Living with vision impairment takes some work. For those who live with nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or any other visual acuity issue, it becomes necessary to visit an eye doctor as regularly as possible. Updating your optical prescription becomes a routine, but sometimes we can forget or even notice changes between visits. Whenever the symptoms arise, it is important that an appointment is made with an eye doctor. Here at Brahm & Powell Opticians our Alexandria eye doctors are here to monitor your eye health as well as your visual acuity.
Sometimes a change in vision can happen so gradually that it is actually not that noticeable. The change occurs over a long period time and the difference in visual sharpness is not made as clear without having a test done. But there are some smaller symptoms that may indicate an out of date optical prescription and our Alexandria eye doctors here at Brahm & Powell Opticians can help. You may have an out of date lens prescription if you find yourself squinting often, have trouble focusing, find that objects at different distances are blurry (depending on whether you are far sighted or near sighted), suffer from frequent headaches or a constant headache, or feel constant or regular eye strain. All of these symptoms are telling you that your eyes are working overtime in order to see clearly.
Sometimes your prescription can change slowly over time, so these symptoms may not be very noticeable at first. Regular visits with an eye doctor can help identify any of these visual changes, even if they are small. The smallest change in the magnification of your glasses or contact lenses can mean a world of difference. Our Alexandria eye doctors can provide you with a thorough visual examination, testing your eyes’ motor function as well as their visual acuity.
Our Alexandria eye doctors will test your vision with your current prescription lenses. If your eyes fail the visual acuity test provided you, then they will fit you with a new prescription. Schedule an appointment with us at Brahm & Powell Opticians and update your prescription today.
