Why ICO?

As an ICO student, I had the most incredible faculty and mentors. I wanted to be part of the team that makes the ICO experience so amazing for the next generation of ODs. My ultimate goal is to make as much of an impact on our students’ lives and careers as my mentors made on mine.

Biography

After earning a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Loyola University Chicago, Dr. Alexopoulos began her optometric journey at ICO, where she discovered her love for pediatric eye care. She completed the Pediatric & Infant Vision Residency at the SUNY College of Optometry, gaining valuable experience in both a university-based clinic and a high-volume hospital. She has now joined the ICO faculty full time as a clinical attending for third and fourth year students.
