Upon completing his bachelors degree at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Dr. Baas received his optometric and residency training at ICO, where he has been a part-time faculty member since 2007. In 2009 Dr. Baas founded Marketplace Vision, a private practice, where he continues to see patients and manage the office. He is active with the IEI Sports Vision Service conducting vision screenings and providing care for collegiate and professional athletes in the Chicago area. Dr. Baas is a Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry and has lectured on numerous topics in practice management.
Ever since I was a student at ICO I knew that I wanted to return as a full-time faculty member. The clinical education is unrivaled and the faculty, staff and administration work as a cohesive unit to ensure that every single student is provided the tools they need to become a successful optometrist. My current position allows me to utilize both my clinical and administrative skills in an academic setting and I am excited to be a part of the ICO/IEI team.
