For many people, dry eye is a condition that they deal with on a daily basis and is something they unfortunately have just accepted. As a chronic, progressive condition, people do not realize that it is something that can be easily managed through a few different steps. Dr. Michael Lange, an Optometrist and expert in natural approaches to dry eye, believes that patients should be able to have comfort along with great vision. Dr. Michael Lange took the time to share his expertise on the causes of dry eye and provided the following five steps to help your dry eye condition.
Causes of Dry Eye
Dry eyes are generally caused by reduced amount of tears being produced to sufficiently keep the eyes wet and lubricated, causing discomfort, irritation, redness, trouble focusing, and many times light sensitivity. Dr. Michael Lange explains that some common reasons for dry eye include contact lens use – from improper use to frequent use – there is decreased oxygen supplied directly to the eyes and increased tear evaporation, aging causes decreased tear production and many arthritis related conditions can cause dry eyes.
Additionally, certain medications act on receptors that decrease tear secretions leading to dry eyes. Finally, one of the biggest causes of dry eyes is our environment, where things such as heaters, dust, pollen and pollution can lead to the drying of eyes.
Give your body the fuel it thirsts for! Dr Michael Lange has been involved in research and development of a new supplement called Fortifeye Fit for many years. This new powdered supplement will take the very latest in evidence based science in sports nutrition and combine it into one supplement. Fortifeye FIT will be used as a pre, intra and post workout supplement. This supplement is being developed to maximize your training by enhancing muscle synthesis, endurance and strength. This will be all natural with no artificial dyes, sweeteners, flavoring agents or caragenaneen . Fortifeye Fit will be a combination of 10 evidence based nutrients that when combined will give the athlete in the gym or on the court that needed edge. This new generation supplement will enable the user to maximize the benefits of hard training. People will see much faster gains in strength , muscle size and endurance when Fortifeye Fit is combined with training . This supplement will give the nutrients necessary for explosive energy and prolonged energy while reducing recoverytime and enhancing muscle synthesis. Look for availability around August 2019.

Dr. Michael Lange and Dr. Karen Hecht discuss the amazing health benefits of a super carotenoid called astaxanthin. They discuss in some detail the eye health benefits and the overall health benefits of astaxanthin. They also discuss the benefits of lutein and zeaxanthin. Dr. Michael Lange in conjunction with Astareal and Fortifeye Vitamins developed a supplement called Fortifeye Focus that is being used and recommended by doctors all over the world. Fortifeye Focus is the first and only supplement in the industry that has combined Lutein, zeaxanthin isomers and astaxanthin in a fish gel capsule with an olive oil delivery system. He has also researched and developed a brand new supplement called Fortifeye Advanced Dry Eye Therapy that both doctors discuss during this interview. Fortifeye Advanced Dry Eye Therapy is a combination of Fortifeye Super Omega ,Fortifeye Focus and Fortifeye Black Currant oil/ GLA. Both doctors also discuss the amazing overall health benefits of astaxanthin during this segment. Health benefits like improved skin health, mitochondrial support, improved muscle endurance and recovery are discussed during this interview. Astareal astaxanthin has many studies supporting ocular benefits like improved choroidal circulation , improved ciliary muscle functioning , reduction in eye fatigue, improved test production and much much more . After watching the video you will see why doctors are recommending these products all over the world and why consumers continue taking them.
Beyond Blue Light: Astaxanthin & Eye Health
Benefits of natural astaxanthin for accommodation & aging eyes
How Astareal® Astaxanthin Works In The Eyes
The front of the eye holds all our focusing power in the cornea and the lens. While the cornea accounts for ~60% of the eye’s total optical power, its focus is fixed. In contrast, the lens is flexible and allows for dynamic focus so we can see the world around us from 7cm to infinity. Dynamic focus occurs by changing the shape of the lens, which is controlled by ciliary muscles and ligaments at the front of the eye. When we focus on objects ≤20 feet away, the ciliary muscles contract to round out the lens. When we focus on objects ≥20 feet away, the ciliary muscles relax, and the lens flattens out. These changes in the eye allow dynamic focus and are part of a coordinated process called accommodation.
Dr Michael Lange (Lange Eye Institute and Fortifeye Vitamins and Dr Karen Hecht of Asta Real discuss the amazing health benefits of a super carotenoid called astaxanthin. Dr Lange discusses clinically the positive results he has seen with his patients when using a supplement called Fortifeye Focus. Fortifeye Focus is the only supplement in the industry that has triple carotenoids in an olive oil delivery system encased in a fish gel capsule. Fortifeye Focus combines lutein, zeaxanthin and astaxanthin in one gel cap. Dr Karen Hecht discusses the science and clinical studies behind astaxanthin. Astareal Astaxanthin has more clinical studies standing behind this nutrient that any other astaxanthin brand . Astaxanthin has some amazing ocular benefits but some exciting science is proving it is also great for muscle endurance and muscle recovery. Astaxanthin may be the next big supplement for athletes to help with their performance and rigorous training. They both discuss how the combination of lutein, zeaxanthin and astaxanthin work in synergy together .

