Dr. Andrew Lichtig is a former New Jersey shore native who has lived in the Sunshine State for the past decade. He received his bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences from Rutgers University and attended the University of Florida for his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Lichtig went on to complete a rotating medical/surgical internship at BluePearl Veterinary Partners in Tampa, FL, followed by a move to Jupiter to join Dr. Colitz as an ophthalmology specialty intern.
Two of the many reasons he is drawn to this particular specialty is the eye’s unique ability to often reveal a diagnosis, simply by performing a comprehensive exam, as well as the refined technique and training needed to perform delicate ophthalmic microsurgery.
When not taking care of animals in need, he enjoys playing ice hockey, practicing yoga, playing guitar/bass/drums, traveling, and spending time with his wife and children (of both the human and feline variety).
