Our program is for optometrists, by optometrists.

Forget the days of undergrad education, where general classes were taken just to earn credit hours. ICO’s 4-year program is focused entirely on optometry. Our students receive robust clinical experience, including hands-on patient care in the IEI beginning in their very first year.

Of course, we know that being a doctor extends beyond eye care. ICO offers courses in financial literacy, practice management, and other real-world aspects of optometry. Our top-notch resources expose students to tomorrow’s technologies and modes of practice.
