Why ICO?

ICO provides an excellent education, both clinically and didactically. What you learn in the classroom and the laboratory prepares you well for our challenging patients in all the various clinics of the Illinois Eye Institute. You will have an opportunity to give back to the community through some of our community based programs as well. It’s a great place to interact with a varied student body, faculty and patient population!
