At ICO, we have an unfailing commitment to excellence in optometric clinical education. Every student has access to outstanding professional faculty, unparalleled academic resources and hands-on clinical experience that begins in the very first year of study. This top-level classroom and clinical experience cannot be found anywhere else and it’s why our graduates are among the most successful in the nation.
ICO’s location in a major urban area offers all students the opportunity to treat diverse ophthalmic conditions at the Illinois Eye Institute. By the time you graduate from ICO, you will have a strong academic and clinical foundation for whatever career path you take. We are very proud of our NBEO pass rates – exceeding 97 percent – and we continually hear from optometrists in the field who tell us ICO graduates are their top choice because of their excellent professional training.
We encourage you to spend time exploring the resources on our website, and please be sure to contact us with any questions you may have. Once you discover all ICO has to offer, we hope you will join our community of students committed to the rigorous path toward a degree in optometry.
