Ocala eye doctor Michael Lange, optometrist, continues to expand quality eye care in Florida

Ocala eye doctor Michael Lange, optometrist, continues to expand quality eye care throughout Marion County and the entire state of Florida

Dr. Michael Lange, Ocala eye doctor, had a dream of developing an eye care center that would provide the highest quality eye care and nutrition for patients of all ages and all walks of life. His dream of providing the best Ocala eye care is now becoming a reality.

ocala1o 300x400 Ocala eye doctor Michael Lange, optometrist, continues to expand quality eye care in Floridaspacer Ocala eye doctor Michael Lange, optometrist, continues to expand quality eye care in FloridaMichael Lange, a native of New Orleans, Louisiana, received two undergraduate degrees in psychology and physiological optics before graduating from optometry school in Pennsylvania in 1992. While working in New Orleans, right out of school, gaining valuable experience at the Eye Surgery Center of Louisiana and at St. Charles Vision he did a demographic study of the country to determine where an optometrist would be most needed. His study determined that one of the fastest growing retired populations in the entire country in 1990 was a city in Marion County, Florida, called Ocala. Michael Lange, optometrist from New Orleans decided to leave his home town, family and friends and move to Ocala on March 15, 1993. This was a gamble that paid off for Michael Lange, Ocala eye doctor.

The Ocala eye doctor builds his reputation

Dr. Michael Lange moved to Ocala by himself and started Lange Eye Care and Associates in March, 1993. Dr. Lange states, “I was in the right place at the right time.” Dr. Lange fell in love with Ocala, Florida, and the surrounding areas. He said the landscape in Ocala, Florida, was not typical of Florida with its rolling hills and huge grand daddy oaks. The large grand daddy oak trees with the Spanish moss reminded him of the trees along St. Charles Avenue and Audubon and City Park in New Orleans. Dr. Lange was asked to host his own talk show called “Ask The Doctor” on a local AM radio station shortly after starting his first eye care center in Ocala. This talk show became quite popular and he began hosting this popular talk show on multiple radio stations in Ocala and Gainesville. The show focused on eye care and nutrition and was a live call-in show broadcast for one hour strategically placed during drive times in the morning, at noon and in the evening. Dr Lange’s eye care philosophy and smooth way of handling each caller on his radio show became a huge hit and sparked the beginning of his aggressive growth and expansion. Dr. Lange quickly became known as Michael Lange, the “Ocala Eye Doctor” that everyone wanted to see. Dr Lange’s reputation as the eye doctor that truly cares quickly spread and patients would drive from hundreds of miles around to see Dr. Michael Lange in Ocala, Florida. Dr Lange quickly expanded to Gainesville, Florida, and opened the second location of Lange Eye care in 1994. Dr. Lange quickly outgrew both of his locations in Ocala and Gainesville and in 1998 purchased a 15,000 square foot building on State Road 200 across from the Paddock Mall that became the headquarters for Lange Eye Care. He also moved his Gainesville office away from the mall and put it next to Target on Archer Road in a 7,000 square foot space. He then started to expand around his home office in Ocala, Florida, and opened offices in Williston, Inverness, Summerfield, West Ocala, The Villages and Clearwater.

The Lange Eye Institute

Dr. Michael Lange the Ocala eye doctor pulled from his New Orleans culture and decided to build a state-of-the-art eye care center that was modeled after an old plantation on the Mississippi river. The Lange Eye Institute is close to 30,000 square feet and is the largest eye care center of its type in the area. The Lange Eye institute in The Villages has specialty suites built for all aspects of eye care including pediatric, medical, surgical, nutritional and optical eye care. The Lange Eye Institute is home to many nutritional absorption studies developed by Dr. Michael Lange. Dr. Lange utilizes an in-house blood lab upstairs in The Lange Eye Institute to check absorption of specific nutrient combinations he has developed to aid in decreasing free radical damage in the eyes and body. Dr. Michael Lange of Ocala became a certified nutrition specialist in 2008 through The American College of Nutrition. Dr. Lange states, “This gives more credibility to what we are doing with the development of supplements for the eyes and entire body.” Dr. Lange started Fortifeye Vitamin Company in 2004 because he was not happy with the over the counter supplements that were available for his patients. Dr. Lange travels the world now in search of new ways of helping his patients through the right combinations of nutrition. Fortifeye Vitamins, as of 2011, has grown to a global company with seven specific nutritional supplements that target the eye and entire body. Doctors from all over the world are recommending Fortifeye Vitamins to their patients.

In January 2010, Dr. Lange’s popular talk show “Ask The Doctor”, went syndicated daily from 9-10 Monday through Saturday. It can now be heard in Florida on multiple radio networks and throughout the world via the Internet.

This new formulation was developed to help reduce accommodative stress due to prolonged working at a near focal length. Fortifeye FOCUS is recommended for individuals who experience eye fatigue with near point tasks or after prolonged work on a computer. Fortifeye FOCUS can be used alone or in combination with any of the Fortifeye™ Vitamins.
