Michael Lange OD dry eye treatment without drugs.
Posted by Dr Michael Lange in Uncategorized on July 4, 2014
Michael Lange OD has developed protocol for the treatment of dry eye that works quite well without the use of any prescription drugs. Dr Lange uses this protocol for all of his dry eye patients.
The Meibomian glands become blocked and the best way to keep them open so they can secrete the crucial outer lipid layer of tear film is to apply heat to the lids one to two times a day for ten minutes while gently massaging the lid margins. Using a warm wash cloth or Dr Lange’s choice is the Bruder Mask. Michael Lange OD also says the addition of a good triglyceride form omega 3 fish oil is an important step in keeping the Meibomian glands open. This omega 3 fish oil will reduce inflammation in the Meibomian glands and allow for a much healthier clearer tear film secretion. Dr Lange developed Fortifeye Super Omega that has an EPA of 860 and a DHA of 580 in two gel caps for the natural treatment of dry eyes. learn more at http://www.fortifeye.com
A good lubricating eye drop that is preservative free and contains hyluranic acid is Dr Langes choice. The two tear supplements Dr Lange uses mostly are Oasis Tears Plus and Blink tears. Many patients will need the addition of a special drop called Retaine to help replenish the depleted lipid layer until the Meibomian glands start to function properly.
Good lid hygiene is also an important step in the natural treatment of dry eyes. Using a lid scrub like occusoft or cliradex will help to reduce the bacterial flora that hangs out on the lids. Careful attention must be taken when using the lid scrub application to meticulously clean all the debris from the lashes and lid margins. Once the lids are completely cleaned the Meibomian glands will function much better and dry eye symptoms will be greatly reduced.
Michael Lange OD states if these simple steps discussed in the above paragraphs are followed a large percent of dry eye symptoms will go away. most of the things mentioned in the article can be purchased at http://www.fortifeye.com or at any Lange Eye Care location or your local eye doctor.

Posted by Dr Michael Lange in Uncategorized on October 11, 2013
Michael Lange OD, talk show host, optometrist and nutrition specialist developes DNA directed nutritional supplements for macular degeneration. Michael Lange OD, CNS has combined all of the latest research into the new line of genotype directed nutritional supplements for macular degeneration by Fortifeye Vitamins. The newest formula is called Zinc Free Macular Defense. The latest research indicates a relatively high percentage of patients with DNA for macular degeneration may progress more rapidly while taking zinc. These new studies also indicate a percent of macular degeneration patients will benefit from supplemental zinc! Dr. Michael Lange states ” Doctors that are making nutritional supplement recommendations for patients with macular degeneration should do a simple in office DNA test to see what category these patients fall in and then make sound nutritional supplement recommendations based on the patients genotype.” Michael Lange OD has developed six different levels of supplements for the macular degeneration patients based on age, weight, level of disease and DNA. The newest formula is called Fortifeye Zinc Free Macular Defense and will be available end of October. Dr Lange has 9 locations throughout Florida that are involved in Genetic testing and nutritional counseling for macular degeneration. learn more about DNA directed vitamins for macular degeneration at http://www.fortifeye.com . go to Dr. Langes blog at http://www.drmichaellange.com
Michael Lange OD develops genotype-directed nutritional therapy for macular degeneration
Posted by Dr Michael Lange in Uncategorized on September 30, 2013
Michael Lange OD, CNS has developed genotype-directed nutritional therapy for macular degeneration patients.
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. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23972322
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
Posted by Dr Michael Lange in Uncategorized on September 28, 2013
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 http://www.fortifeye.com

Michael Lange OD talks about Natural Treatment for meibomian gland dysfunction and dry eyes.
Posted by Dr Michael Lange in Uncategorized on September 21, 2013
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.

Michael Lange OD on omega 3 and prostate cancer risk.
Posted by Dr Michael Lange in Uncategorized on July 21, 2013
Michael Lange OD is the founder of Lange Eye Care and Associates and Fortifeye Vitamins. Michael Lange OD has been involved in omega 3 research for many years and has 1000s of patients that have been on omega 3 for many years. Dr. Lange says the recent study called the SELECT study , a study that was designed to look at selenium and vitamin e in prostate cancer has been re evaluated and the conclusions are not based on anything legitimate. The media has recently condemmed the use of omega 3 fish oil because this study seems to suggest that omega 3 causes prostate cancer. Dr. Michael Lange states this is ridiculous and reckless! The study doesnt even know if the study participants were taking omega 3 or eating fish! in this study the prostate cancer patients had a .2% higher omega 3 than the control group and they concluded this is a risk for prostate cancer?? There is no cause and effect here at all! These prostate cancer patients had higher omega 3 than the control group because they have been told by their oncologist, urologist, cardiologist, gp and optometrist to take fish oil! This is simple, no correlation at all. Good studies prove that people that consume more omega 3 are less likely to have prostate cancer ! If this ridiculous theory was correct then the groups of people that consume a lot of fish would have super high levels of prostate cancer, but this is just the opposite they have less prostate cancer. So , bottom line is DONT STOP TAKING YOUR FISH OIL per Dr. Michael Lange! Omega 3 has numerous postive health benefits. Learn more about a super purified triglyceride form of omega 3 called Fortifeye Super Omega at http://www.fortifeye.com
Please discuss this with your physician before stopping your omega 3!!
