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.
