Is there a 21st century hi-tech optometry system that will give me both more accurate eyeglass prescription and more precise corrective lenses?

My current optometrist uses the same standard, steampunky trial-and-error equipment that has been used for at least a generation: flipping lenses from eye to eye, saying "Does this look better than the last one?" It's the 21st century and there has to be a better, more accurate method of measuring my increasingly poor vision. Is there any such newfangled equipment and, if so, how would I locate an optometrist who uses it?
Of course, such a system would be useless without a company that can take these amazingly precise measurements of my eyes and use them to create a...(ahem) spectacular pair of lenses which will give me optimum vision. Is there such a place or am I confined to Lenscrafter hell?
