If you are looking for the very latest in macular degeneration treatment and macular degeneration surgery, Lange Eye Care in Ocala and Gainesville may be what you are looking for. Ocala retina care and Gainesville retina care has many different options. If you have macular degeneration, think very carefully where you want to go.

What is Macular Degeneration?

What is macular degeneration? Macular degeneration is the leading cause of vision impairment and legal blindness in the United States after the age of 55. Much of this progressive vision loss is unnecessary! The typical American is eating a diet that is convenient and quick. These foods are high in omega six, low in omega three, high in saturated fat, high in sugar, high in salt and overly processed and preserved. Americans are rapidly becoming an obese nation due to their poor dietary habits and sedimentary lifestyle. The foods are nutrient depleted and therefore the vast majority of the population is becoming sluggish and tired with no energy and as a result is becoming over weight. Obesity is a cause for many systemic diseases like high blood pressure, diabetes, elevated cholesterol, elevated triglycerides, elevated homocystein and elevated C-reactive protein. All of these are modifiable risk factors for macular degeneration.

Dry Macular Degeneration Treatment in Ocala, Gainesville, The Villages

Patients with macular degeneration need to see a doctor that is in tune with the latest in nutrition that will help their patient become proactive in their current and future health. Many patients when counseled on proper nutrition and lifestyle adjustments can actually slow down the degenerative aspects of macular degeneration. Dry macular degeneration treatment now consists of eye vitamins, lifestyle and dietary adjustments. The combinations of these three are considered treatment for dry macular degeneration.

Nutritional Retina Care in Ocala

Fourier Domain OCT – Optical Coherence Tomography. This new technology commonly known as Fourier Domain OCT or Spectral Domain OCT makes it possible to visualize large areas of the retina, significantly enhancing OCT’s diagnostic utility. Lange Eye Care is the only optical group to have this technology in the five county radius.

Lange Eye Care has doctors on staff who are in tune with all the latest in nutritional intervention and lifestyle modifications for macular degeneration. Many of the doctors at Lange Eye Care are involved in macular degeneration research using the latest in proper nutrition and vitamins for macular degeneration. Nutritional retina care in Ocala is an area that Dr. Lange and his staff of optometrists and ophthalmologists are involved in. Dr. Lange states, “I have also seen many patients actually improve when their diet, supplements and lifestyles are adjusted.”

New Treatment for Macular Degeneration

It takes discipline for a patient to follow the appropriate dietary and lifestyle modification plan. Dr. Lange likes to start out with a complete nutritional blood test (SpectraCell) that looks at all blood chemistries and also looks for any nutritional deficiency a patient may have. He also likes to get a vitamin D, 25-OH blood test and an omega-3 /omega-6 blood test. The combination of these tests will enable the doctor to develop a customized nutrition plan that is individualized for each patient based on scientific objective data. If the patient is put on a proper diet and/or supplement plan many of their nutritional deficiencies will resolve. This is crucial for great retina care in Ocala, Dr. Lange asserts. These nutritional deficiencies are corrected, then systemic health issues that are risks for macular degeneration may start to resolve. The staff at Lange Eye Care and Dr. Michael Lange have been using this philosophy for many years with great success when dealing with macular degeneration patients in Ocala and Gainesville.

Macular Degeneration Vitamins

Omega-3, B-12, glutathione and vitamin D-3 deficiencies are quite prevalent in the macular degeneration population in the Ocala and Gainesville areas. All four of these deficiencies are modifiable risk factors that can be changed very quickly with proper diet and supplements without using medication. Once these deficiencies are corrected we see pro inflammatory omega-6, arachidonic acid and C-reactive protein levels improving. Many patients will also notice an improvement in their cholesterol, homocystein and triglycerides once these nutritional deficiencies are eliminated. When the nutritional deficiencies start to resolve the patient will have more energy and a better sense of well being. These improvements will enable them to start a more vigorous exercise routine of both cardio and weight bearing exercises that will improve circulation to the eye and entire body and aid in this nutritional rehabilitation.

Sleep Deprivation, Inflammation and Stress

One more very important part to the equation for macular degeneration patients is proper amount of sleep. Sleep deprivation is another cause of inflammation and the build up of a stress hormone called cortisol in the body. “The proper amount of sleep combined with nutritional rehabilitation is very powerful at quelling the fires of inflammation in the body,” says Dr. Michael Lange, optometrist and nutrition specialist with Lange Eye Care. Proper nutrition, exercise and proper sleep act synergistically at promoting good overall health and good ocular health. These combinations can be considered a form of treatment for macular degeneration. Dr. Lange states, “Macular degeneration treatment doesn’t always entail medications, injections and surgery.”

Vitamins for Macular Degeneration

Vitamins for macular degeneration are becoming mainstream and treatment of choice for the dry form of macular degeneration. Eye vitamins should be recommended by the doctor once a diagnosis of macular degeneration is made. The eye care provider needs to work very closely with the patient’s primary care physician, internist and cardiologist to complete the team approach of total health care for each patient. The eye is the window to the body and only the optometrist or ophthalmologist is trained at looking carefully at the structures inside the eye. The optometrist and ophthalmologist can look at the vascular and nerve networks in the eye and see how systemic disease, medication and diet can have profound effects.
