Why Sunglasses?
Everyone enjoys a bright, sunny day and soaking up some vitamin D, but the effect of all that sunlight on the eyes is a not a cheerful topic. UV and glare can create a variety of issues, from dangerous “snow blindness” to irreversible disorders that threaten your eyesight. Here are some frequently asked questions about the value of sunglasses and how they protect your eyes from harmful properties. Dr. Brodie’s staff can answer all your questions and style you with the perfect pair of prescription sunglasses.

How does UV affect unprotected eyes?
UV rays can cause cataracts which is causes proteins inside the lens to become cloudy or opaque. Cataracts can impair night vision, reduce your ability to see colors, and make reading difficult. Once the damage is done there no way of reversing the condition, only removal of them will correct this. UV exposure can also cause retinal damage, changes in eye tissues, and a temporary sunburn that leaves the eyes irritated. At Brodie Optometry, our knowledgeable staff will fit you for authentic lenses with polarization based on your prescription.

What are polarized lenses?
Polarized lenses cut glare and haze so your eyes are more comfortable and you can see more clearly. Polarized lenses contain a special filter that blocks this type of intense reflected light, reducing glare from horizontal surfaces when sunlight bounces off from an upward position. They are recommended for tasks such as boating, fishing, skiing, golfing, jogging and driving. We offer a variety of colors in polarized lenses to fit the frame of choice and your personal style!

  • I took both of my children ages 7 and 9. They had never been to an eye doctor before other than screenings at school. The staff and doctor were wonderful. They explained everything they were doing to them and eased there minds. They were afraid when we first came but left with smiles on there faces and were excited to get their new glasses. Would highly recommend Dr Brodie’s office.

  • I have been going to Dr. Brodie for many years and I am never disappointed. He is very personable and is patient with my daughter when checking her eyes. I love the selection of frames also. I live almost on the Michigan border and have no problem driving to Perrysburg for eye appointments.

  • The staff is friendly the eye exam is very detailed. Wait time the last few times I have been there has been a bit long, but that’s what happens when you are waiting for a good eye exam. I have been to other places and they have been awful mostly in the box stores. Literally 5 minute eye exams in and out.


    ~ Michael J. Roe
  • Dr Brodie is the best. He has all of the special equipment to make evaluations and treat his patients His staff is knowledgeable, considerate and friendly. It doesn’t get much better than that. Thank you very much for taking good care of Deb and I we appreciate you very much.

  • Very professional, very clean, great aesthetic, friendly, and concise! They were very busy, but had people moving along. I had to exercise a little patience, unlike most people being capable of such a discipline anymore…

    I attribute the wait to a business that is known for doing good business – treating people right, doing their job right, and maintaining their status in their industry.

    Brodie Optometry is excellent.

  • Starting this (Sensory Learning Program) I wasn’t sure what the outcome would be. To me “J” never had a big disability or problem, but something just wasn’t right and we never knew what it was. His eyes have made great improvements with tracking and he tells us how much easier it is for him to sound out words and blend them together. We notice little changes but more important, how he feels has made it all worth it! That he feels different and better makes my heart happy! 

    ~ J's Mom
  • I was having a hard time wearing glasses while playing baseball. Dr. Brodie fit me with contacts and now I am hitting the ball out of the park. Thanks Dr. Brodie!
