Dr. Michael Lange, Ocala optometrist

Dr Michael Lange and the Lange Eye Institute in The Villages A native of New Orleans Louisiana, Dr. Michael Lange, Ocala optometrist, received undergraduate degrees in both psychology and physiological optics. After graduation from Pennsylvania College of Optometry in 1992, Dr. Michael Lange practiced in his home town of New Orleans for about six months. In Dr. Lange's last year of school he did a demographic study which revealed the area of Ocala, Florida had the fastest growing geriatric population at the time. Prior to graduating, Dr. Michael Lange had already determined he wanted to practice in an area that had a heavy geriatric population. An elderly retired population would have more eye disease and ocular pathology that would be perfect for Dr. Michael Lange. Ocala, Florida, would be his destination. Dr. Lange moved to Ocala with a car and $2000 to his name on March 15, 1993. Soon Lange Eye Care and Associates Ocala was born.
