Why ICO?

ICO offers an outstanding, well-rounded clinical education. As the oldest optometry school, ICO has a rich network of resources that encourages top-notch teaching and patient care. I’ve always felt a calling to work with students. Although I’ve enjoyed my interactions with a wide variety of other schools, ICO continues to be the best choice for optometry students, and I cannot imagine teaching anyplace else.


Dr. Goodfellow joined the ICO faculty in 2001, and he currently teaches ophthalmic optics, instructs a variety of pediatrics/binocular vision laboratories, and coordinates the Private Practice Clerkship. He is an attending optometrist in the Pediatrics/Binocular Vision Service of the Illinois Eye Institute. Dr. Goodfellow has served as the site coordinator for the Pediatric Eye Disease Investigators Group as well as the chief of the Pediatrics/Binocular Vision Service. Dr. Goodfellow lives in Beecher, Illinois, with his wife and four children.
