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
