Continuing Education


One of the missions of the Illinois College of Optoemtry is to provide lifelong learning for optometrists. We believe that by enhancing your knowledge base, you will be able to improve the efficiency of your practice, serve your patients better, become a more successful doctor, and thereby strengthen the profession.

The Continuing Education Department offers programs conveniently located on campus. Certified and regular courses are offered. Additionally, all courses are submitted for COPE approval. Courses are open to all optometrists, not just ICO alumni.

We pride ourselves in offering high quality, practical and professional programs to suit all interests. In fact, we develop our programs based on your suggestions and feedback. By providing a variety of topics from which to choose, we make it easy for you to complete your licensure requirements.
