Product Description

Product Description

Digital data streams at you all day, every day.  From computer screens to cell phones, PDA’s to blackberries, the relentless visual assault is frying your eyes.  Now there’s a solution for even the most demanding digital user.   GUNNAR Digital Performance Eyewear helps computer users be more productive and more effective throughout the day.  Our performance eyewear line also helps prevent Digital Eye Fatigue (DEF) and protects against Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS), a visual condition that negatively impacts millions of computer users each year. Constant stress on the eyes causes the symptoms of DEF and CVS, which include blurred vision, eye strain, dry eyes, double vision, light sensitivity, eye fatigue and headaches.  The American Optometric Association estimates that 125 million computer users suffer from some form of CVS.   Every year vision disorders account for more than $8 billion in lost productivity and can decrease employee performance by as much as 20 percent according to research published by the Vision Council of America. GUNNAR Optiks offers digital performance eyewear that gives you a visual advantage by making you more productive and more effective for longer periods of time. It all begins with i-AMP lens technology, a patented optical platform that incorporates proprietary lens materials, lens tints, lens coatings and lens geometry. GUNNAR Optiks focuses on both function and style - designed for the sophisticated, image-conscious digital user. 

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.

Attache Phenom
Subtle style meets high performance in the Attache collection. The Phenom design features a frame made of lightweight Mg-Al alloy treated to a rich anodized finish. And treat yourself to added comfort with adjustable nose pads and resilient spring hinges -- perfect for people who need to put on and remove their glasses frequently.

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.

Now at the end of the day my eyes are no longer red or tired.
Santiago J. Otero
I rely on them so much I'm almost tempted to buy a second pair in case something happens to the glasses that I own now.

I was really impressed by the quality of these glasses: they are very nicely made.

I've had these for about 1.5 years now, and use them every day. I suffer from migraines induced by light sensitivity and am especially vulnerable when exposed to bright white light. As someone whose work involves computer science, staring at a screen for hours on end resulted in daily headaches. These glasses, however, have greatly reduced the frequency of my migraines. I rely on them so much I'm almost tempted to buy a second pair in case something happens to the glasses that I own now. If you don't suffer from headaches or experience computer-related eyestrain, these are probably unnecessary; my husband did try them on once and enjoyed them, however.

Aesthetically, the frame is very nice but the lenses are rather bizarre. I get some strange looks every now and then, but couldn't care less because the glasses help so much!

Don't worry that the glasses will be damaged during shipping - they come in a sturdy case which is itself inside a strong cardboard box. A cleaning cloth is also included.

I am a mechanical designer so that involves viewing computer screens for 40+ hrs a week (business days). Between my two LCDs and the office lights, my eyes were extremely tired constantly. I found it took longer to change focus between near and far objects. My eyes also developed this... twitching that seemed to not go away. Well, long story short, I got these glasses and have been wearing them for about 2 weeks, and no more twitching.

I don't know if it is just a mental thing like those "power bracelets" or whatever other infomercial crap (at least that's what I thought of at first), but these do seem to work for me.

The frame appears to be metal (magnetic) and powder-coated silver (mercury color frame). Lenses appear to be of quality with stated coating. Overall, a good investment for my eyes.

These computer optic anti-fatique glasses are a necessary hardware for the person who spends hours on the computer. I have been in an active career search for the last 12 months so countless hours have been spent on the computer. BEFORE: my eyes grew very tired and headaches occurred on almost a daily basis. AFTER: my eyes are less fatiqued and headaches have been reduced tremendously.

Pro: confortable, monitor vision has improved, eye fatique reduced tremendously.

Con: Pricey.

I wish the other lines of glasses from Gunnar were less expensive and if they were I would own other pairs FOR SURE!

Bottom Line Up Front: Gunnar eyewear delivers a stylish and quality product that performs as advertised. I'm a demanding customer and was skeptical of the manufacturer's claims on this product. I researched this product for many weeks. Gizmodo , [...] and others gave this product very good reviews and by all means is well warranted.
I have a 20/20 vision and want to keep it that way. This eyewear has helped me reduced the strain and discomfort my eyes were exposed to daily. Now at the end of the day my eyes are no longer red or tired.

PRO: Quality product. Well made and stylish. It delivers all the manufacturer's claims.
CON: Could be pricy but can be had at a discount. Search around and you'll find a good deal.

I'm extremely pleased and will recommend this product to any person that spends many hours looking at a computer screen. This is money well spent.
