Getting started with contact lenses is easy—book your fitting today!Book Appointment
Finding Your Fit
A contact lens prescription differs from your regular eyewear prescription. After all, contact lenses sit directly on the cornea. They are a medical device that requires careful fitting to support your eye comfort.
When you book a contact lens exam, we will evaluate your overall eye health to determine which lenses are best for your eyes. We’ll take some measurements to make sure we get the sizing right too. During the exam, we’ll discuss your lifestyle, vision needs, and your expectations from contact lens wear.
Maybe you’re someone who only wants to wear contact lenses on special occasions. Or perhaps you’re a busy parent with a jam-packed bedtime routine who doesn’t have the time to clean and put away the same pair of lenses every night.
No matter your situation, we’ll take the time to listen to your needs and find the right lens fit for you. Book your contact lens exam now.Book Appointment
Caring for Contacts
Contact lenses sit directly on the cornea, so you’ll need to follow your optometrist’s instructions carefully to help keep your eyes healthy. Serious infections can be associated with contact lens wear, so hygiene is of the utmost importance.
Kids and teens looking for easier lens care may prefer disposable soft contact lenses. These lenses are worn once, so there are no extra steps to disinfect or store the lenses.
Contact lens wearers of all ages can prevent infections by doing the following:
- Remove your lenses before you go to sleep.
- Book annual, comprehensive eye exams to check that your eyes are still tolerating lenses well.
- Don’t shower, use a hot tub, or go swimming while wearing contact lenses.
- Replace and care for your lenses by following your optometrist’s instructions.
- If you have lenses that need to be cleaned, only use the recommended contact lens solution—never tap water.
- Wash your hands with soap and water and dry them thoroughly before inserting or removing lenses.
Exams Are Essential
If you’re a regular contact lens wearer, it’s important to come for annual eye exams so we can monitor your eye health and comfort while wearing them. But if you experience discomfort while wearing your contacts, don’t wait until your exam time comes up on the calendar.
Many people who experience discomfort give up on wearing lenses without looking for an alternative option. Dry eye is a common reason for people to go back to glasses. But we can help you find another style of lens or a dry eye treatment to keep you wearing contacts comfortably.
Regular exams are also essential for keeping your prescription up-to-date and your vision sharp. If you have a current prescription and just need a refill, you can order your contact lenses online or come in and see us!Book Appointment

Your eyes are important and of course, seeing is believing. Dr. Ben Larson is caring and his team has the latest in advanced technology to make sure your eyes get the very best technology has to offer. We only get one pair of eyes, so only the best will do for me and you should feel the same way. Because of Dr. Larson’s long tenure as a doctor, he can spot and see things in your eyes some doctors miss.
Been coming here two years. Never waited to see a specialist or doctor for more than 7minutes. The team is prompt, responsive, accurate and most of all they work together to get you out of there fast and efficiently. You would never have to question this doctors or it’s staffs integrity. Definitely recommend.

Dr Ben Larson he is absolutely amazing! He is a complete perfectionist when it comes to your vision. He is also charming and knowledgeable about all aspects of eye care. Everyone in the entire office is always kind, patient and helpful. Dr. Larson saved my ski trip this year because thanks to him, I was able to read the signs on the mountains because of my Ortho K contacts. I didn’t have to wear glasses or contacts in the cold weather which was wonderful. Dr. Larson and Ortho K are the perfect combination for an active lifestyle! they have every means of advanced testing for your vision. I would highly recommend Advanced Eye Care to anyone who is looking for the best in eye care.
Dr Christy Larson is wonderful! She is thorough and makes sure to carefully explain everything. I appreciate the care and attention I receive during each visit. The staff here is always friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Advanced Eye Care if you are looking for exceptional service and high quality care for your eyes.
Dr. Ben Larson and his staff were simply wonderful to me, on several occasions. I was dealing with a scratched cornea – which happened several times – and the entire team was compassionate and understanding. Dr. Ben gave me excellent care and helped me understand what was happening at every stage. After the last time, he discussed with me the underlying issues and is working with me to address those problems to avoid the pain of a scratched cornea again. I recommend him to everyone for eye care. And, the rest of his team is kind, cheerful, and really delightful!
I recently moved from London, England and was looking for an eye doctor. I have Keratoconus also called Conical Cornea and haven’t been able to see clearly for years. My first scleral lenses were fitted in London and did not seem to improve my vision plus were also very uncomfortable. My doctor in London was now recommending cornea transplant which made me very nervous and I was not excited about the idea of going under the knife.
I had almost lost all hope and faith in scleral lenses until I met Dr Ben Larson. Dr Larson is highly experienced and knowledgeable. From the start, he was patient and took the time to get the correct prescription. His care changed my life. Such a great experience and I am very impressed with my results in a way I never thought was possible. I highly recommend Dr Larson and Advanced Eye Care to anyone with Keratoconus or any other eye problems. Brought me tears of joy, thank you Dr Larson!
I have been going to Advanced EyeCare for 15+ years and they never cease to exceed expectations. All of the doctors and staff are friendly, professional, and treat you like you’re family. Dr. Ben and Dr. Christy truly take the time to get to know you and answer any questions you have. Also, if you need glasses, their team is the best! They make the process incredibly fun and won’t let you leave without loving your frames. Highly recommend this office and refuse to go anywhere else for my eyes!
Dr Larson and his staff especially Sam are fantastic. My 8 year old is a patient and they have helped his eye site tremendously. I can’t imagine why anyone would ever give them less than a 5 Star Review. They defiantly care about their patients a lot more than most offices we have tried.
Val reports Dr. Christy remains the very best in her field, extremely knowledgeable, and caring. Her staff starting with Heather at the front desk is able to greet multiple clients at the front desk, provide professional assistance with check in and smiles! Sam is amazing with his talent to engage clients and does an in-depth history with ease. His skill taking scans of the eye was very evident and was doe in a timely manner. Erica was was such an asset at the end of the appointment and is willing to clarify all information for follow up care. Their team was so very patient, kind, and knowledgeable when explaining how my glasses would work with my computer when looking at the screen for long periods of time. They also responded to all my questions especially showing me how to scan this review on my cell phone! I was thankful for those on the team I met yesterday! Also love the live access on the website where a person responded on the weekend. Wanted to end on saying First Class Team and environment. Thanks Dr. Christy!
This was by far the most thorough eye exam and nicest staff I have ever worked with. I was blown away by the office which is beautiful and pristine. I felt listened to and not judged for any issues. I will be coming back here for years to come.
I am very happy with my visit to this office. From making my appointment, the very thorough exam, and the over all office visit. I would highly recommend! Randy A
My first time here for eye exam. I have been served on time – without any delay. Before I come needed to reschedule 3 times due to work, they were very open and helpful to find a time slot fits my availability. Sam was very knowledgeable and nice to talk with. They have wide selection of glasses – but don’t compare it to the big stores!. Overall, my experience was positive.
Needed a repair to my Silhouette frame while visiting from out of town. They had the needed part in the right size and color in stock! They gave me a complete description of my options and the price before the work was done. Excellent, quick service while I waited. Highly recommended from my experience!
Dr. Ben fitted me for Ortho K. He got the prescription perfect. Saw 20/20 the first day following sleeping in the corrective lenses. We were completely informed as to what we might expect and how the lenses would work as well as what maintenance was required. The staff was extremely professional and courteous. The office was extremely clean and beautiful, and they took every possible precaution with Covid to ensure our safety as well as the safety of their other clients and staff. Advanced Eye Care is the best of the best!!!
