In short, this works I would buy it again. I do not wear contacts or glasses and have 20/20 vision
The long story: I bought the MLG Phantom and the VAYPER before I finally settled on these. out of the 3 this one happens to be the most comfortable even though looking at the images you wouldn't think so. The other models actually irritated my eyes, and I have no idea why. they also were very uncomfortable on my nose and I felt they left too much of my field of view uncovered. this model though cheaper, fits me better, covers all the field of view I care about, and even with headphones on it still comfortable.
as for the promise of eye strain, yes it works. I bought these for that sole reason because the last couple of years I've had to stop playing some of the games I wanted because I couldn't bare it, my headache and eyestrain would go through the roof and even web surfing and reading on the computer was a forced chore that I had to endure for school. but with these, when I start getting eyestrain I put these on and it goes away.
don't let the yellow tint throw you off, once you get used to them you honestly do not notice it while gaming. you just completely forget that their is a tint, until you take them off. then everything looks shockingly blue when you do.
so again, they are comfortable, fit my head, I like them, they look cool, and they really do work. don't use these if your not sitting close to the screen though far off objects get slightly blurry. I am %100 happy with these, however DO NOT get these without ordering microfiber cloths and lens wipes/cleaner because they scratch easy and they get dirty way too easy. I use Zeiss wipes because they work and dry faster than most other wipes minimizing streaks.
These still work, and still get dirty waayy too easy. I try to clean them as few times as necessary because some minor scratches are starting to happen. You will never get these clean without a cloth and i suggest taking any measures you can to avoid getting scratches on the lens by blowing the dust off with compressed air before wiping the lens down with anything.
One thing ive noticed thats new to me, but apparently common to anyone who wears glasses: is that your eyes get tired, especially under the eyes in the bags. Its not eyestrain or anything you experience from looking at a monitor, just something related to the broad catagory of wearing glasses in general. It doesnt cause a headache, it doesnt disrupt your gameplay or reading, nor make your life hel* like eyestrain does, however it has made me want to go to sleep early on some nights.
I would buy these again if i lost these.
i menaged to find a hardcase that fit thes: http://www.amazon.com/Sunglass-Case-Sunglasses-Eyeglasses-Investments/dp/B00C9TVL8K/ref=cm_cr-mr-title
this does a better job than the included white cloth bag at keeping them clean. the gunnar hardcase is too small. finally, why was this review not helpful to 3 people? you should leave a comment about how i can be of more help
so how i use them nowadays is this: normally i don't wear them unless i'm having any of the above issues, and then i put them on. and so far that seems to stop the issues when i need it. if however, i wear them when i don't have issues...i seem to get issues. i don't count this as a negative because my purpose in buying them was to stop the issues when they occured, and that they do. other than that nothing new to report.
