Continuing Education

Join us for a lifetime of learning.

One of the missions of the Illinois College of Optometry is to provide lifelong education to optometrists. We believe that by enhancing your knowledge base, you will be able to improve the efficiency of your practice, serve your patients better, become a more successful doctor, and thereby strengthen the profession.


The Continuing Education Department offers certified and regular courses both on-campus and online. We offer a variety of topics to choose from, and all courses are submitted for COPE approval. ICO CE is open to all optometrists, not just alumni.
