Beyond his work as the host of “Ask the Doctor”, a talk radio show, Dr. Michael Lange is an optometrist who founded The Lange Eye Institute over 20 years ago. Further, Dr. Michael Lange is a nutritionist who created the Fortifeye Complete Once Daily Multivitamin to help people achieve their nutritional goals.

By bringing together the latest scientific advancements in antioxidant therapy, free-radical damage research, and Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) studies, Fortifeye created its Fortifeye Complete Once Daily Multivitamin. Made using a nutraceutical formula which combines minerals and vitamins, each of the Complete Once Daily Multivitamin tablets has an ORAC value, or antioxidant capacity, in excess of 10 times the value achieved by typical multivitamin tablets.

Further, Fortifeye Complete Once Daily Multivitamins use completely natural materials, with no dyes, artificial sweeteners, or imitation nutrients. This makes the product ideal for those who want to ensure that their bodies have the antioxidants required to combat the damage caused by free radicals, which contribute to the visual signs of aging, such as wrinkles.

Known for his expertise in nutritional eye care, optometrist Dr. Michael Lange stands out as the developer of the Fortifeye line of vitamins. Through this company, Michael Lange, OD, offers a super omega-3 fish oil supplement for patients with dry eye and other conditions.

Tears are essential for the healthy function of the human eye. They wash debris out of the eye, lubricate the surface of the eyeball, and help to prevent infection. In patients with dry eye syndrome, however, tears are of insufficient quantity or quality to support these functions.

While many patients with dry eye syndrome find that eye drops provide some relief from the condition’s inherent irritation, evidence exists to show that fish oil supplements may offer an additional benefit. A 2005 study showed a 17 percent lower risk of dry eye in participants who consumed high levels of omega-3 acids from fish, and a later study published by the International Journal of Ophthalmology confirmed the supplement’s potential benefits.

Fish oil contains docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), both omega-3 fatty acids. These compounds are easily absorbed and can help the body to produce more tears. Additionally, because fish oil contains high concentrations of both fatty acids, such a supplement offers symptom relief when taken on a regular basis. Dr Michael Lange has developed Fortifeye Super Omega that is being used by patients and doctors world wide for dry eyes. Learn more at www.fortifeye.com

The host of the radio talk show Ask the Doctor, Dr. Michael Lange, OD, is an optometrist who has seen patients at his Florida-based office since 1993. In conjunction with his work as an optometrist, Dr. Michael Lange also developed his own line of eye vitamins, Fortifeye, which offers Zinc Free Macular Defense, a vitamin that is designed to combat age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

AMD is an eye disorder that causes vision loss as a person reaches an advanced age. More than 10 million Americans are living with this incurable disease, which causes the central portion of the retina to deteriorate, impacting one’s ability to see fine details.

Risk factors for AMD include being 55 years of age or older, being Caucasian, and having a relatives who have developed the disease. Smoking has also been noted to increase the likelihood that a person will develop the condition. While there is no treatment for AMD, some experts suggest that exercise and a healthy diet may help slow vision loss for people who are in its early stages.