Great article on Exposure to blue light from digital screens written by Sean Moloughney that is posted on nutraceuticalsworld.com.
“Traditionally an area of focus for people later in life, maintaining healthy eyesight remains a top concern that extends to consumers across the age spectrum. Many experts today are concerned about the long-term health implications of overexposure to blue light from digital devices, especially for younger eyes.
For instance, according to a Harvard Health Publications newsletter, blue wavelengths in moderation are beneficial during daylight hours because they boost attention, reaction times, and mood. However, they can be especially disruptive at night, shifting circadian rhythms and suppressing melatonin. Overexposure can also lead to eye fatigue.”
Dr. Michael Lange has been involved in Blue light research for many years and has developed a supplement called Fortifeye Focus that incorporates the latest in science into this one supplement. Dr. Lange also produces a lens called Blue Light Defense that filters the harmful blue light people come in contact with on a daily basis. The combination of the 2 new technologies Fortifeye Focus and Blue Light Defense lenses offers the highest protection from the potentially harmful blue light that is available today. Dr. Michael Lange is a huge advocate of filtering this harmful blue light at all ages and states this is one more large step into the realm of preventative medicine and anti aging. Here is a new article discussing the benefits of lutein and zeaxanthin isomers and blue light.
Background: The so-called macular carotenoids (MC) lutein (L), zeaxanthin (Z), and meso-zeaxanthin (MZ) comprise the diet-derived macular pigment (MP). The purpose of this study was to determine effects of MC supplementation on the optical density of MP (MPOD), repeated-exposure photostress recovery (PSR), and disability glare (DG) thresholds.
Methods: This was a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. Fifty-nine young (mean age = 21.7), healthy volunteers participated in this study. Subjects supplemented their daily diet with either 10 mg L + 2 mg total Z (1 mg Z + 1 mg MZ; n = 24), 20 mg L + 4 mg total Z (2 mg Z + 2 mg MZ; n = 25), or placebo (n = 10) for 12 months. The primary outcome was a composite measure of visual performance in glare, defined by change in DG and PSR. Secondary outcomes included MPOD and visual fatigue. The primary endpoint for outcomes was 12 months. MPOD was assessed with customized heterochromatic flicker photometry. PSR times for an 8 cycle /degree, 15 % contrast Gabor patch target were determined after each of five successive exposures to intense LED lights. DG threshold was defined as the intensity of a ring of lights through which subjects were able to maintain visibility of the aforementioned target. Measures of all parameters were conducted at baseline, 6 months, and 12 months. Repeated-measures ANOVA, and Pearson product-moment correlations were used to determine statistically significant correlations, and changes within and between groups.
Results: MPOD for subjects in both supplementation groups increased significantly versus placebo at both 6- and 12-month visits (p < 0.001 for all). Additionally, PSR times and DG thresholds improved significantly from baseline compared to placebo at 6- and 12-month visits (p < 0.001 for all). At baseline, MPOD was significantly related to both DG thresholds (r = 0.444; p = 0.0021) and PSR times (r = -0.56; p < 0.001). As a function of MPOD, the repeated-exposure PSR curves became more asymptotic, as opposed to linear. The change in subjects’ DG thresholds were significantly related to changes in PSR times across the study period (r = -0.534; p < 0.001). Conclusions: Increases in MPOD lead to significant improvements in PSR times and DG thresholds. The asymptotic shape of the repeated-exposure PSR curves suggests that increases in MPOD produce more consistent steady-state visual performance in bright light conditions. The mechanism for this effect may involve both the optical filtering and biochemical (antioxidant) properties of MP.
Trial registration: ISRCTN trial registration number: ISRCTN54990825. Data reported in this manuscript represent secondary outcome measures from the registered trial.

