Michael Lange OD has been involved in the research and development of nutritional supplements for eye care for nearly 20 years he has followed all of the studies related to nutrition, DNA and Macular degeneration very closely. He has developed an entire line of genotype-directed supplements for macular degeneration under Fortifeye Vitamins name.

Dr. Langes most recent development is a zinc free antioxidant for macular degeneration patients in response to new study recently published. The newest studies suggest that a percentage of macular degeneration patients with specific genotypes may actually be harmed by taking zinc and some may benefit from taking zinc and antioxidants. The only way to determine whether zinc is good or bad is to have a genetic DNA test for macular degeneration. This is a simple in office DNA test that will determine what particular type of DNA a macular degeneration patient has and allow eye care providers to customize their nutritional regiment. Genotype-directed nutritional therapy could result in significantly improved future outcomes for many patients with macular degeneration. DNA testing should become the gold standard to help the eye care provider determine which supplement is best for the patient. Dr. Lange and other nutritional experts agree that no more than 40mg of zinc should be taken daily. Dr. Lange states this will only enhance patient care for the macular degeneration patient. Any doctors recommending nutritional therapies for their patients with ARMD should make an effort to have their DNA checked. This is a procedure covered by their insurance and medicare. Dr. Lange states “we have been seeing really good response to nutritional therapy for macular degeneration patients over the last 20 years now I expect we will see even better results”.

Fortifeye Vitamins has different formulas that can be recommended based on patients age, weight, disease entity and specific DNA. Eye Care providers all over the world are recommending Fortifeye.

View recent study here: CFH and ARMS2 Genetic Polymorphisms Predict Response to Antioxidants and Zinc in Patients with Age-related MacularDegeneration.

For maximum absorption, these vitamins should be taken in three divided doses with food. Fortifeye Zinc Free Macular Defense can be taken alone or in conjunction with Fortifeye Super Omega-3 and/or Fortifeye Focus. Fortifeye Vitamin formulas have helped thousands through out the world to maintain and even regain their independence through better vision and health. Fortifeye Zinc Free Macular Defense gives hope to many through proper nutrition providing support for healthy eyes and total body wellness.

Natural Dry Eye Treatment and Natural Meibomian Gland treatment by Michael Lange OD, CNS

Patients are looking for a natural treatment for dry eyes and meibomian gland dysfunction. I have worked with patients for over 20 years in the area of natural dry eye treatment with excellent results. Meibomian gland dysfunction is ultimately the reason the patient is symptomatic! When we clear up the meibomian glands then the lids become less red and swollen and the eyes become less dry. If both optometrists and ophthalmologists would take the time to educate their patients on these natural approaches to treating dry eyes we would have a much happier and healthier group of patients. However with huge cutbacks in medicare and very small reimbursements from HMOs doctors are seeing more patients and spending less time with each patients. The doctor will write a script for a drug and send you out the door. It takes time for the eye doctor to educate the patient on the natural dry eye treatment that is available. I have developed a simple quick 4 step article that will help both doctors and patients understand natural dry eye treatment and natural meibomian gland treatment . learn more at

Michael Lange OD talks about Natural treatment for meibomian gland dysfunction, blepharitis and dry eyes.  Most ODs and MDs are prescribing oral and topical antibiotics for meibomian gland dysfunction and blepharitis. Is this really necessary? Oral and even topical antibiotics have potential unwanted side effects especially if used often.  I have had tremendous success using a combination of  Natural treatments to help eliminate almost all signs and symptoms of meibomian gland dysfunction, blepharitis and dry eyes.  Patients appreciate the natural approach to helping them with their condition. If done properly this is extremely effective. Doctors will have to explain to the patients  these procedures in some detail to be effective against their meibomian gland dysfunction  and dry eyes.   If we clear the glands then the glands will secrete a healthy tear film and the dry eyes will go away.  All that is needed is a Brueder mask or hot compress of some type, Fortifeye Super Omega, Fortifeye Focus, a good unpreserved artificial tear  (oasis tears plus, retaine or Blinks) , hydration,  great lid hygiene and proper diet.  To get more detailed information of natural treatments for dry eye and meibomian gland dysfunction   go to this link

Michael Lange OD, CNS of Lange Eye Care in Ocala Florida has been in the research and development of supplements for eye diseases for the last ten years. Dr. Lange has recently developed the first zinc free eye vitamin for macular degeneration called Fortifeye Zinc Free Macular defense.  Dr. Lange states that eye doctors need to do a genetic test on their patients before recommending nutritional supplements for their macular degeneration.  Michael Lange OD states that the specific DNA of a person will help determine which antioxidants are beneficial and whether or not zinc is good for the eyes or bad?  Dr. Lange states that higher than 50% of the patients he runs DNA tests on that have macular degeneration are in the need of a zinc free vitamin!  Dr, Lange recommends anyone with Macular degeneration , make sure they have a genetic test done as soon as possible through their Optometrist or Ophthalmologist so they will know what supplemnts are best for their condition.  Fortifeye Vitamins has six different supplements that can be recommended based on weight, disease entity, age and genetic type.
