tech lens combined with fortifeye focus once a day. Fortifeye Focus supplement is a combination of lutein, zeaxanthin and astaxanthin that has proven to improve focusing ability and reduce eye strain while working on computer. Come to any Lange Eye Care location throughout Florida to get a pair of the Blue Tech lenses. Blutech is the future of prevention here today.
