Natural Treatment for Meibomian Gland Dysfunction and Dry Eye by Michael Lange OD
Michael Lange OD develops a natural treatment for dry eyes and Meibomian gland dysfunction. He calls the kit Super Dry Eye Kit by Fortifeye Vitamins. Dry eye and Meibomian gland dysfunction become more frequent as we age. So in our aging population it is a big problem reports Michael Lange OD. Dr. Lange states many doctors are too frequently putting patients on expensive topical medications and oral medications that may cause secondary problems. A high percentage of these patients can be treated with an all natural approach. Dr. Michael Lange started Lange Eye Care and Associates in 1993. His practice has grown to ten locations due to his natural approach to eye disease. Lange Eye Care has patients that travel from all over the country to learn about natural ways of helping their visual system. Dr. Michael Lange and Lange Eye Care also incorporate the latest in surgical, medical and optical treatments. Dr. Lange states that making modifications to our patients current diet, lifestyles and supplement regiment only enhances what we do surgically or medically. Dry eye is the number one eye problem that can be treated with a natural approach. Dr Lange has been involved in nutritional dry eye treatment for over 20 years. He has found what works and what does not work. He has taken all of this experience and combined it into a simple cost-effective kit called Super Dry Eye Kit. The Super Dry Eye Kit combines Occusoft lid scrub foam, Fortifeye Super Omega, Fortifeye Focus, Oasis Tears Plus, Bruder Mask and GLA from Black Currant Seed Oil. When these are used together a much healthier tear film is secreted and dry eye symptoms drop significantly. Depending on the severity of the dry eye / Meibomian gland dysfunction will determine how long it takes to improve the condition. Most patients will have some improvement in 10 days with significant improvement in three months. The kit has to be used daily for three months to gain the full benefit. Most patients will also notice an improvement in skin health and many inflammatory conditions will respond favorably. It is always recommended that patients go to their local Optometrist or Ophthalmologist for proper diagnosis and treatment plan. to Order the new Super Dry Eye Kit go to http://www.fortifeye.com/products/dry-eye-kits-a-significant-savings-if-purchased-individually/ or call 866 503 9746.
Michael Lange OD of Lange Eye Care develops Genotype Directed Nutritional Supplements for Macular Degeneration.
Michael Lange OD founder of Lange Eye Care and Associates and Fortifeye
Vitamins develops the first Genotype Directed nutritional supplements for
Macular Degeneration. Dr. Michael Lange has been involved in the
research and development of nutritional supplements for the eye care industry
for close to 10 years. The newest studies now indicate that a relatively high
percentage of patients with specific DNA for macular degeneration may be harmed
by taking zinc supplements. These new studies also indicate a percent of
macular degeneration patients will benefit from supplemental zinc! Dr. Lange
states ” Doctors that are making nutritional supplement recommendations for
patients with macular degeneration should do a simple DNA test to see what
category these patients fall in and then make nutritional supplement
recommendations based on this DNA.” 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 is involved in Genetic testing and nutritional
counseling for macular degeneration.
Michael Lange OD, CNS discusses the power of astaxanthin for dry tired eyes and macular degeneration. Genotype directed nutritional supplementation is here!
Astaxanthin is a nutrient that is starting to gain popularity due to its amazing health benefits. I have been utilizing the health benefits of astaxanthin in clinical practice for over four years now with some incredible success. I have found that almost everyone that is started on Fortifeye Focus ( 6 mg of astaxanthin, 6 mg of lutein and 400 mcg of zeaxanthin) reports some sort of subjective improvement. Many of my patients will report improved focusing ability at near and reduction in eye fatigue and eye strain. many of my patients under 55 yo that were emetropic in the distance are now able to read up close or on the computer with out a spectacle correction. Many studies have proven that astaxanthin will improve accommodative ability in the eye. I am an example, at 52 yo I can see just about anything i need to up close with out readers. Everyone does not get the same results. I have found that doubling the dose for the first two weeks gets faster results and then tapering back to 6 mg a day thereafter. I have many patients with tired dry eyes that are benefiting significantly from the combination of Fortifeye super omega and Fortifeye Focus. This nutritional combination of astaxanthin and tg form omega 3 fish oil is great at helping decrease inflammation in the Meibomian glands and improve tear quality. The addition of astaxanthin to omega 3 fish oil improves the dry eye effects of fish oil alone and also helps to eliminate the tired eye symptoms many suffer with that have dry eyes. Most of society today is working too long on a computer that creates an enormous amount of dry tired eyes. The addition of 6 mg of astaxanthin to your daily diet may be beneficial to all computer users.
I also deal with a very large macular degeneration population and have patients travel from all over the country to learn more natural approaches to their macular disease. I have been so impressed with the health benefits of astaxanthin , specifically the antioxidant and anti inflammatory properties that I now recommend it to all our Macular degeneration patients. It makes since, if we can add a nutrient to our patients diet that may decrease oxidation and inflammation, why not?? New studies indicate astaxanthin improves circulation to the choroid and crosses the blood retinal barrier. I have had numerous patients with macular degeneration improve once we get them on the appropriate diet and the right supplements. I have seen many patients with inflammatory conditions in the eyes improve when we add astaxanthin. The combination of a good triglyceride form omega 3 fish oil ( Fortifeye Super Omega) and a good astaxanthin ( Fortifeye Focus) seems to be ideal at helping lower inflammation in the eye.
Macular degeneration patients that come to Lange Eye Care will all get a DNA test done to see what their risk of progression is. Then based on this DNA test we will often times run a spectracell blood test to look for any modifiable nutritional deficiencies and inflammatory markers. The combination of the DNA test and the spectracell will help us to develop a genotype directed nutritional plan for macular degeneration patients. This is an extremely customized diet and supplement regiment. Many of the patients that have a risk category 3 or higher I am recommending starting 6 mg of astaxanthin.
These patients will also be started on Fortifeye Complete Macular Defense or Fortifeye Zinc Free Macular Defense depending on their genotype. Genotype directed nutritional supplementation for macular degeneration is the most advanced and latest nutrient protocol available for our patients with macular degeneration. All doctors need to be utilizing the information gained from doing this DNA test if they are going to discuss nutrition for macular degeneration. Many more years of good vision may be added to the patient with ARMD through this new science of nutrition. I recommend everyone try to eat wild Alaskan Salmon frequently due to the high amounts of omega 3 and astaxanthin. Wild Alaskan Salmon is a power food for macular degeneration. Here is a very good video on astaxanthin http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQxAQf2_Iz0 You can learn more about Fortifeye Vitamins at www.fortifeye.com . Keep the faith!
