Why ICO?

As a former ICO student and resident, I could not think of a more optimal clinical or educational setting. ICO provides all the necessary building blocks for students to succeed from top-notch equipment, diverse patient population, supportive professors/faculty, and a full-scope clinic. Each student graduates ready to provide the best medical care to their patients and the confidence to succeed. I am proud to be an alumna of ICO and look forward to helping future students find their passion within the amazing career of optometry!
