The lenses on these glasses scratched so easily. I'm a glasses wearer and have had an anti-reflective coating with a scratch resistant coating on all of my glasses for the past 5 years (probably 6 pair). I've never scratched a lens within the typical one year warranty period of my prescription glasses. The GUNNAR i-Fi(tm) lens coatings are supposed to be scratch resistant, but the lenses still scratched even though I only used lens cloth intended for use on AR lenses. I contacted Gunnar and they said, "If you feel that the scratch impairs your vision and you would like the lens replaced, we can replace the lens for 25% of the retail price."

The frames are light and comfortable enough that you don't notice that you're wearing them, but I didn't notice much of a difference with the clarity of text on my computer nor a reduction in eyestrain. All things considered, I don't feel that these glasses are worth the premium that you have to pay especially considering the poor support that Gunnar offers for their product. These glasses cost nearly as much as my prescription glasses even though they are not custom made, so I would expect a similar warranty, however this is not the case. These glasses may help some in the way described, but be aware of what to expect from Gunnar if you do purchase them.

I saw reviews on youtube and read various reviews on Amazon. I even read some articles on reputable sites like Ars Technica. So I did my homework before purchasing these.

Some people claim it changed their lives. For me, I see no difference.

I squint less, but other than that my eyes are just as fatigued and dry as always.

One thing that I do like about the glasses is that they are very light. You don't even feel them. Lightest pair I have owned in my life. While this is a boon to me, it also makes the glasses feel unbelievably cheap in terms of construction. I'm guessing it doesn't take much to break these. Sit on them by accident and you can say good-bye.

These may work for you or they may not. For me, it's too expensive to take the gamble. As for those that claim it works wonders, I wonder if it's just the placebo effect or a guilt effect of wanting such an expensive pair of glasses to work, then again, it might work for some, but it didn't do anything for me.

EDIT: After using these for a month, I can say that they do make a huge difference. I don't squint as much and my eyes are not as tired. I guess I just had to get used to them. They are light and help much. I give it four stars bc I think they over priced nonetheless.

Love the Gunnar brand computer eyewear. The difference I have experienced while working in an office environment with fluorescent lighting and 4 computer monitors is nothing short of amazing. I've gotten so used to them it's a bit awkward to take them off during my work day. The glasses are light and comfortable making them almost unnoticeable other than the thin frames.

My only gripe, minor, is I have a larger face and they don't fit as well as I had hoped. I've since sold these to a co-worker in favor of buying some of the larger frames sold by Gunnar.

These really help with the eye fatigue we were experiencing. We now have 3 pair and use them all the time. If you are getting blurred vision or eyes just seem tired, these will help. very well built and hold up to lots of use. Use them with computer work, TV or video gaming.

I have an eye problem from staring at computer monitors. This has helped, but they take some getting used to because they have a slight magnification. Also they are VERY VERY flimsy!! But since I am sitting at my computer and they never leave my desk I can live with it. I understand it is so they are light and you can leave them on your face for hours, but still. They should try carbon fiber, I have a pair of eyeglasses made of CF and they are just as light but very strong.

I never wanted a job that had me stuck in front of a computer all day, but in this economy you take what you can get. So, after a year of staring at a pair of computer monitors, the headaches and the dry eyes finally got to be too much. I bought these glasses and the difference is night and day. No dry eyes and no headaches. Granted, I have only been using them for two days, but the difference is so profound, it is hard not to be sold on these glasses already. I like that they are lightweight. They grip my head snuggly--but not uncomfortably. I recommend these glasses to any desk jockey stuck behind a computer screen all day. They have been a lifesaver for me!

I bought the glasses after reading the reviews here, I'm a web developer and most of the time I'm looking at a computer screen. For past few years I didn't have any issues, but from few months my eyes started to hurt with headaches after 1-2 hrs of computer use, after that its really hard to work. I decided to get these and it worked well for me, I still get some sort of dryness in the eyes, but not like before. It makes your screen bit zoomed and yellowish. You can't use the glasses for out door or such because long distance will become blurred.

I purchased these in March and wore them at work for about six weeks. They seemed ok at first except for the effect of the amber tint on colors. I use two desktop computers and connect to several different servers an average of about 10 hours daily depending on what I happen to be working on. I had hoped to eliminate the constant headaches and eyestrain but my success was short term and limited. These would be fine for someone dealing with just monotone text on a white or black screen but not with a variety of colors and resolutions. I don't know how people use these for gaming. On the other hand, they provide excellent contrast for driving in inclement weather. I discussed this wtih my Opthalmologist and he said the ideal lens for computer use is a high quality anti reflective lens with either a light neutral gray or no tint. He did support the optical design of the Gunnars so I may try a pair with crystalline lenses or have a pair made with Crizal Sapphire UV lenses. I'm leaning toward the Gunnars as the more cost effective solution. The Gunnar certainly has unique technology well suited for computer use. If in doubt, check out the company's web site for an in-depth explanation of their design.
