Blue Light Defense now offers one of the top Progressive lens designs in the world called Blue Defense Extreme.
This is a brand new blue filtering monomer that filters out over 99% of the harmful blue light between 400-420nm, filters about 60% from 420-430, filters about 30% from 430-440 and filters about 16% from 440-450. 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.

New technology, “a major advancement in retinal health management,” is now offered at Lange Eye Institute in The Villages.
The Annidis RHA™ system combines advanced Multi-Spectral Imaging (MSI) technology with multi-image software processing for early detection of ocular pathologies such as age related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma.
Blue Light Defense and similar lenses are the hottest technology to hit the optical industry this century says Dr Michael Lange . For an eye doctor to be able to prescribe a lens that not only reduces eye strain and glare significantly but can filter certain wave lengths of the potentially harmful blue violet rays of light from getting back to the retina is an incredible ability!

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.
