I ordered this for my girlfriend. I have a pair of Gunnars which cost a little over 10 times more. Since they are both intended to be used for gaming / in front of a computer I feel that its fair to compare them, but just know the gunnars cost a lot more.

Here's a comparison between the two:

1.Quality of the frame is ok. It's pretty much the same you'd find at a thrift store, its not too cheap but its nothing spectacular. Gunnars are much better in this regard

2. I feel these lenses are TOO yellow. Both the gunnar and these have yellow lenses but these have a noticeably darker tint.

3. Gunnars have a slight magnification so when you wear them, things are actually magnified and are larger. It's not that much of a magnification, but these have even less or I suspect no magnification at all.

3. DO NOT BUY THESE FOR IPS based screens. You have been warned. If these were for myself, I would definitely give it two stars. Since the tint is so dark yellow on these, it seems that IPS panels will make the picture look very yellow. Most of my monitors use IPS panels (such as Dell U3011, Dell 2007FP, HP ZR22W.)

My girlfriend's primary monitor doesn't seem to be IPS so on this monitor, the yellow tint is acceptable and relaxing just like the gunnars, albeit a bit darker.

For the price, this item is acceptable for use with a glossy type screen.

* another poster had mentioned that this effect happens on IPS monitors, I thought it was because of anti glare coating. Thumbs up to that poster!

This isn't something you wear for hours on end in front of your computer. Let me explain.

It gets very blurry, and I wouldn't be surprised if this can actually impair your vision from prolonged use. The damped brightness from the glasses dilates your pupils and hurts your eyes after taking the glasses off in bright light. DO NOT treat this as sunglasses - they do not protect against UV (obviously, but just saying).

Looks are negligible, as you probably wouldn't wear them outside. They look... decent for a 5 dollar product.

Do they serve their purpose though? Yes... but not as how you'd think they do.
This is how I use them:
After doing work in front of a monitor for a very long time, my eyes start to strain. When they do, I put these on for, say, 5 to 10 minutes and take them off. These things ACTUALLY work for reducing eye strain after putting them on. But if you keep them on for any longer than 10 minutes, you still get eye strain. Remove them though, your eyes readjust and the eye strain is gone. Rinse and repeat.

I haven't tried gaming with these, because I haven't had any time yet. Will update this review if anything fruitful comes out of these things.

Overall, for 5 dollars, they can reduce eye strain - but not as how you'd expect them to. Good little things to have. I contemplated returning them, but I changed my mind after I found that they actually work.


Edit (about two weeks later):
After having these in my possession for around two weeks, I firmly believe that this is a MUST-HAVE item for everyone who works even moderately in front of a computer screen. It truly works wonders. The eye strain disappears so quickly after putting them on.

I was a bit skeptical at the beginning but I am finally convinced it was a good purchase. They do help working in front of the computer for longer times without getting so tired. At first, things look yellow but a few minutes later you don't notice at all.
Games also look nicer wen I wear these.

I spend hours on end playing LOL (Great gane btw) and after 2 matches, my eyes begin to burn. After putting on the glasses, my eyes began to feel better again. I kid you not, this CAN enhance your skills.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Deal January 18, 2013

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was sent the Aviator style instead of the Wayfayer style that I ordered - but I'm not the least bit disappointed (Even though they look BEYOND dorky...borderline ridiculous.) What matters is they fit perfectly, and are nice and lightweight, I hardly realize I have them on.

I wasn't expecting much for what I paid. In fact, I assumed I would be throwing these out not long after I tried them. But they work surprisingly and amazingly well for what they are. They are great for reducing eye strain on the computer. Not sure about gaming or watching television, since I haven't tried for those purposes yet, but I'm sure it will work just fine for those activities.

For 5 bucks, this is an excellent deal. The only thing I can complain about is that compared to another brand I've bought on Amazon, called: "Almost Invisible Frame-less Computer Reading Glasses Gaming From 0.00 to +3.00"...these make my vision a bit too dark yellow by contrast. Although this does help with protecting your eyes from bright white screens more effectively since it is darker. With the other brand, they're basically like slightly tinted reading glasses, but the tradeoff with those is you can see all colors without problems. That factor shouldn't be dismissed by those who want glasses that wont distort colors for movie, video game, and media viewing. Those ones also had a + 1.00 diopter to help zoom in the magnification a bit. But for people with normal eyes, you don't need magnification, so this is a better and cheaper choice in my opinion. These are much more comfortable than those ones too and have huge lens: which I enjoy very much, so that my entirety of my eye sockets are covered.

Of course, I'm describing the Aviator style they sell - which isn't even the one I ordered.