New Fodmap Friendly All Organic Blue Green Superfood Powder Developed by Dr. Michael Lange Soon to be added to the Fortifeye Family!
Dr Michael Lange has been taking care of a wide range of patients through out Florida since 1993, changing people’s lives through proper nutrition. Throughout his profession, Dr. Lange has seen first hand how poor diet can have a negative impact on his patients. He has been involved in nutritional research to support ocular and overall health. Progressively, more and more individuals are being negatively impacted by their poor diets and lifestyles. Sadly this is becoming more and more main stream at younger and younger ages. This comes from the body not being fueled with the beneficial nutrients the body needs to flourish. The diet of a typical person in this day and age consists of over processed, calorie dense, nutrient deficient, fast food filled with pesticides, hormones, and antibiotics. To all of his patients, radio listeners, family, and friends, Dr. Lange recommends an all organic gluten-free paleo type diet. However, even with this type of diet , one may still notice tenderness and bloating in the abdomen, belching, and even gas after eating. Many people experience Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), which can be aggravated by certain fruits and vegetables. Dr. Lange and Fortifeye Vitamins decided to research and develop a powdered super food using all organic and non GMO fruits and vegetables that would be ideal for anyone on a low carb diet, diabetics, even people experiencing IBS or other functional gastrointestinal disorders.
The new Fortifeye Blue Green Superfood is an all organic, Non GMO, delicious powder combining fruits and vegetables that are both Paleo and FODMAP friendly. Every ingredient, down to the flavor system, was taken into consideration in the development of this product. All nutrients found in the Fortifeye Blue Green Superfood are sourced from the United States. Many Super Food related products use inexpensive binders, bulking agents, and fillers such as flax, psyllium, acacia, oat bran, etc. which leads the consumer to believe they are getting a healthy fiber and more bang for their buck in each scoop. However, this is not the case. In reality, both soluble and insoluble fibers may block the absorption of the nutrients from the overall product. You will NOT find any of these fiber fillers in our Blue Green Superfood powder. Ingredients will include but not be limited to: Spirulina, Kale, Spinach, Barley Grass Juice, wheat grass juice, Parsley, Cucumbers, Peppermint Leaf, Blue Berries, Strawberries, Cranberries, and Cinnamon.
Fortifeye Blue Green Superfood is expected to retail MSRP at $35 a container and will be available in Berry flavor with Chocolate flavor to follow. You can get this product first ONLY here at Fortifeye.com. Stay tuned for more progress and release date on the product!
AstaReal Group, the manufacturer in which our Astaxanthin comes from in our Fortifeye Focus, gives us the inside scoop on their manufacturing.

