Prescription Eyeglasses Alexandria

Are you seeing as clearly and comfortably as you could be? At our optical store in Alexandria, Brahm & Powell Opticians, we provide our customers with the tools and eye wear accessories that they need to keep their vision crisp, clear and comfortable, as well as keep their eyes as healthy as possible. Customers love our varied options when it comes to specialty eyeglass lens coatings. Lens coatings can make a huge difference in how you see the world each day. For example, now that summer is fast approaching and spending time outdoors is becoming more and more ideal, you may find it helpful to have your eyeglass lenses coated with ultraviolet protection. Ultraviolet rays can be very harmful to your eyes, especially if your eyes have been exposed to them for an extended amount of time. UV ray exposure enhances the risk of developing a number of common eye conditions later in life, such as cataracts and macular degeneration.

Another useful lens coating available from our optical store in Alexandria is our anti-reflective coating. Reflections while driving and doing other basic activities can be highly distracting and can seriously impede your ability to see clearly. Anti-reflective coatings eliminate these irritating reflections, and also allow others to see your eyes more clearly through your glasses, improving the aesthetics of your frames as well as their functionality. If you are concerned about keeping your eyeglasses protected, or perhaps if you have a child that wears eyeglasses, you may want to consider investing in our scratch-resistant coating. This special coating decreases the risk of scratching or damaging your lenses, making them more durable and long lasting. These are only some of the many options when it comes to lens coating here at our optical store in Alexandria. We would love to make more personalized recommendations for your needs during your next visit to Brahm & Powell Opticians.

Rec Spec Eyewear 22314

We all like to look hip and trendy in our sunglasses but our sun and sports eyewear serve other purposes besides looking good and blocking out the sun’s harmful rays. Sunglasses can be prescription or non-prescription and worn for walking, driving, on the beach or other outdoor activities but when you wear sunglasses to participate in sports activities, there are definitely specific sunglasses intended for certain sports. Many designers have also blended their fashionable good looks with a functional, sports-minded lens. At our Alexandria eyewear store, we can help you find some of your favorite designer sunglasses, and sports eyewear to be worn while playing your preferred sport. If you don’t see your designer of choice displayed in our optical gallery, please let us know and we will do our best to get them for you.

Rec Specs has been the leader in the growing national movement that promotes eye safety during scholastic and recreational sports. Rec Specs were introduced in 1978 as the first Rx-able protective sports eyewear and you can find them in the optical gallery at our Alexandria eyewear store. Today there are over 20,000 eye care professionals, nationally and internationally, who rely on Rec Specs when it pertains to providing the best possible protective sports eyewear to both children and adults.

As sports participation statistics continue to escalate, and new “extreme” sports gain in popularity, the number of athletes who fall victim to eye injuries has the potential to grow at shocking rates. School-aged competitors are particularly inclined to eye injuries since their athletic skills (balance, hand-eye coordination, speed, and reaction time) are still being developed. However, regardless of an individual’s age or skill level, every athlete’s eyes, unfortunately, become targets for injuries. Research has shown that, under most circumstances, at least 90% of sports-related eye injuries are preventable with the proper use of protective sports eyewear. Most Rec Specs are tested to withstand the ASTM F803 impact resistant standards for racquetball, handball, basketball, paddleball, squash, and tennis, when fitted with polycarbonate lenses. Other Rec Specs designs available at our Alexandria eyewear store can be used during water activities like swimming and jet skiing and winter sports like snowboarding and skiing.
