Our Advanced Technology

Our practice prioritizes investing in the latest innovations in eye care technology to offer our patients the best possible care.

At LaCroix Eye Care, we deliver classic, quality care with a modern approach to medicine. It has been our commitment to remain at the forefront of technology by leveraging innovative instrumentation to enhance our patient care and experience. This allows our eye care professionals to detect and monitor subtle eye problems with remarkable accuracy, fostering early intervention and precise treatment. Our combination of advanced diagnostic technology rooted in professional, conscientious care as the foundation for our eye care services.

Visual Field

Visual field testing is a routine part of eye care but becomes especially important when evaluating and monitoring specific eye conditions. We employ a variety of ways to map your peripheral field of vision, one of which is our Humphrey Visual Field test. This instrument outlines your peripheral field of vision in refined detail, identifying subtle blind spots that sometimes go unnoticed by the viewer. Monitoring your visual field is a crucial component in managing conditions that can affect your field of vision such as glaucoma, optic neuritis, strokes, or medications with ocular side-effects.

Optomap Retinal Imaging

Optomap retinal photography provides a wide-digital image of the back of your eye, the retina, capturing more than 80% of your retina in one panoramic image. Wide-digital retinal imaging offers a fast, non-invasive way to assess your retinal health comprehensively and detect early signs of eye disease such as glaucoma, macular degenerations, retinal tears, or choroidal nevi (freckles). This imaging aids our doctors’ ability to monitor your eye health over time for change and allows for easier and more precise detection of eye disease. The integration of Optomap retinal photography into our practice reinforces our commitment to providing efficient, advanced eye care solutions for our patients.

OPD-Scan III by Marco

OPD-Scan III utilizes advanced wave-front technology to gather information regarding your prescription by taking a variety of precise measurements from the curvature of your cornea, your lens, and the length of your eye. It is an autorefractor, keratometer, pupillometer, corneal topographer, and wavefront aberrometer all in one device. This instrumentation is used in routine eye care to aid in our doctor’s ability to determine your glasses or contact lens prescription with great precision, in addition to monitoring eye conditions that may cause your vision to blur or prescription to change, such as dry eye disease, corneal disease, and lens/cataract progression.

Biophotonic Nutritional Scan at LaCroix Eye Care

Biophotonic Nutritional Scan

We believe in taking a proactive approach to preventing eye disease, which is why we incorporate the Biophotonic nutritional scan into our practice. This Nobel Prize winning instrument measures the body’s antioxidant level through your skin, providing a revolutionary way to identify deficiencies in certain nutrients that are important for eye health. This information makes is possible for our doctors to determine if a patient is receiving enough nutrients to protect their eyes from age-related eye disease and allows our doctors to make recommendations on certain lifestyle changes, nutrition, or eye supplements. This approach is aimed to not only prevent eye disease but also to improve overall health and wellbeing.

Corneal Mapping

Corneal mapping is performed through the use of advanced topographers, that provide detailed measurements of the curvature of the front of your eye, the cornea. This testing is performed as a part of your routine eye examination to identify early signs of eye disease like keratoconus or pellucid marginal degeneration and to monitor disease for progression. Corneal topography is also used in the selection and fitting of soft contact lenses, specialty contacts, and myopia control for patients with regular and irregular astigmatism.

Ocular Coherence Tomography at LaCroix Eye Care


Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive scan that uses light waves to provide detailed, cross-sectional images of the distinctive layers of your retina, optic nerve, and blood vessels. It can be compared to a CT scan of the retina without the use of harmful radiation. By revealing the retina’s distinct layers, OCT facilitates the early detection and progression of conditions such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and edema, and macular degeneration.

Oculus Keratograph

The Oculus Keratograph is advanced diagnostic instrument used in the management of dry eye disease that captures external images of your ocular surface including eyelids, eyelashes, eyelid dynamics, tear film, and cornea. This allows our doctors to document disease progression over time and serves as an extremely useful tool to educate patients. The Oculus Keratograph aids in our doctor’s ability to provide targeted treatments customized to the underlying cause of your dry eye.

TRS 5100 Digital Refracting System at LaCroix Eye Care

TRS 5100 Digital Refracting System

The TRS 5100 Digital Refracting System is a state-of-the-art digital refractor that modernizes the way our doctors determine your prescription. This automated refracting system allows our doctors to determine your prescription with great efficiency and precision, allowing for a seamless, comfortable vision exam. Patients benefit from this technology by enjoying quicker and precise eyewear prescriptions, and ultimately better vision.


LipiScan is a specialized diagnostic device designed to image your meibomian glands. Meibomian gland dysfunction is the root cause of evaporative dry eye, a critical component of dry eye syndrome. LipiScan gives doctors information regarding the health of your meibomian glands and identifies signs of dropout. This helps our doctors to determine which treatments will be specifically right for you.
