Dr. Michael Lange Optometrist and Nutrition Specialist discusses Vitamins for dry eyes

  Dr. Michael Lange Optometrist with Lange Eye Care states that sooner or later everyone if affected by dry eye syndrome.  Dry eyes are one of the most common yet under diagnosed eye conditions.  Dr. Michael Lange an Optometrist and Nutrition Specialist is involved in numerous clinical studies using nutrition  for eye problems like dry eye syndrome.   The typical American  diet is one of the culprits for so much dry eye in the United States.  The majority of Americans are consuming a pro inflammatory Omega 6 diet that is perfect for increasing dry eye symptoms.  Dr. Lange preaches to patients the importance of adjusting the diet toward a less inflammatory one.  He likes to recommend patients start a gluten free, all organic Paleo type diet and stated if patients will follow this diet religiously they will improve.  However realistically most people will not follow the guidelines as strictly as they should.  So is there a magic pill we can take to help dry eyes? Is there a dry eye vitamin?  Vitamins for dry eyes are becoming an area that is being lectured about now at the continuing education lecture halls.  Do dry eye vitamins really work is the question?  Dr. Lange states most definitely they do.  Omega 3 fish oil is the most commonly prescribed supplement for dry eyes.  Dr. Lange states that the majority of fish oil you purchase at your local drug store are not going to help dry eyes because they are too weak and in the wrong form. The typical OTC fish oil is an ethyl ester molecule that goes rancid very quickly causing a nasty burp back and does not have a high enough potency to do anything.  Dr. Lange recommends Fortifeye Super Omega 2 times a day if you weigh less than 240 lbs and 3-4 times a day if you are heavier.   1000s of patients are currently taking this triglyceride form of omega 3 fish oil.  A good triglyceride form fish oil with an EPA of 850-900 and a DHA of 550-600 is what is needed to help reduce inflammation in the meibomian glands and allow a healthier tear film to be secreted.  It really is amazing how patients that take the right dosage and the right brand of omega 3 fish oil can improve so dramatically.  Fortifeye Super Omega is made in Aselund Norway at Napro Pharma the worlds leader in fish oil purification and concentration.  This fish oil is made so it is in a chewable form if patients have difficulty swallowing and it has a very good lemon orange flavor.  There is no burp back or after taste when you take Fortifeye Super omega.  Fortifeye Super Omega is the least expensive , most potent and purest triglyceride from omega 3 on the market. Call 866 503 9746 to order or get more information or go to   Dr. Michael Lange recommends this fish oil to all of his patients regardless of age.  Omega 3 fish oil has multiple ocular and systemic health benefits.
