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.

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.