Most dairy cows are raised in a confined area and are fed genetically modified grains in feed lots that are enhanced with hormones and antibiotics to increase milk production. Fortifeye Super Protein is derived from New Zealand A2 dairy cows that are grass fed free range year round. This protein is free from pesticide, hormones and antibiotics. Grass fed A2 cows produce the highest quality milk that our whey protein concentrate comes from. There is more and more science proving that A2 cows are a better source of milk than A1 cows. Go to this link to learn the latest on A2 New Zealand cows http://thea2milkcompany.com/about-us/about-our-milk/
Dr. Michael Lange and Fortifeye Vitamins researched the best possible dairy cows to use when developing Fortifeye Super Protein. The conclusion was to use year round grass fed New Zealand dairy cows. Fortifeye Super Protein is a non denatured whey protein concentrate from grass-fed New Zealand A2 cows. This protein has an all organic natural flavor system that makes both the chocolate and the vanilla delicious and it readily mixes with any liquid.
A non denatured or undenatured whey protein concentrate from grass-fed New Zealand cows is significantly different from most traditional non pasture raised or partial pastured whey protein concentrates . Grass fed cows will typically have 60% or higher omega 3 content in their milk versus non grass-fed cows milk. This is crucial since the typical diet is pro inflammatory and is already too high in omega 6 . Drinking a milk protein that is higher in omega 3 will help the body to fight off inflammation and promote wellness. Consuming a whey protein concentrate that has a higher ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 is a step in the right direction of anti aging .
Grass fed pasture raised cows are much higher in a very important fat called conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). CLA has some enormous positive health benefits and immune system stimulating properties. Studies indicate that CLA may be beneficial to heart health and have some anti cancer and anti diabetic benefits as well. Grass fed pasture raised cows have up to 500% more CLA than non grass-fed cows. New research proving CLA is great for the heart and other potential diseases http://www.reuters.com/article/2010/05/28/us-milk-grass-fed-cows-idUSTRE64R5GY20100528#xXmSZgGYkTIb2DqV.97
A bioactive non denatured whey protein concentrate like Fortifeye Super Protein is the best way to stimulate the master antioxidant and detoxifier in the body called Glutathione. Non denatured means the protein has not been heated or altered . The key amino acid cysteine combines with glutamic acid and glycine to make glutathione. Glutathione levels continuously decline as we age. Glutathione deficiencies are linked to many illnesses and diseases. Replenishing glutathione levels by consuming a whey protein concentrate is recommended by anti aging doctors all over the world. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-mark-hyman/glutathione-the-mother-of_b_530494.html
Lactoferrin is another key immune boosting component of whey protein. Lactoferrin is a globular glycoprotein that has many potential health benefits. New research indicates that lactoferrin may have antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal and possibly anti carcinogenic effects. Relatively new research indicates people with dry eyes may have lower than normal levels of lactoferrin in their tears. Dry eye treatment with lactoferrin? The future of natural dry eye treatment may involve supplementing with a good grass fed whey protein concentrate. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lactoferrin
Whey Protein is the fastest most bioactive form of protein known to man. Whey protein has the highest biological value (BV) of all food grade proteins at a BV of 104. Whey Protein is high in a specific amino acid called leucine . Leucine is the “Mack Daddy ” amino acid for stimulating muscle synthesis. Whey protein is far superior to casein, soy or any other protein for muscle synthesis. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24015719
You can clearly see that the addition of a good non denatured grass fed whey protein concentrate may be beneficial to your overall health and help to promote a healthy immune system. Fortifeye Super protein combined with organic fruits and vegies in a smoothie is a great way to start the am.
If you are trying to maximize each of your workouts then a pre workout drink using Fortifeye Super Protein blended with coconut milk or almond milk, blue berries and a banana.
Post recovery workout drink with in 30 minutes of training would benefit from a scoop of Fortifeye Super Protein, a wedge of watermelon blended with organic chocolate milk. https://strengthtrainingandconditioning.wordpress.com/2013/01/07/the-ultimate-post-recovery-protein-drink-by-dr-michael-lange/
Dr Michael Lange and Fortifeye Vitamins have developed a new whey protein concentrate (WPC) called Fortifeye Super Protein. Dr Michael Lange has been involved in numerous nutritional studies using the latest in dietary changes and supplementation for age related macular degeneration. He noticed that one of the biggest nutritional deficiencies in his patients when doing intracellular blood tests was Glutathione.
Glutathione is the “master antioxidant ” in the body responsible for many biological processes in life. One of the best ways to stimulate glutathione is by consuming a good non denatured or undenatured whey protein concentrate. Dr Lange of course wanted the best quality highest bio available protein . Fortifeye Super Protein is a non denatured whey protein concentrate from grass fed New Zealand Pasture raised A2 cows. These free range cows graze year round on grass free from gmos and pesticide. The protein has not been denatured with high heat or acid and is free of gluten, wheat, soy, corn , pesticides, antibiotics and hormones.
Fortifeye Super Protein can be used as a pre workout and post workout smoothie to help gain muscle mass and loose body fat. When blended together with specific fruits and vegetables Fortifeye Super Protein can be used as a meal replacement.

By Stephen Daniells+Stephen DANIELLS, 06-Nov-2015
Vitamin D has been extensively researched for its benefits in bone health, cancer, inflammation, and the immune system. A new study published in JAMA Ophthalmology last week found that Vitamin D may be a critical player in eye health in the prevention of age-related macular degeneration, specifically among women who are genetically susceptible. This may have to do with its role in inflammation, which is believed to be involved in the development of macular degeneration.
Macular degeneration is characterized by the deterioration of the macula, which is a small part of the retina where the eye’s photoreceptors are most concentrated. Macular degeneration is the leading cause of vision loss, more than cataracts and glaucoma combined.
In this study, the research team found that women who have a vitamin D deficiency and a specific high-risk genotype are 6.7 times more likely to develop age-related macular degeneration than women with sufficient vitamin D levels and no high risk genotype. Continue reading

