Optics that Defend, Build, Cure and Discover ... For this world and beyond

The LaCroix name is synonymous with quality precision optics. Since 1947, three generations of family leadership have placed LaCroix Optical Co. as one of the premier independent precision optical manufacturers in America.

We take great pride in being American Manufacturers. The strong work ethic and ingenuity of our employees are two of the cornerstones of our success. Every employee recognizes the role our optics play in their intended use -- from aiding in the diagnoses of disease to protecting our troops. This dedication drives our pursuit of perfection every day.
