  • diAMIX lens material - a custom blended proprietary polymer, which beats out polycarbonate on the toughness scale and rivals the undisputed optics of ground glass.
  • fRACTYLlens geometry - custom designed to provide focusing power that eases eye strain.  The wrapped lenses also reduce air flow around the eye, creating a microclimate with increased moisture levels. 
  • i-FIlens coatings ? anti-glare coatings that filter out harsh artificial reflected light.
  • iONIK lens tint - Specially formulated tints condition and shift the color spectrum to provide superior contrast, detail and resolution.
  • Frame Design - built for visual endurance, GUNNAR frame systems are engineered for optimal weight, comfort and durability.

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 Bit Surfer
Bit Surfer's rimless, wide format optics feature a sleek angular lens outline. Flexible polymeric temples conform to a variety of face shapes. Featherweight and ultra-high definition, the Bit Surfer supports the i-AMPTM enabled lenses in a perfect wearable position.

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.

Gunnar Optiks, a new company, never heard of before, just recently came out with these glasses, supposedly reducing eye strain and improving productivity on the computer.

If your a person who sits at your computer for many hours at a time, I would certainly recommend these if your having eye strain or persistent headaches from viewing your monitor.

For the most part, I only use them at night, as eye strain tends to go up due to the decreased room brightness and since I haven't had any headaches or eye strain since using the glasses I can honestly say they work for me.

Fashionably speaking, you wouldn't want to be walking around the office with these on but on that same note, you wouldn't want to be walking around with these on in the first place as the curved lens will make you a bit dizzy when walking.

So, should I buy these? These glasses aren't right for everybody, as said above, I would only recommend these if you spend long hours on the computer, programming, hardcore gaming etc... Otherwise, the average person probably doesn't need these.

I've tried many types of eyes protection glasses but non of them gave my eyes a relief similar to this one, tend to give a yellowish tent, very light weight and comes in a cool box.
