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 But there are some smaller symptoms that may indicate an out of date optical prescription and our Alexandria eye doctors here at Brahm & Powell Opticians can help. You may have an out of date lens prescription if you find yourself squinting often, have trouble focusing, find that objects at different distances are blurry (depending on whether you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.

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.
