Oculoplastic Surgery

Dr. Licht is a fellowship-trained, board-certified ophthalmologist specializing in oculoplastic and advanced cataract surgery. His training allows him to serve patients using the latest technology in areas of high demand within eyecare. Dr. Licht’s aspirations began at the University of Florida, where he studied linguistics and mathematics, and was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa. After three years teaching high school math, he returned to UF, earned an MS in environmental engineering, and decided on a path in medicine. He then attended Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, earning his doctorate, and continued there for his ophthalmology residency.  Dr. Licht completed additional training in global eyecare and oculofacial plastic surgery as a dual fellow at Emory University and the National Institutes of Health. During this time, he spent the better part of a year in Ethiopia researching previously unexplored aspects of trachoma, as well as learning advanced surgical techniques.

Dr. Licht joins St. Luke’s at The Villages after three years at the VA treating our nation’s veterans. A native of Ocala, he now brings his skillset back to central Florida with the goal of making meaningful and innovative contributions in his home community.
