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.
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.
When patients follow this natural dry eye treatment protocol a good percentage will respond with improved dry eye signs and symptoms. go to www.fortifeye.com to learn more about these items and /or purchase.
Dr Michael Lange started Lange Eye Care and Associates on March 15 1993 in Ocala Florida. Dr Lange states “I was at the right place at the right time”. Right out of school he did a demographic study and found that Marion County was the fastest growing geriatric community in the country in 1990 and was under served in the eye care area. Dr Lange worked 18 hrs a day 7 days a week for the first 20 years building Lange Eye Care and Associates. He opened 14 Lange Eye Care locations in Gainesville, University of Florida, Panama City, Williston, Inverness, Citrus Hills, West Ocala, Ocala, Downtown Ocala, Summerfield, The Villages, Tampa and 2 locations in Clearwater. His syndicated radio show, ” ask the dr” was the spark that ignited his fast expansion. He has been hosting this radio show on multiple radio networks and live video streaming around the world non stop since April 1993.
In April of 2016 Dr Michael Lange decided to sell all of his Lange Eye Care locations to one large corporation and retain ownership of his flagship eye care center The Lange Eye Institute in The Villages Florida.

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.

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.

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 www.paleosimplified.com
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.

Dr Michael Lange discusses how the new Fortifeye Focus may benefit everyone.
Ever since the introduction of computers, tablets, smart phones and led lighting we have seen a tremendous surge in patients complaining of eyes that feel wiped out, fatigued, tired and dry. Clinically we are also seeing macula disease at much earlier ages. This is not a coincidence, it may be related to the prolonged periods of time we are being exposed to the high intensity visible spectrum or blue light in our indoor environment. This blue light becomes cumulative over time and may cause potential damage to the eyes and entire body. This combination is creating a syndrome called computer vision syndrome and also exposing the macula to damaging blue light. Is there anything u can do short of living in a tent with no electricity? Yes there are two things I recommend to all of my patients these days to help protect them from the damaging man-made blue light that we come in contact with daily.
- Wear a good pair of glasses that have a blue light filtering monomer in the lens. I recommend a clear lens called Blue Light Defense or a lens coming out soon called Blue Light Shield. These lenses are totally clear and come in prescription or non prescription. learn more at www.bluelightdefense.com
- Take a supplement called Fortifeye Focus once daily.
Fortifeye Focus is a small red and black soft gel that has three carotenoids lutein, zeaxanthin and astaxanthin. This soft gel is made from fish gelatin and contains non gmo olive oil to help with the absorption of the 3 carotenoids. There are numerous studies that have been published proving the ocular health and total health benefits of lutein, zeaxanthin isomers and astaxanthin. Fortifeye Focus is the first in the industry to use the combination of lutein, zeaxantin isomers and astaxanthin in therapeutic dosage in a fish gelatin. Doctors all over the world are recommending this supplement to their patients.
Fortifeye Focus is now using a 5:1 ratio of lutein and zeaxanthin isomers that have been extensively studied. Lutein combined with both zeaxanthin isomers (RR-and RS(meso)-zeaxanthin) have been utilized in this new formula. Dr Michael Lange and Fortifeye Vitamins decided to switch the form of Lutein and zeaxanthin they were using in their Focus supplement to Lutemax 20/20 and award-winning carotenoid ratio made by Omni Actives. The switch to this new ratio came as a result of the recent LAMA studies. LAMA I is complete and LAMA II near completion at this time. These studies are the first to show the positive benefits of supplementing with all 3 macular carotenoids lutein, RR- and RS- zeaxanthin at the exact ratios being used by Fortifeye Focus. These studies support these positive benefits on visual performance and brain functioning. Supplementing with these levels of carotenoids increased MPOD (macular pigment optical density) rapidly. The increased MPOD helps to protect the macular from blue light damage and oxidative stress which may reduce the risk of macular degeneration. Pending and current ongoing studies may also show a link with improved sleep, improved skin health ,improve psychological well-being and lower cortisol levels with the exact ratios being used in Fortifeye Focus. “When combining these carotenoids with astaxanthin a synergy seems to occur that benefits the patients much more than when either is used individually” states Dr Lange.
Astaxanthin has been used in this formula since its development over five years ago. Astaxanthin has numerous ocular and over all health benefits that have been studied extensively at 6mg. Astaxanthin is one of the most potent anti oxidants and anti inflammatory nutrients known to man. This carotenoid improves blood flow to the eye and brain also crossing the blood brain and blood retinal barrier making it the perfect nutrient to use in combination with Lutein and Zeaxanthin for support of the brain and the eye. Numerous studies indicate astaxanthin improves accommodative ability of the eye reducing eye strain associated with near point stress. This super carotenoid helps to absorb the harmful UV light protecting the skin from the harmful effects of the sun. Patients often times report less wrinkles in their face after supplementing with 6 mg of astaxanthin for 3 months. Studies indicate astaxanthin will lower inflammatory markers in the blood along with lowering the harmful cholesterol. Many sports related studies are proving that astaxanthin improves muscle recovery and endurance. Patients on a daily basis report many positive eye and overall health benefits after taking Fortifeye Focus for a few months. Some report positive benefits in as short as one week after supplementing daily.
Dr Michael Lange and Fortifeye Vitamins are continuously involved in ongoing research to enhance the Fortifeye line of supplements . Dr Lange sees the effect life style changes, dietary modifications and proper supplementation can make on patients ocular and overall health daily in clinical practice. Fortifeye Focus is available at many eye care providers through out the world that carry Fortifeye Vitamins or you can order at http://www.fortifeye.com or call 866 503 9746

