The colder months of every year involve changing with it, and while retiring your favorite bathing suits and sandals may be a painful part of this for many of us, not all of your accessories should be stored away until you can get your natural tan again. Sunglasses are an absolute necessity at any and every time of the year. Even on cloudy days, UV rays are still prevalent, meaning that you can still become sun burned, and you can still experience damage to the organs of your eyes. Whether you need your vision corrected, or see with perfect clarity, you can find the sunglasses you need to keep your eyes healthy at your local Alexandria discount eyewear store of the Brahm & Powell Opticians.
Sunglasses are an important feature at any time of the year. While photochromic lenses are a great idea for those who work outside and cannot afford two pairs of sunglasses, many of us often find that photochromic lenses do not make driving any easier. This is because the coating which exists on most windshields today blocks enough UV rays to stop your lenses from working, and yet not enough to protect your eyes. Sunglasses are important for safe driving, and become especially vital in the winter months if you live anywhere where snow or ice accumulates. Frozen precipitation in all of its forms refracts the light back off of its surface, causing blinding rays off of snow banks, and icy roads to be as dangerous on your tires as they are on your eyes. Short daylight hours that occur for many of us in the more Northern regions of the United States also means the sun is more often in your eyes when driving back and forth to work than it is over your head. Our team at your trusted Alexandria discount eyewear retailer carries a wide selection of sunglasses with special polarized lenses that work to reduce glare for clear vision and safer driving all year round.
Optical protection in your eyes is about more than seeing clearly in all levels of light, UV rays from the sun can cause harm to your eyes even as the right amounts are healthy for our bodies. Exposure to radiation such as that from sun light is just one of the risk factors of developing optical diseases that cause permanent and total vision loss, such as cataracts. To protect your eyes from harm be sure to wear sunglasses that block only 100% of all UV rays, including UVA, UVB, and UVC. Our team of fully licensed and professionally trained staff at your professional Alexandria discount eyewear store of Brahm & Powell Opticians offers a wide selection of beautiful sunglasses at great prices to keep your eyes healthy and seeing clearly 365 days of the year.
