Erica Ittner

Dr. Ittner is an assistant professor at ICO, teaching third- and fourth-year optometry students in a primary care setting with a focus on ocular disease. In addition, she teaches the refraction course for the optometry sequence for first-year students. When not at work, Dr. Ittner can be found riding her bicycle around Chicago and enjoying the amazing food in this city.

ICO provides an excellent educational experience and learning environment. As an ICO alumna, I can personally attest to the superior education received by our students. The comprehensive didactic and clinical experience of ICO students and graduates continues to impress me and I am proud to be a graduate of ICO.
