Alexandria Opticians

At Brahm & Powell Opticians, some of the most commonly requested products that our Alexandria opticians offer are reading and bi-focal glasses. These types of eyeglasses are commonly used when people develop an eye condition called presbyopia. Presbyopia is an eye condition that typically begins to occur in people around middle age. It is characterized by the lens of the eye’s diminishing ability to focus properly, which can make it difficult for you to see objects up close. People with presbyopia often notice the changes happening in their eyes when they try to read the newspaper or other documents, having to hold it at arm’s length in order to make out the words. If you think you might have presbyopia, it is nothing to worry about—it can easily be corrected. All you need to do is visit our Alexandria opticians for a comprehensive eye exam, during which we will carefully examine your eyes and evaluate your vision in order to confirm a diagnosis of presbyopia.

From there, we will be able to discuss treatment options with you. If you do not have any vision issues aside from your presbyopia, our Alexandria opticians will likely recommend that you use reading glasses as your vision correction method. If you were originally nearsighted and then started developing presbyopia as well, then you will most likely need to use bi-focals so that you can have assistance with both distance and close-up vision. Bi-focals and reading glasses have made great advances over the years. At Brahm & Powell Opticians, we have an extensive selection of stylish reading glasses and bi-focals for you to choose from so that you can feel happy and confident while wearing your new frames. Our Alexandria opticians are always here to help you if you are looking for a professional opinion during your search, or if you have any questions about your diagnosis and what it means.

Alexandria Eye Exams

Alexandria Eye Exams

A complete eye exam involves a series of tests designed to evaluate your vision and check for eye diseases. Each test performed by your trusted optometrists and opticians at Brahm & Powell Guild Opticians during an eye exam evaluates a different aspect of your vision. Our comprehensive eye exams are performed in house by the optometrists of Alexandria Eye Care: Dr. Matthew Stich, Dr. Margaret Johnson, and Dr. Alison Sinyai.

Contrary to what many people believe, during a comprehensive eye exam, our eye doctors do much more than just determine your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses. Our Alexandria VA opticians will also check your eyes for common eye diseases, assess how your eyes work together as a team and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health. Early diagnosis and treatment of eye and vision problems are important for maintaining good vision and eye health, and when possible, preventing vision loss. Additionally, some medical conditions such as arthritis, diabetes and heart disease, as well as certain medications, can affect eye health. It is important to discuss your medical history, and medication that you are taking with your eye doctor in order to receive proper treatment.

Among the many procedures involved in a comprehensive Alexandria eye exam, the optometrists of Brahm & Powell will perform the following: Visual Acuity Test, Color Deficiency Test, Cover Test, Retinoscopy, Refraction, Slit-Lamp Examination, Tonometry or Glaucoma Test, and a Visual Field Test. Occasionally, you will receive a dilated eye exam or a diabetic eye exam, which allows the doctor to see the back of your eye and investigate the possibility of damage to the blood vessels, the back of the eye and the optic nerve due to diabetes.
