Top Customer Reviews
The product successfully removes extreme white balances exhibited by white high color temperature fluorescent lights that cause extreme eye strain and in my case migraines. In simple terms, T8 fluorescent lights in office buildings are cheaper, per bulb, the "higher" the color temperature is and appear "brighter" just like HID lights on a car. Appearing brighter and being brighter are not the same thing. For example Blue HID lights at 9,000 color temperature are blue or violet and are not optimal for night vision. HID lights at 4,500 color temperature are optimal for long distance viewing. The same Applies with fluorescent lights in buildings. Lights that are higher color temperature are meant for 25 to 50 foot ceilings, not 15 foot ceilings. For someone with photosensitive eyes, this is a huge problem. Your eyes adjust, but at the cost of clarity and eye strain as well as mental fatigue.
Computer screens also have an issue of white balance and extreme contract variations. Ever notice most webpages have lots of white in them? The OSHA guidelines for computer user are having to be expanded because of this, and how it effects the eyes. The worse the webpage, the longer break your brain needs.
Ever notice fog-lights are yellow in Japan? Yeah, it is just JDM and looks cool....Wrong. It may look cool, but fog-lights are yellow because yellow is a lower color temperature and pierces the fog so you can see. Same thing with old style light bulbs. They may use more energy, but they do not cause eye strain because they are lower on the color strain.
My point is, give up trying to get the correct color strain and try a pair of these on. It will take time for your brain to adjust, so don't expect to see Avatar colors the first 10 seconds you have them on. You will noise after about the 3rd day at a computer screen at a cubical or desk that when you take them off, the white lights hurt your eyes and everything gets fuzzy. That is a normal reaction to white light, and it is what you have been dealing with all along.
There are 3 things this product does poorly.
This is the reason everyone made a show of their claims and poked fun at it. They didn't explain how and when to use them. If I were to do it differently, here is what I would put.
Driving at night, dusk, or dawn.
Office Cubicles with White Light
When you go from a light to dark environment or dark to light environment
When using a high contrast monitor at less than 15 feet distances
When using a monitor at night
When you have issues with people's headlights blinding you. (HIDs)
2. Product Support:
Mine developed a scratch on the coating, so I asked the company what I could do it fill it, clean them, or have them repaired. I got a support representative that emailed me the exact thing I said to them, reworded in a question. No resolution and no suggestions. That is a fail for customer support. The coating is removable so you cannot polish, clean, or fill scratches with anything but a microfiber cloth. That is the answer I found.
3. Extremely Yellow:
The company should offer a variance of the yellow balance in their product. Some people do not need the full yellow blaze these give you, just a little rounding off of the top of that color temperature range. Some people have issues with Red, so they should offer a variance of that color since it has the longest wavelength. I think if they reduced the yellow intensity by 30%, the product would not only look less yellow, but the product would do a much better job of being clear without confusing your brain into thinking everything is yellow now. Personally I do need the whole yellow these offer, so I don't mind it.
Color Temp Charts & Sources
99 Dollars is pretty cheap instead of years of eye strain, 5 years for doctors and optometrists to understand what I just described, running into things, road rage because you can't see because someone blinded you with HID lights, running into things because they are white and you don't see them, doctor's bills, headaches, specialists, co-payments, insurance issues, glasses, eye tests, medicine, and it goes on. The average co-payment is 25 to 100 dollars, so what do you have to lose?
Although Gunnars promotes the high curve of their frames, 4 of my employees, who are licensed opticians, would recommend against it. 8 Base curve, which is what the G0005 is, can distort vision and actually contribute to headaches. Since the whole point of the glasses is to eliminate those I am surprised Gunnars would take this risk.
Regardless, these frames are moderately heavy, not to bad. I am very sensitive to weight. Any sort of pressure on my nose makes my eyes water. I seem to get by just fine with these frames. SO, positives and negatives:
1. Negative - Moderate weight (compared to other lighter options)
2. Positive - 4 - 6 base curve (moderate compared to other high curved framed)
3. Positive - Medium Size frame with easy to adjust nose pads
In the end, the frame is just fine and I was happy to pay the money.
Although I will add once more. YOU MUST BEGIN SHIPPING THESE WITH A BRANDED HARD CASE. I have nowhere to store them and refuse to pay additional when it absolutely should be included since you are making a ton of money on these. Your lenses are less than 10 cents and the frame is probably 7 - 12 dollars.
Purchase over 5,000 branded hard cases from China, direct, and the cost is less than $1.00 (i do it with my company)
NO EXCUSES Gunnars.
I work in an office near Atlanta,GA that is filled with harsh fluorescent lighting and lots of computer equipment. I wear these glasses with a hat daily and have seen noticeable improvement in both my concentration, my mood, my work, and my energy level.
My workspace and gaming space at home are significantly darker than at the office but these have also helped while at home. Even watching Netflix is more enjoyable.
During my drive to work in the morning between 4 and 6 am, I wear these glasses. Not only do they help me concentrate on the road better but the insanely bright streetlights, headlights on cars (HIDs and LEDs) bother me significantly less.
The only con I have is that the frames on these are quite small. My head isn't wide by most standards (it's more oval) but that isn't a deal breaker for me.
