The Blue Defense Extreme Progressive is a German engineered progressive that is a digital free form design. This design has an extremely wide corridor that allows for maximum visual performance at all ranges of vision. This progressive lens comes in three materials 1.60, 1.67 and trivex. This is the very latest in blue filtering technoogy. Blue light protection is a hot topic right now to minimize the blue light damage to the eyes. Research has implicated chronic blue light exposure with increased risk of macular degeneration. Studies also indicate that filtering the blue light especially in the evening may improve sleep patterns. The doctors at Lange Eye Care have had multiple testimonials from patients stating they have improved sleep patterns once they started wearing the Blue Light Defense lenses. Dr Lange also states he has more dreams at night since wearing the Blue light Defense lenses so he claims he must be going into the REM phase of sleep which is the most restful. New University based research is sugestting that blue light exposure in the pm may reduce melatonin levels. Decreased melatonin levels are associated with many potential health problems. here is a link that goes into more detail in regards to the damaging effects of blue light http://www.health.harvard.edu/staying-healthy/blue-light-has-a-dark-side Dr Michael Lange says the Blue Light Defense is one of the best investments people can make for their health.

My wife Lynn and I have been going to Dr. Michael Lange at
Lange Eyecare in Gainesville, Florida since 1997. We first heard of him on
the radio, 97.3 The Sky where he did a weekly program. He is the most
compassionate professional we’ve ever met. Dr. Lange runs his practice only
with personnel that meet a high standard of courtesy and knowledge. Lynn
has an eye condition that could become serious, Dr. Lange not only
diagnosed it early enough that it is under control, but it’s his caring about
her and taking the time to explain all her options that have us recommending
him to friends and family. Seventeen years of excellent care says alot.

Dr Michael Lange is one of the first doctors in the country to use DNA testing to develop a nutritional protocol for the patients with macular degeneration. Macula Risk® PGx is a combined prognostic and pharmacogenetic DNA test designed to determine a patient’s risk of progression to advanced Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and aid in the selection of appropriate eye vitamin formulations for AMD based on his or her individual genetic risk profile. Dr Lange has utilized this DNA testing clinically to help in the development of a line of nutritional supplements for Macular Degeneration . Fortifeye Vitamins and Dr Lange have developed a line of Genotype directed supplements for macular degeneration. All of the doctors at Lange Eye Care utilize the DNA tests to help them determine which Fortifeye Vitamin supplement will be best for their patients. Once a patient is recommended a supplement based on age, weight, disease level and DNA they have a much higher chance of stabilizing and sometimes even improving. Patients come for all over the country to The Lange Eye Institute in The Villages to see if they may be helped through DNA directed nutrition. Come to one of the many Lange Eye Care locations to see if you are a candidate for DNA testing for macular degneration.
Lange Eye care is now fully EMR ( electronic medical records) in all ten locations. Dr. Michael Lange and his team researched EMR technology for two years and picked what system they think is best for their patients. This enables a paperless office and allows the optometrists, ophthalmologists, opticians, and the entire staff from the billing department to the labs to all be coordinated together. This will also enable the doctors to communicate with each other and the patients primary care physician more easily. The bottom line is this new EMR technology will improve customer service and allow for the doctors and satff to have much better communication with insurance companies, labs, pharmacies and other doctors. Ultimate goal is to continously stay abreast of the changing times and do whats best for our patients.

Dr. Lange was AWESOME! I’ve been a contact lens wearer for 20 years, Dr. Lange not only helped me see better- add in his knowledge and expertise on nutrition and it made this exam more like seeing a specialist. Fortifye has helped my dry eye issue greatly, it’s nice to wear my lenses all day and not have that late afternoon comfort issue. Thank you Dr. Lange for taking time to really listen, I felt like a patient not just some number! I highly recommend Dr. Lange and his staff they’re terrific! … Dr. Lange was AWESOME!

I have been going to Dr. Lange for 13 years when we first moved into the area. I heard him talking on the radio and his caring and helpful information caught my attention. Whether on the radio or in person he is always a pleasure to speak to and learn from. My interest in a more natural holistic approach to my eye health, was truly piqued after my first visit and I haven’t switched to anyone else. I have switched most of my other doctors as they don’t tend to listen. There is no doubt he has a very busy practice, but he still takes the time to explain how, why and what to help me maintain good vision. What’s even more incredible is his research and interest in cutting edge technology, nutrition, and supplements that help maintain my overall health. When he speaks to callers on the radio, he never tells people to come and see him, but suggests they get a second opinion if they are not getting optimum help with their eye problems. Like I stated above, “He’s my eye guy” and I feel he should be yours. God bless you, Dr. Lange.

How does he do it…umpteen offices, radio programs, research, and a gazillion patients to see per week? He’s my super Doc. He’s always pleasant with a smile and is a super professional. My confidence in him is unshakeable as he has been spot on concerning everything he’s recommended regarding my eye health since 2000. As a result of my last visit and his switching me to a new type lens that blocks blue light coming from electronics, my sleep pattern has improved. I have had sleep issues for decades. A quick word about his staff…they all seem to mirror his enthusiasm and professionalism in serving every patient. I would love to have him for a neighbor, but I don’t think I’d see too much of him. And in closing, this is one doctor visit I look forward to