Dr Michael Lange CEO of The Lange Eye Institute and Fortifeye Vitamins has been discussing proper nutrition to help his patients since 1992. He has been involved in research and development of the entire Fortifeye Vitamin line. Fortifeye Vitamins is being recommended by eye doctors from all over the world and 1000s of people are currently taking these supplements. After many years of research and numerous intracellular blood evaluations Dr Lange has determined that a good percentage of his patients are deficient in the master antioxidant in the body called Glutathione. One of the best ways to stimulate Glutathione is to consume whey protein. Dr Lange became frustrated with the whey proteins that are on the market because most are filled with artificial binders, fillers, sweeteners and nutrients. Many of these proteins have been derived from gmo grain fed cows that can further enhance potential toxicities in the protein and alter the natural omega 3 to omega 6 ratio. Many of the otc protein powders have also been further denatured in the processing of the protein decreasing the bio availability.
Dr Michael Lange also concluded that the vast majority of patients he would see were relatively deficient in at least one of their meals in the proper amount of protein. Many people are not consuming good quality protein especially at their most important meal , Breakfast!
Dr Lange decided to develop Fortifeye Super Protein. This is a protein that comes from grass-fed pasture raised A2 New Zealand cows that are not fed any hormones or antibiotics. Dr Lange decided to use a Kosher non denatured whey protein concentrate since this is the least processed form of whey protein containing the highest levels of naturally occurring immunoglobulins that have not been denatured by high heat. This protein is free of Casein protein. Whey Protein has the highest Bio-Availabillity index of all proteins. Non denatured Grass fed whey protein concentrate will improve the immune system by increasing omega 3, CLA and Glutathione . read more : www.newzealandwheyproteinconcentrate.com
Fortifeye Super Protein will be great in a smoothie first thing in the am to start the day. This protein will also be great as a pre workout and post recovery protein drink.
Consuming a whey protein concentrate daily is one more step in the right direction of anti aging. Mix with Fortifeye Organic Blue Green Superfood and you have a complete meal. Add one of the new Fortifeye Focus to get the additional benefits of lutein, zeaxanthin and astaxanthin. This protein will be available by mid November 2015 . at www.fortifeye.com .
