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



Dr Michael Lange and his new passion car racing

Dr Michael Lange grew up racing motocross from the age of 10.  In 1979 he was involved in a bad motocross accident in a Grand National Championship race and broke his back and leg in multiple places ending his competitive motocross career.  He stayed off the motocross track until 2000 when he got back into motocross until 2017 when he got out for good. Dr Lange said at age 55 I needed to find another extreme type sport that was safer than motocross.  Dr Lange decided on racing cars!!  He went to the Bondurant race school in Arizona for their Grand Prix race school for one week and then went back again in April for the Bondurant Advanced race school for a few more days.  Dr Lange was a select group of people in the world that was able to buy a very limited edition Dodge Viper ACR extreme VoodooII ( #26 of 31 made) .  This is the fastest production race car made today.  Dr Lange was able to get his SCCA full competition race car license after going to the Bondurant Race School in May 2017.  Dr Lange started tracking his car at many track events at Sebring International Raceways and Homestead/ Miami Speedway in June 2017.  In a 3 month period he worked his way up from Novice to intermediate and now he his in the Advanced class.  His lap times are now as fast as many top pros driving similar production cars. Dr Lange states he has been having a blast and has finally found a sport that produces the adrenalin rush of Motocross.  He will be competing at  many track events and races at Sebring, Homestead/ Miami ,  Road Atlanta, Virginia International Speedway, Barber Speedway, Daytona and Nola speedway during the rest of 2017 and beyond.

Paleo Bars , paleo energy bars and Paleo protein bars are excellent nutritional choices for everyone at any age.


The Paleo diet has rapidly become one of the most popular diets in America.  Paleo Bars , paleo energy bars and Paleo protein bars are also becoming quite popular among Paleo enthusiasts.  Paleo Simplified is a company run by doctors, nutrition experts and organic chefs that currently have some of the most popular paleo bars on the market.  Paleo Simplified  is in the process of developing a delicious fourth paleo bar that will target children as well as adults.  This new bar will use sunflower seed butter , organic dehydrated strawberries and just like all Paleo Simplified products will be gluten free, non gmo, organic and  delicious.  This new bar will be called “Nutty Buddy berry ”  and will have a peanut butter and jelly like taste.  Dr Michael Lange and The  Organic Chef  Al Rosas  are currently working on the recipe and won’t bring it to market until it is perfect. Dr Michael Lange has been a big fan of Paleo Simplified energy bars and Paleo protein bars for many years and now recommends them as the snack on The Lange Diet plan .  Paleo Simplified bars are very differently from the typical energy bars and protein bars on the market.  Most energy bars and protein bars are filled with synthetic nutrients, binders, fillers, dyes,  trans fats, artificial flavors  and many other hard to pronounce chemicals that may cause potential harm.   Paleo Simplified has a great team of professionals dedicated to helping the human body thru proper nutrition.  All of the Paleo Simplified products are now avavailable at fortifeye vitamins at
