Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Your eyes are tired...staring at a computer for hours and hours takes its toll. The common solutions for handling eyestrain require you to modify your work habits or take numerous breaks throughout the day. They're all patchy fixes that pull you away from your work. So take your choice...digital eye fatigue or less productivity.

There is a better technology driven solution that works with and enhances properties of the human eye. Gunnar digital eyewear increases visual performance, prevents Digital Eye Fatigue (DEF) and protects against full-blown Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS). It all begins with i-AMP lens technology -- an optical platform that incorporates proprietary lens materials, lens tints, lens coatings, and lens geometry. Gunnar digital performance eyewear is engineered for an immediate and profound visual advantage and now even the most demanding computer users are more productive and more effective for longer periods of time. Gunnar Digital Performance Eyewear -- the must have digital performance equipment for your digital lifestyle.

Catalyst Edge
A fast and sleek lens profile, Edge gives a rimless and unencumbered view of the digital world. Integrated modular frame with sculpted metal hinges create the optimal ergonomics for long sessions in front of the screen.

i-FI lens coatings
i-Fi lens coatings filter and protect. Our proprietary nano-filters help capture all of the good light coming from the computer screen while diffusing the bad reflective light and glare. The outer coating provides a protective layer that shields the lens from scratching, abrasion, and oxidation damage.

fRACTYL lens geometry
Computer generated fRACTYL lens geometry mimics nature through advanced science and engineering. Aiding the natural focusing power of the cornea, our lens geometry eases eyestrain caused by near distance computer viewing. fRACTYL lens geometry uses independently curved front and back surfaces to provide unparalleled distortion-free optics. Fused with Gunnar frames, the tightly arced lenses form a personal ocular microclimate that prevents dry eyes.

iONik lens tints
iONik lens tints take harsh artificial light and precisely tune it to match the anatomy of the eye. Our custom organic dye compounds condition and shift transmitted light into the preferred color spectrum, increasing visual contrast, detail and resolution. Edges of screen pixilated images read more easily and interfering blue light is reduced -- ultimately your eyes are less fatigued.

diAMIX lens material
No existing lens material had all the properties we needed. So we gave our lab techs the task of developing the lightest, most optically pure lens material possible. Beating out polycarbonate on the toughness scale and rivaling the undisputed optics of ground glass, diAMIX is the next generation of lens materials for those that demand the highest optical qualities.

They look flimsy but are far from it, they are sturdy and very well made.
Erin Zimmerman
Contrast is increased, and the overall screen looks sharper and easier to read text.

If you want a good pair of glasses for driving, these are just about perfect.

Color Name: Onyx Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
First, a disclaimer: I'm an Optical Technician. I dispense glasses for a living, so I know good eyewear when I see it.

Now, the review: This is good eyewear. It's a quality pair of glasses with all the right enhancements to do exactly what they claim they can do. Specifically, this is a pair of glasses with a +.50 add correction on the lenses, so they do magnify just a tiny bit, but are still comfortable for someone with no prescription for corrective lenses. They have a high-quality gold tint that naturally blocks some of the harsh blues from the light spectrum. They seem to be a high-quality material (I'd guess they're a hi-index, but not a premium brand) and have an anti-reflective coating to cut down on glare from the computer screen (or they'd work equally well when driving).

The frame itself is of excellent quality. I wouldn't say it's a high-end frame, but it's certainly good material and a pleasing design. Nothing cheap here. It's a drill-dot frame, and as such could be prone to loosening or breaking if the end user doesn't know how to properly care for them, though. The included instructions don't tell the user HOW to clean them; Only WHAT to clean them with (the included microfiber cloth).

In case you're wondering what I mean, here's my free advice for owners of these glasses (or any rimless drill-dot frames) - When cleaning your lenses, hold the lens between your cloth-covered thumb and index finger ONLY, and then gently rub the lens you're holding between those fingers. Do NOT hold onto the frame in another spot with your other hand (not the bridge, Not the temples, etc.) with these sorts of frames, because the drill dots are not made to take continual stress.