Dr Michael Lange discusses Proper Digestion for good ocular health and overall health
Proper digestion is crucial for good ocular health as well as overall health discussed by Dr Michael Lange
When the food you consume on a daily basis is not digested well then the absorption of the nutrients is limited. As we age our digestion can stop working at its peak level and then our overall health can suffer. Many things can interfere with the natural digestive enzymes and natural bacteria in our digestive system and this can result in all sorts of conditions. Diet is often times the culprit for digestive issues. Todays diets are caloric dense and nutrient deficient. These foods are overly processed, genetically modified , filled with pesticide, antibiotics, hormones, nitrites , nitrates, sugar, dyes, artificial sweeteners and preservatives. All of this can cause enormous stress on the digestive system. Millions of people are plagued daily with food allergies, constipation, diarrhea, gas, acid reflux, heart burn, bloating, cramping and low energy . All of these can be related to poor digestion.

Anti Aging Tips by Dr Michael Lange 10/14/16
The AntiAging Zone
1. Proper Diet is crucial! I recommend a modified organic gluten free paleo diet. The largest portion of your meal should be vegetables , then fruit and then a good organically raised source of protein like eggs, chicken, turkey, wild cold water fish , grass fed bison or beef. Stay away form all processed, canned, frozen foods. Drink plenty of spring water and stay away from distilled or reverse osmosis water. I dont like these type of purified waters because the minearls are leached out and they are very acidic. However if u have an RO system you can make the water healthy water Continue reading

Dr. Michael Lange Discusses Nutritional & Lifestyle Intervention for Macular Degeneration Published: Thursday, June 26, 2014
Article Link: http://beforeitsnews.com/health/2014/06/dr-michael-lange-discusses-nutritional-lifestyle-intervention-for-macular-degeneration-2540480.html
Macular Degeneration is the leading cause of legal blindness in the U.S. in the over 55 age group, said Dr. Michael Lange. There are over two million people that are vision impaired from macular degeneration. It is estimated that over three million people will have Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD) by 2020.
Macular degeneration is a medical condition that causes degeneration of the central part of the retina, called the macula. The macula is a small Continue reading
Dr. Lange is excited to announce that Lange Eye Care and Associates is using a new at home monitoring device developed for macular degeneration patients called Foresee Home AMD Monitoring Program. Lange Eye Care and Associates is one of the first eye care centers in the country to utilize this technology, the first FDA cleared home telemonitoring system for macular degeneration patients. ForeseeHome allows patients to take a proactive role in preserving their vision at home. This advanced technology allows for the detection of early macular changes before the patients is aware. The device transmits the results of the test daily to a monitoring center via a cellular modem or phone line. This device has been clinically proven to be extremely sensitive at picking up the earliest change from dry macular degeneration to the more visually devastating form called wet macular degeneration. The data center then alerts the doctors office of the potential changes in the patients retina and allows for much earlier intervention by the retina specialist to lessen the potential damage!
Dr Michael Lange has been involved in nutritonal research for Macular Degeneration for many years and has been developing a system of proper nutrition based on age, weight, disease level and DNA. The ultimate goal is to help the ocular health and total health of his patients. Proper nutrition is only one piece of the puzzle that is extremely important in managing macular degeneration patients. Dr Lange and many other Doctors are now utilizing DNA testing to help them gauge the potential severity of the macular degeneration and to determine if zinc is good or bad for the ARMD patient. This helps the optometrist or ophthalmologist cutomize the patients diet and supplements. The DNA testing also helps the doctor in determining how often a particular patient should be seen and what Continue reading

Due to this discrepancy, he founded Fortify Vitamin in 2005. Since its inception, Lange established a line of vitamins for both eye and overall body health called Fortifeye Vitamins, which are now one of the top choices of health care providers all over the world. This has led Lange to develop unique supplements that aim to increase the health of one’s eye as well as contributing to total body health.
Dr. Michael Lange Says Proper Nutrition Can Prevent Dry Eye
Link to view article: http://dailyglobe.com/33910/dr-michael-lange-treatment-dry-eye/
Dr. Michael Lange says that dry eye ranks among the most common complaints of patients coming in for optometry appointments. This condition is due to an insufficient amount of tears in the eyes, which are necessary for eye health for many reasons. They provide lubrication and nourishment which maintain the health of the front surface of the eye and also provide clear vision. Dry eye drains the eye of these important components, and often lessens the quality of the tears that are left.
Dr. Michael Lange Says Omega-3 Oils Can Save Dry Eyes
