Dr Michael Lange uses Natural Dry Eye Treatments

Dr Michael Lange uses Natural Dry Eye Treatments

Dr Michael Lange has been using natural dry eye treatments for over 25 years successfully with his patients. He very rarely has to use any medications since the natural approach works so well.  The approach consists of  cleaning the lids, heating the lids, lubricating the eyes and nutrification of the meibomain glands.

Cleaning the lids is accomplished by using  a simple diluted solution of baby shampoo and lather up the lids once a day at bed time.  This is an inexpensive option for cleaning the lids however not the best option.  A better option for  cleaning and killing potential Demodex mites would be to use Cliradex foam or wipes  before bed.  Dr Lange’s first choice for proper lid hygiene is Cliradex.

Cliradex for blepharitis, if in doubt use Cliradex

Heating the lids can be accomplished with a warm wash cloth as a simple inexpensive option or using a Bruder Mask as a better option.  Heating of the lids will help open up the meibomian glands to secrete a healthy tear layer.

Lubricating, Dr Michael Lange likes two preservative free lubricating eye drops that both contain small amounts of hyluaranic acid.  Dr Lange likes Oasis tears Plus the best and his second choice for dry eye lubrication is Blink Preservative Free drops.


Nutrification of the meibomian glands is the final step in Natural dry eye treatment.  Dr Michael Lange has developed a concentrated Triglyceride form omega 3 fish oil called Fortifeye Super Omega. Dr Lange has done multiple omega index studies to help determine how much of this omega 3 a person needs to gain the health benefits.  In omega index studies utilizing Fortifeye Super Omega patients under 250 lbs  had an omega index between 9.2-11 while taking 1600 mg of Fortifeye Super Omega ( two capusles daily) .   A therapeutic heart healthy level on omega index is anything above an 8.

Fortifeye Super Omega a great way to help inflammation

When patients follow this natural dry eye treatment protocol a good percentage will respond with improved dry eye signs and symptoms.    go to to learn more about these items and /or purchase.

Paleo Simplified, because…what you eat matters


Dr Michael Lange preaches if you want to look good, feel good and be healthy you must eat right!!  When the proper diet is combined with exercise, sleep, hydration and a little sunshine you will be amazed at the positive transformations that can occur in the human body.  Dr Lange states ” I have seen amazing positive changes in ocular health and overall health when patients will actually follow some simple guidelines”  Dr Michael Lange recommends a modified form of a gluten-free Paleo diet for most of his patients. Most Americans are eating a diet that is calorie dense and nutrient deficient.  I want my patients to eat whole unprocessed foods that God put on the planet and not the overly processed fast foods that have become mainstream in today’s society.  Many of the mainstream foods we are consuming are filled with synthetic dyes, trans fats, chemicals, preservatives, pesticides, hormones, antibiotics , gmos, artificial sweeteners, added sugar …. just to mention a few of the toxins that are introduced into our bodies daily.   This extremely poor toxic diet is one reason we see so much disease in our society.

Dr Michael Lange has developed a diet that works quite well for loosing weight safely that is a modified gluten-free Paleo Diet.  This diet is great for getting each patient down to their ideal body weight then you can adjust the diet after your weight goals have been accomplished.  Click on this link to take you the The Lange Diet:

One problem with a diet  is the constant hunger that people on diets have and therefore they eat snacks during the day that are filled with empty calories of  excess sugar  and carbohydrates.  Dr Michael Lange is CEO of Paleo Simplified a company that researches and develops  Paleo bars and Paleo granola.   Their philosophy of  “what you eat matters”  is catching on all over the country.  Many people who are pro active in their health are searching for a healthy snack to eat in between meals , pre and post work out or just something healthy and nutritious when they are on the go.  Paleo Simplified energy bars and their Honey Nut Fruit Crunch are gluten-free, whole food, non gmo,soy free, no artificial ingredients and loaded with superfoods. Dr Lange has incorporated Paleo Simplified into The Lange Diet as one of the snack options daily .

Paleo Simplified  currently has 3 energy bars: nutty fruit  bliss, chocolate coconut almond crunch and pecan pie perfection.  Paleo Simplified also has a gluten-free, oat free granola called Honey nut fruit crunch.  These paleo bars and paleo granola can be purchased directly from
