The Illinois College of Optometry’s mission is “Excellence in Clinical Education.” All we do is built upon these four words. All we do for our students, our patients and the profession of optometry is built upon these four words. We mean excellence you can measure. ICO has routinely performed better than other schools on NBEO examinations. Our faculty and students offer excellent care, as measured by patient surveys. And our faculty is recognized for their excellence in all areas, as measured by the awards, recognition and international presentations they are asked to give. Excellence. That is why future students should join ICO’s family.