So anyway, all told, this is a quality pair of glasses.

Color Name: Onyx Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I was very excited at the prospect of what the Gunnar Optiks eyewear could possibly do for me. I sit at a computer anywhere from 8 to 12 hours per day, and for me, looking at a monitor for any length of time results in headaches, and stressed, tired eyes. Could the claims that Gunnar Optiks make about it's special eyewear hold true? I was about to find out.

Upon receiving my package from the nice folks at Amazon.com, I was instantly impressed with how Gunnar Optiks handled the packaging. Inside a dense cardboard box with the Gunnar Optiks logo, lay another box, presumably some form of aluminum or tin, with a hinged lid. The glasses were pressed into a foam cutout that held them perfectly safe, and covered by a soft cloth pouch. There was no way these glasses could have been damaged during shipping, unless the package were to be run over by a vehicle or some other sort of catastrophe.

The niceties of the product packaging aside, the real question remains, do the Gunnar Optik glasses live up to their hype? Removing the glasses from their nesting place, I was instantly surprised at how lightweight they are. Considering they are crafted of polymer frames and lenses, they weren't expected to be heavy, but I didn't expect them to be quite so feather-light either. Though the glasses are constructed of "plastic", I wouldn't call them cheap feeling. I imagine they would withstand a lot more abuse than metal frames and glass lenses could, before suffering from breakage. As much as these glasses would cost to replace though, I am not about to put that theory to the test.

The amber tint of the lenses reminded me much of the shooting glasses I wear during range sessions. They seem to result in the same effect too, when looking at the computer monitor.

Color Name: Onyx Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I am a software developer who is in front of the computer for 8 hours a day. I love the way these glasses seem to enhance the text and images on the screen, and I definitely notice less fatigue on my eyes. The last 3 hours of every day is usually when the eye fatigue starts setting in, but since I've been using these, there seems to be a lot less strain.

However, there is one obnoxious thing about these glasses that is driving me crazy. The plastic part in the middle that connects the nose piece to the lenses stretches a bit too far onto the lens, so while you are wearing them it gets a little annoying to have this black thing right there in your line of sight. It's not obtrusive per se, but it is a bit distracting at times, particularly when you move your head. For as much as this product costs, I would think they would not have an issue like this. These seem to be very cheaply made overall, but I would look past that if the nose piece attachment wasn't so noticeable while wearing them.

Color Name: Onyx
Gunnar Optiks was started by a bunch of former Oakley employees. Not only am I a fan of the O.G. but I'm also a big optics enthusiast in general. You see, I have bad eyes. I don't mean I grew up reading too much so my eyes are kinda bad. That's right, I'm so old we didn't have computers when I was a kid. What I mean is my eyes are genetically flawed; so much so I'm beyond the technology available in glasses, soft contact lenses or Lasik surgery (I wear hard lenses). I'm the guy who maxes out the correction machine at the optometrist's office so they open a drawer to pull out attachments. Alright, you get it. My eyes suck. Anything remotely able to alleviate eye strain catches my attention. I really wanted to love Gunnar Optiks.

Gunnar makes some pretty lofty claims. I've had some optics experience in graduate school working for a laser diagnostics company. I spent hours in a dimly lit room with lasers and optics. That combined with intimate knowledge of corrective lenses made me a bit skeptical when a friend first introduced me to Gunnar. Years later, my curiosity got the best of me. I spend more than 10 hours a day in front of some kind of screen, monitor or iDevice and headaches were starting to become unbearable. I justified the purchase (model Edge Cloud, pictured above) as basically a glare screen for your face.

I'm not stranger to corrective optics. For the past 30+ years, it usually takes a week to fully adjust to a new prescription, especially if it's a big jump (greater than 1 diopter). I gave these things a fair shot and wore them a full week to see things got better. In short, nothing. I wore them off and on again during the next week just to make sure. Still nothing.
