15 Apr

Dr Michael Lange of the Lange Eye Institute in the Villages Florida has been involved in clinical and nutritional research for dry eyes since the 90s. In 2021 and 2022 he was involved in clinical research of a new generation pharmaceutical for dry eyes. Dr Lange is a Board-Certified Optometric Physicians as well as a Certified Nutrition Specialist and has one of the largest optometric dry eye centers in the country in The Villages Florida. The Villages Fl is the fastest growing population in the entire country at this time and this growth is fueled by people retiring to Florida. “The older you get the dryer you get ” states Dr Lange and therefore the Villages has one of the largest dry eye populations in the country. Dr Michael Lange likes to use a natural approach to support the dry eye conditions he sees. Dr Langes 4 step protocol for dry eye patient is

  1. clean the lids with Optase Tea Tree Lip wipes or gel at bedtime
  2. Heat the lids for 10 minutes 2-3 times a day with warm wash cloth or the optase moist heat mask
  3. Nutrify the eye especially the meibomian gland and lacrimal glands with Fortifeye Advanced Dry Eye Therapy supplement pak. ( Fortifeye Super Omega is an rTG form omega 3 fish oil that is one part of the advanced dry eye kit)
  4. lubricate the eye with Optase intense dry eye drops or Oasis Tears Plus drops.

Thiese four steps Dr Lange recommends to his patients helps a large percentage of patients with dry eye symptoms. The most important part to this four-step protocol is the Fortifeye Advanced Dry Eye Therapy kit because this will help your body decrease inflammation in the eye and entire body allowing for a healthier tear film. rtg form omega 3 fish oil decreases inflammation in the eye and entire body by decreasing the inflammatory cascade of arachidonic acid from turning into pro inflammatory PGE2 (series 2 prostaglandins) rtg omega 3 also promotes anti-inflammatory series 3 prostaglandins (PGE3). The GLA in the black currant seed oil helps to stimulate series 1 prostaglandins that are anti-inflammatory and the astaxanthin helps to mop up any of the rogue pro inflammatory cyclooxygenase mediators that turn into series 2 prostaglandin. These combinations seem to help enhance the tear quality, improve tear break up time, reduce corneal keratitis and decrease dry eye symptomology. Dr Lange preaches to his patients, his talk show listeners on “ask the dr”, at conferences to doctors, on social media about the power of proper nutrition. learn more about Dr Michael Lange and see many of his articles, watch or listen to his videos and pod casts at www.drmichaellange.com also you can learn more about the products discussed in this article and buy online at www.fortifeye.com
