I would highly recommend Dr. Michael Lange to anyone with concerns regarding their eyes or any nutritional advice. Dr. Lange has been my doctor for several years and he has not only helped me with my eyes and glasses, he has helped me with controlling my weight through meal supplements using the Fortifeye high protein milkshakes. He is exceptionally knowledgeable and cares a great deal about each patient. No one is ever rushed and the staff make you feel at home.

I have been a patient at Lange Eye Care for about 7 years. Dr Lange is in my opinion one of the most professional and caring doctors that I know. There have been times when I've had to reach him outside of normal business hours with eye issues and each time he has reached back out to me, almost immediately. His in house care is excellent. If you want excellent eye care, he is the best. Thank you Doctor Lange.

Dr. Lange has improved my vision 100 per cent. I no longer need glasses or contacts either for reading or distance viewing. I credit his Fortifye vitamins for the improvement.

Dr Michael Lange has been my optometrist and my daughters optometrist for the last ten years. I would not trust my families vision to anyone but Dr Lange. He always goes over everything in detail and really makes u feel at ease. He has an amazing bed side demeanor with children as well as the very old. I give him five stars and highly recommend him to anyone looking for an eye doctor that really cares.

I have been listening to Dr Michael Lange on his radio show for about 5 years and finally made an appointment to see him . I wish I would have come in earlier. I found out the problems I had with my eye were not allergies but dry eyes. I started using his natural dry eye protocol and the symptoms I have had for the last five years are now gone in less than 2 weeks. He took the time to listen to me and run the appropriate tests without rushing me thru the way my last eye doctors did. Thanks!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about my visit to see Dr. Lange at the Lange Eye Institute. I just love going to see Dr. Lange and his staff. I had my annual eye exam but left with much more than a new pair of glasses. Dr. Lange is also a certified nutritional specialist and he educated me on what supplements I should be taking and my diet. I was very pleased with my new pair of glasses, supplements and the knowledge that will help me with my overall health. So worth the drive!
