Dr. Michael Lange optometrist and nutrition specialist states that macular degeneration is largely due to genetics however he believes doctors can slow down the degenerative effects with proper nutrition and filtering out the harmful high intensity blue rays from the sun. I have been using blue blocking lenses , dietary changes and proper vitamin therapy for over 20 years with my macular degenerative patients. I have seen many patients stabilize and many actually improve when they follow these specific guidelines. Doctors now have a new lens technology called blutech that they can prescribe for their patients that will filter the blue light in their every day clear pair of glasses and these patients wont have to wear the orange blue blocking lenses they have worn in the past that distorted colors. Dr. Michael Lange will recommend that all macular degeneration patients wear the blutech clear lens in their daily glasses and the blutech sunglass lens when in direct sunlight. He also recommends macular degeneration patients take Fortifeye Complete Macular Defense combined with Fortifeye Focus. These two supplements give the body and the eyes specific studied nutrients that may help to slow down the progressive degenerative effects of macular degeneration. Dr. Michael Lange states it is this combination of blue filtering lenses, and proper nutrition that can make a difference in ARMD patients. This is far from a cure for ARMD but we are at least making positive progress! Macular degeneration patients need to see their optometrist or ophthalmologist routinely, wear blutech lenses or blue blocking lenses and take the proper supplements like Fortifeye Complete Macular Defense / Fortifeye Focus or something similar.
