About Our Practice
In order to better serve you Advantage Optical merged with Modern Eyez during the summer of 2019. Our Modern Eyez location offers convenient parking, modern facilities and equipment and a great selection of eyewear. Prior to merger Dr. Monica LaDouceur and staff spent their time in the last four years going back and forth between the two locations.

About Our Doctors
Monica LaDouceur, O.D.
Dr. LaDouceur grew up in the beautiful Columbia Gorge, completed her Bachelors of Science at Oregon State University and received her Doctorate of Optometry from Pacific University.
She completed her clinical internships at Lebanon Veteran’s Hospital, Pennsylvania, Wenzhou Medical College, China, and Landstuhl Regional Army Medical Center, Germany. After graduating from Optometry School in 2008 she spent three years in the US Navy and five years in the US Navy Reserves. She was stationed in Japan at Naval Hospital Yokosuka.
Dr. LaDouceur really enjoys participating in humanitarian outreach missions. She has had the opportunity to provide eye care and glasses to rural villagers in the countries of Ghana, Guatemala and Sri Lanka.
She and her husband, Ryan, a teacher at Gardiner Middle School in Oregon City, moved back to the Pacific Northwest because they loved the small town feel of the area. They enjoy meeting new people, traveling, and spending time with their four young children.
Dr. LaDouceur is available for appointments Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and some Saturdays.
Chris Barbour, O.D.
Dr. Chris Barbour has been practicing optometry for over 20 years in the Columbia River Gorge, providing careful, individual attention to each patient as he strives to provide the best care of their vision and eye health.
He has been an Oregonian for over 30 years, first completing a doctorate in vision research at the University of Oregon. After graduate school, he desired to deepen his understanding of the visual system and use this knowledge to benefit patients directly. He attended optometry school in Boston, then returned the Northwest to complete a residency at the Portland Veterans Center at OHSU.
His wife, Bentley, grew up in Oregon and is a graduate of Portland State University and the University of Oregon. His son, Zach, is studying theater lighting design and art at Southern Oregon University, and his daughter, Delaney, graduated SOU with her BFA last June and is an actor performing on stage at various venues in the Portland Metro area and beyond.
After 20 years of a large group practice in the Gorge, he and his wife decided to simplify life a bit, leave the harsh Gorge winters behind, and pursue the many activities and fantastic cuisine options of the Portland area. They are both very excited to join the community of West Linn, with its river access, small-town feel, many trees, and acres of parkland.
With a great love of the outdoor life offered in the Northwest, Dr. Barbour is looking forward to seeking out some new fishing spots in the area.
As a small, independent clinic, Modern Eyez fits very well with Dr. Barbour’s values and commitment to provide personal care without the rush and bustle of a large corporate setting.
Dr. Barbour and the entire staff look forward to continuing to provide personalized care for the vision needs of the West Linn, Oregon City, Lake Oswego, Gladstone, and surrounding communities.
Ann Woods, O.D.
Dr. Woods was the owner of Modern Eyez for several years before she moved out of the area. As an avid outdoor enthusiast she missed the beautiful northwest too much and she is back! We are happy to have this wonderful doctor back in the office. She is available for appointments on Wednesdays.
