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.

Not feeling terribly motivated to take time out of your busy schedule to see the eye doctor? It’s understandable. Overtime, family and a panoply of other obligations (including medical, dental and orthodontic appoints) mean that modern life is extremely busy. When you do get a spare moment, you hardly want to use it on something boring like getting your eyes check. Well, the eye experts at Brahm & Powell Opticians — your local Alexandria optical goods store — would like to remind you of the importance of up-to-date lens prescriptions, well-fitting eyeglasses and routine exams. Though all of the above may seem like optional luxuries, they’re actually indispensible. Here’s why.

Let’s start with a couple of obvious reasons for coming into Brahm & Powell Opticians for regular appointments and for keeping your prescriptions current. First off, if your prescription isn’t up-to-date, it means you’re not seeing as clearly as you should be. This doesn’t only make activities like reading more difficult and uncomfortable; it also makes activities like driving and (depending on your place of employment) working unsafe. Of course, the eye experts at your local Alexandria optical goods store know you’d never want to hurt anyone on purpose, but this is the risk you run going about your daily activities with a visual acuity deficit. Second — and this is related to the first — your vision also suffers if your frames have taken a beating and aren’t fitting your face like they used to. When the lenses in your glasses aren’t positioned correctly in relation to your eyes, the result is optical distortion, which, again, can be a danger to yourself and others. (It should be noted, however, that wearing the wrong prescription will cause permanent damage to your eye. This is a myth.)

A less obvious, but no less serious, reason to visit the eye doctor regularly is so that you can be sure to discover and treat glaucoma, retinal degeneration and other dangerous conditions as early as possible. Now do you see the importance of regular eye exams? We knew you would. Come into the office of Brahm & Powell Opticians — your local Alexandria optical goods store — as soon as possible.
