After graduating from ICO, Dr. Foreman moved to New York to do a residency in ocular disease and primary care at the Brooklyn and St. Albans VA medical centers. Upon completing the residency, she stayed on as a full-time staff optometrist at the Manhattan VA. In addition to seeing general primary care patients, she spent a great deal of time working with veterans who had suffered a traumatic brain injury. Traumatic brain injury remains an area of interest. After four years at the VA, she relocated to Chicago and joined on as full-time faculty at ICO. Dr. Foreman works with students mainly in primary care clinics.
One of the biggest draws of ICO is the amazing clinical experience that our students receive. As we are located in a large city and serve a very diverse population, our students are exposed to a wide range of ocular conditions and situations. This is challenging, highly rewarding and truly the best preparation for becoming a well- rounded and competent clinician.
