ICO Matters

ICO Matters is the official alumni magazine of the Illinois College of Optometry. Published three times per year, the magazine showcases what is happening with ICO alumni, current students and in the field of optometry. No matter what kind of news you have–whether it’s a change of position or a new baby–the ICO Matters staff wants to know so we can let your classmates know, too.

The magazine is published three times each year. In 2014 we launched a digital edition of the magazine,; all issues from 2014 and beyond have been formatted digitally on this site. You will also find on this site interactive PDF archives of all issues from 2012 and 2013.
