Step by Step Dry Eye Nutrition by Michael Lange Optometrist and nutrition specialist with Lange Eye Care.

Here is a step by step  protocol developed by Dr. Michael Lange that will help the majority of dry eye patients if followed.

1. Follow an Organic , Paleo Gluten free diet.  This is an anti inflammatory diet that will help dry eye conditions.

2. Take Fortifeye Super Omega 2 times a day if under 240 lbs and 3-4 times a day if over 240 lbs.

3.  Drink half your body weight in ounces of spring water or good well water. Do not drink reverse osmosis or distilled water  due to high acidity and low mineral content. Drink 2 glasses of coconut water a day.

4.  Take one Fortifeye Focus gel cap.

5.  Take Fortifeye Complete Once Daily if weight is 160 or less, Take Fortifeye Complete Plus if weight is between 160-240, Take Fortifeye Complete macular Defense if weight is over 240 lbs.

6.  Use Cinnamon and curcumin/ turmeric as spices on foods.

7.  Hot compresses 3 times a day for 10 minutes while massaging the lids. My favorite is the bruder mask two to three times a day instead of hot compresses. Bruder mask is $25 and last 10 years.

8.  Use Oasis tears plus or blink preservative free in alternation with Retaine lubricating eye drops four to eight times a day depending on severity.

9.  Remember to blink plenty of times a day especially while working on the computer. Dry eye symptoms worsen when blink reflex is lessened.

10.  Turn off ceiling fan while sleeping at night or wear a sleep mask. Wear good wrap sunglasses while in the wind and sun like oakley, costa del mar, wiley x or mau jim.

11.  one last nutrient that can be added to the extreme dry eye cases is GLA from black currant seed oil at 140-160 mg a day.

12.  Proper lid hygiene is crucial for  dry eye treatment.  Scrub eye lashes well with a lid scrub foam (occusoft) 1-2 times a day , am and pm. If u have really inflamed crusty lid margins then I recommend using Clearidex lid scrub pads.

Michael Lange Optometrist and nutrition specialist says to follow the advise of your optometrist or ophthalmologist when it comes to dry eye treatment.  The information in the article is to be used as educational info and never replaces a comprehensive eye exam and dry eye workup.  There are prescription medications and procedures that can be done to help alleviate dry eye as well.  Dr. Michael Lange has  been using proper nutrition and natural approaches to help his patients since 1992 with considerable  success.  Go to Dr. Langes pinterest site on dry eye to learn more.

Michael Lange Optometrist states Blutech lens is important for everyone

FINAL_BLUTECH_PATIENT_BROCHURE

Dr. Michael Lange optometrist and certified nutrition specialist says “see better today with lens of tomorrow”, Blutech lenses!

The new Blutech lens is a must for everyone at any age. It is extremely important to filter the harmful blue light that is emitted out doors from the sun and indoors from many forms of lighting, computers, I pads, cell phones etc…  New science suggests that the blue light may be partially responsible for degeneration of the macula.  This blue filtering lens is great for young and old. Perfect for the person that spends a lot of time on the computer. This will block much of the glare, increase contrast and protect the eye from the potential harmful blue light .  Filtering the blue light at night while on the computer will also allow the pineal gland to do its job at secreting the necessary chemicals like serotonin and melatonin allowing you to get sleepy. Many that are on a computer for long hours at night have difficulty sleeping. the blue light tricks the brain in to thinking you are out doors in the sunlight and not to get tired.   Many optometrists and ophthalmologists are recommending wearing blue filtering lenses after having cataract surgery to help prevent the macular degenerative changes that can occur secondarily to the blue light exposure to the retina after the human  lens (cataract) has been removed.  When the cataract is removed , the natural blue filtering properties of the human lens are also removed.  This may predispose the patient to develop macular damage from this blue light exposure. I also think it is a good idea for very young children to wear the blue tech  lens as well. Much of the damage to our eyes may be do to uv and blue light exposure as a child. Bottom line is everyone can benefit from these Blue tech lenses at any age. There are many blue blocking lenses on the market that alter colors and are darkly pigmented with either orange, yellow or amber/brown.  Those are good at blocking and filtering the blue light.  The blutech lens is however the first virtually clear lens that filters the blue light, so this lens is great for your every day  pair of glasses and great for your computer and night-time lenses.  Dr. Michael Lange recommends patients that are predisposed to macular degeneration should all wear the blu tech lens and also take Fortifeye complete plus or Fortifeye Complete macular Defense . Fortifeye Vitamins have over fifty nutrients in it formula that has been revised ten times in the last seven years based on ongoing clinical research. This combination of nutrients is being used by 1000s of patients and doctors all over the world. Dr. Lange recommends if you are on a computer more than two hours a day to use the blu tech lens combined with fortifeye focus once a day. Fortifeye Focus supplement is a combination of lutein, zeaxanthin and astaxanthin that has proven to improve focusing ability and reduce eye strain while working on computer.    Come to any Lange Eye Care location throughout Florida to get a pair of the Blue Tech lenses.  Blutech is the future of prevention here today.

Michael Lange Optometrist  and founder of Lange Eye Care and Associates states “food is medicine”.    He discusses dietary changes, life style adjustments and proper supplements with his patients at any age.  His eye wellness centers have become quite popular because of this different approach.   I have seen  some amazing benefits in my patients once these  dietary changes have been started.  I have tried just about every diet combination available and have finally decided what works best.   Michael Lange Optometrist and Certified Nutrition Specialist  recommends an all organic, gluten-free paleo diet for his patients no matter what the age.   When you remove the toxic traditional pro inflammatory omega six diet and replace it with  an all organic, gluten-free paleo diet the body and visual system react in an extremely positive way.  Patients begin to have more energy, lose weight, sleep better, blood chemistries improve and vision and ocular health also start to improve.  Dr. Lange motivates his  patients to follow these guide lines and start to experience an improved quality of life.   Dr Lange is involved in ongoing nutritional research and travels the world in the quest for more knowledge  in the natural health world.   Michael Lange an Optometrist is one of five eye doctors that have become a certified Nutrition Specialist through the American College of Nutrition.  Dr. Michael Lange has hosted a syndicated talk show  called “Ask the Dr” almost daily since 1993.  This talk show can be heard on multiple FM and Am stations throughout the south and on I heart radio or over the internet.  The show is a live call in show that discusses the latest in nutrition for total body and good eye health.  He does practice what he preaches and loves to prepare  food for his family that is a modified version of the Paleo diet.  You can learn more about Dr. Lange and his nine Lange Eye Care locations at www.langeeyecare.com and www.drmichaellange.com  you can learn about the vitamin line he has researched and developed at www.fortifeye.com .  This is one link that has many of Dr. Langes nutritonal sites all under one site http://pinterest.com/drmichaellange/
