Dr Michael Lange wants the best technology for his patients so he installed the first Topcon Maestro 3D oct in Florida in The Lange Eye Institute. Dr Lange states this is the most amazing technology all built into one machine. We used to have to take the patient into three different rooms and take a half hr to do what this instrument does in five seconds all at the same time. The diagnostic information this gives to the doctors is amazing and takes eye care into the future. we can run this on any patient and then the data shows up on a computer in one of the 15 examination rooms inside the Lange Eye Institute. The doctor then has the ability to show real time three dimensional images to the patient from the front to the back of the eye. This helps to detect disease in the eye in the very earliest stages which improves the treatment outcome dramatically. Simply Amazing!! watch this quick and easy to understand video.

Dr Michael Lange states blue light protection to avoid blue light damage is a hot topic in eye care right now. More and more research is proving that the blue-violet light form the HEV spectrum is harmful to the eyes. Our bodies and our eyes come into contact daily this potentially harmful blue-violet light. The blue light spectrum is from approximately 390 nm – 500 nm however the most recent studies suggest that the most harmful to the eye is the blue-violet spectrum. Professor Funk did a study showing that 411 nm in the blue light spectrum is very harmful to retinal cells. here is a link to the study http://www.bluelightdefense.com/publications/importance-of-blocking-shorter-wavelength-light-up-to-420nm-for-long-term-eye-health-study-by-prof-funk/
Dr Michael Lange has been recommending Blue Light Defense lenses since November 2014 to minimize blue light damage to the eyes and entire body. He states he takes the time to educate his patients on the importance of blue light protection and discusses the potential blue light damage that can occur from these frequencies of the high energy spectrum (HEV) . Many of the items being used on a daily basis like computers, lap tops, tablets, smart phones , television and over head lighting all emit frequencies of blue light. Dr Lange recommends having your prescription eye wear made form Blue Light Defense lenses and even if you do not need a prescription it is a good idea to wear plano (non prescription ) blue light defense lenses while utilizing any of the potential applications that emit blue light. learn more and order non prescription blue defenses lenses at www.bluelightdefense.com
Blue Light Defense introduces their new German designed digital free form progressive lens called Blue Defense Extreme Progressive.
Dr. Michael Lange of Lange Eye Care was the first in The United States to use this lens. Dr Lange has been prescribing this lens since November 2014 with some incredible results. This is one of the first almost clear blue filtering digital free form progressive lenses in the United States. Dr Lange states ” this is the first lens he has ever recommended that has gotten tremendous testimonials on reduction in eye fatigue, clarity of vision and enhanced sleep patterns”. This Blue Defense Extreme progressive lens has one of the widest channels of any progressive lens giving incredible vision from far to near and everywhere in between. The main benefit to the new generation Blue Light Defense lens offers is the blue light protection . This lens filters the harmful blue violets rays but allows the beneficial blue turquoise rays to come thru. This is a selective blue filtering lens that will help to combat against blue light damage to the eye. Studies have linked chronic blue light exposure to increased risk of macular degeneration and also sleep disorders. Many of the things we use daily emit blue light like: Computers, Tablets, Smart phones, television and even lighting. Dr Michael Lange says doctors from all over the country are recommending blue filtering lenses for these potential ocular and overall health benefits. read more about these benefits at this link: http://www.health.harvard.edu/staying-healthy/blue-light-has-a-dark-side Everyone at any age should be wearing blue light protection lenses to minimize blue light damage to the eye and the entire body. Dr Michael Lange recommends all children wear Blue Light Defense lenses with prescription or without prescription to filter the potentially harmful blue light being emitted form their digital apps they are constantly in front of. Blue light Defense lenses come in single vision and progressive lenses they are not available in bifocals or transition lenses. If you are considering purchasing a blue filtering lens make sure you ask the sales associate or optician to show you a demonstration of the blue filtering properties. Many blue filtering lenses are filtering only a small percent of the rays or are orange, yellow, brown or purple in color and may not be cosmetically appealing. Blue Light Defense lenses are essentially almost clear and have a demonstration available before purchasing the lens to prove to you it filters the majority of the harmful blue light. The demo consists of a traditional clear anti glare coated lens ,Blue Light Defense lens and a blue laser. The demonstrator will show you how the Blue Light Defense lens blocks the majority of the blue laser form going thru the lens but the rest of the lenses tested the blue laser will go right thru. These lenses are the highest quality lenses money can buy and are an investment in your future health. These lenses are exclusive through Lange Eye Care until the middle of October when they will be available to the entire country.
