We have developed an apparatus to test Lorentz invariance in the photon sector by measuring the resonant frequency difference between two counterpropagating directions of an asymmetric optical ring cavity using a double-pass configuration. No significant evidence for the violation was found at the level of $\delta c /c \lesssim 10^{-14}$. Details of our apparatus and recent results are presented.
