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.
Full coverage. One of our largest frames, Shredder presents bold, angular lines and maximum viewable area. Three dimensional temples and precision cut frames with floating, adjustable nose pads for a customizable fit.
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.
