Dr. Steve Wexler received his Doctor of Optometry degree from the Illinois College of Optometry (ICO) in 1992. His Externship training involved complex examination, studies and treatment of children and teens who had multifaceted visual-cognitive disabilities at the Marchman Rehabilitation Center in Chicago. Also, Dr. Wexler completed a secondary Externship at the Minneapolis Society for the Blind where comprehensive assessments of patients with partial sight were performed and optical devices were prescribed to suit their needs, lifestyles and daily living activities.
