Your vision is our priority here at Quality Optical of Columbia. Our dedicated staff here at our Clarksville optical store
is geared to helping you navigate our wide array of vision correction options, even if you happen to have perfect vision. While your vision is subject to change as you get older, there are other risk factors that may affect how well you see as well as the overall health of your eyes. A yearly exam with our optometrist or ophthalmologist can help ensure that your eyes and vision are in perfect working order, but they can also dispense some invaluable advice about keeping them that way when outside of our office.
21045 Prescription Sunglasses
Sunglasses are not just needed in the summer, but should be worn all year round. While it may feel colder, the sun’s rays are still just as strong in winter as they are during the summer months, and are just as capable of doing damage to your skin and your eyes. Harmful UV rays are present all year round, and increased exposure can actually lead to the development of cataracts or macular degeneration. Cataracts cause clouding of the lens, whereas macular degeneration is when the macula, the part of the eye that allows you to see fine detail, weakens. Both of these conditions can go unnoticed in their early stages and can also result in vision loss. Additionally, snow accumulation can create large amounts of intense sun glare, causing bright rays of sunlight to bound off of the snow’s white surfaces, making it difficult to see which is very dangerous when it comes to driving or operating other machinery. Wearing sunglasses can help protect your eyes from harmful UV rays as well as inconvenient, and potentially harmful, glare. After an initial visit with our optometrist here at Quality Optical of Columbia, our staff can help direct you to a pair of sunglasses that can help protect you all year round.
We carry a wide variety of frame styles here and are sure to have a style that suits everybody in the family here at our Clarksville optical store
. Specialty prescription sunglass frames can be crafted here to adhere to your specific vision correction needs as well as your aesthetic preferences.

Schedule a visit here at Quality Optical of Columbia and take the next step to protecting your eyes all year round.
