Nutrition for dry eyes is an area gaining a strong foothold in eye care centers around the globe.
Dry eye problems are one of the most common problems that optometrists and ophthalmologists are confronted with on a daily basis. Patients come into the office with eyes that feel sandy, gritty, burn, tear, itch and sometimes are quite painful. Traditionally in the past eye doctors would prescribe topical and oral medications along with artificial tears for this condition. Many eye care providers are now taking a more natural approach. Dry eyes can be improved through proper nutrition.

Dry eye is a nutritionally responsive condition and this article will discuss how proper diet and supplementation may improve subjective and objective signs and symptoms of dry eyes.

“I have seen dramatic improvement in my patients’ visual health and overall health after they start taking the Fortifeye products. In some cases, visual acuity has improved for both healthy patients as well as those with AMD. On a daily basis I am getting positive feedback from my patients.”
I recommend all of my patients with macular degeneration to take the Fortifeye Complete Macular Defense. I recommend all other patients to take The Fortifeye Complete Plus as a form of prevention. I like to use the Fortifeye Super Omega on all of my dry eye patients, contact lens intolerant patients and as a pre Lasik surgery regiment. Fortifeye Focus is great for those patients that are on a computer a lot or have chronic inflammation. I have been using Fortifeye Products since 2005 with great success.

Dr. Michael Lange is the main reason for my move to North Central Florida from South Florida. He is a pioneer in the field of nutritional eye care and his patients absolutely love him! Many of his patients have been with him since he started practice in Florida and they refuse to see any other doctor. He was the first eye doctor in FL to use intracellular nutrient blood testing and this is a huge asset we both use to better manage our macular degeneration and glaucoma patients. Many of his patients have told me that he is responsible for their recovery of lost vision through improved diet, supplements, and lastly surgery. I highly recommend Michael Lange, OD.
