Courtney Luce, OD

Assistant Professor of Optometry





Why ICO?

ICO's educational program presents students with a unique opportunity to learn from some of the top clinicians within the field of optometry, both in the classroom and in the clinical setting. ICO students have the ability to connect what is learned in the classroom directly to experiences in the clinic, oftentimes caring for patients with complex ocular disease. As a former student and resident of ICO, I have been able to experience how rewarding being a member of the ICO community can be, and prospective students can have that to look forward to when they join the ICO family.


Dr. Luce completed her Bachelor of Science degree at Viterbo University before pursuing her Doctor of Optometry degree from the Illinois College of Optometry. Dr. Luce also completed her residency at ICO in Ocular Disease and Primary Care. Dr. Luce currently serves as a Clinical Instructor of Optometry working with students in primary care, pediatric, and urgent care clinics.
