Dr. Angela To grew up in Canada and received her undergraduate degree in Natural Science with a concentration in Biology and Chemistry from the University of Calgary. She received her degree in Optometry from the Illinois College of Optometry and proceeded to complete her residency training in Pediatric Optometry and Vision Therapy at the Southern California College of Optometry.
Dr. To has recently joined ICO as a full-time faculty member with clinical and laboratory teaching responsibilities in the Pediatrics and Vision Therapy Department as well as didactic instruction in the Optometry sequence. She is involved with the Pediatric Outreach Program, in which she, along with 4th year clinicians, performs comprehensive exams on one to five year old children in different Head Start Preschools around the city.
I returned to ICO as it not only enabled me to promote and foster learning in an academic setting, but it also provided me the amazing opportunity to work alongside my former professors. I love working with students in a one on one environment and enjoy the fast paced clinic setting that ensures all students see a large volume of diverse and complicated patients each shift. I also love being back in the culinary and goldmine that is Chicago.
