GUNNAR Computer glasses are designed to make your eyes not have to work so hard. Your eyes work hard all day and, spending hours in front of a digital device can be additionally hard on the eye muscles. GUNNAR'S exclusive design blocks blue light and reduces eyestrain while increasing contrast, protection, and focus. The result: improved clarity, comfort and performance.
How They Work
- Lens focusing power removes the eye muscle strain and keeps eyes feeling fresh.
- Amber lenses filter high frequency blue light that can cause both short-term and long-term issues.
- Frame and lens designs hold in humidity and reduce dry eyes and irritation to ease eye strain.
- Amber lenses add contrast to help sharpen characters and shapes on your screen.
- Anti-reflective lens coatings eliminate glare and visual distractions to the eye.
Digital Eye Strain also called Computer Vision Syndrome is a condition resulting from focusing the eyes on a computer screen for extended periods of time. Symptoms can include headaches, blurred vision, neck pain, fatigue, eye strain, dry eyes, irritated eyes, double vision, vertigo/dizziness, polyopia, and difficulty refocusing the eyes. These symptoms can be further aggravated by blue light exposure.
Blue light radiated from digital screens reaches deeper into the eye and its cumulative effect can cause damage to the retina and can cause the development of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Blue light has also been linked to cataracts and sleep disorders.
I recommend my patients take proactive measures to protect their vision from all the digital screens they look at. The easiest but most unrealistic solution is to stop or limit using digital devices. The realistic approach is to recommend or prescribe computer glasses to take that strain out of the eyes. Glasses with a slight amount of magnification to take the strain off the eyes along with anti glare and blue light tint to absorb the blue light emitted from electronics. -Dr Eric White O.D.
Blue light can cause:
- Age related macular degeneration
- Slower metabolism
- Disrupted melatonin levels

Background if you are interested:
Back in the 1990's a bought a pair of computer glasses online and they were phenomenal. They took eyestrain to near zero levels and they were clear, no yellow or orange tint. (Which I find objectionable) But they were $250+ and prescription and got damaged, and the coating started to wear off. However when they were new, they were the ultimate. I've been trying to find a pair that equals them for 20 years.
These Gunnar glasses help, I'm not seeing blurry or double vision like I was before when using the computer, but they are not as good as what I've used in the past.
Also the clarity of the plastic seems a little off. I keep cleaning them but they just don't seem clean to me.
I also bought two pair of really cheap ones to compare. GAMMA RAY Optics 007 Computer Gaming Reading Glasses with Semi Rimless Frame Magnification and Anti Blue Light Anti Glare UV400 for TV Monitor Screens Orange and Cyxus Blue Light Filter Semi-rimless Glasses, [Transparent Lens] Anti Eyestrain Computer Reading Glasses (Black Half-Rim Frame). The first ones are the dark orange and they help. The second ones also help and the lenses are clear. Both help with the eye strain. The Gunnar lenses seem a little more optically clear than the cheaper lenses but are not like real glasses as far as purity of the lens is concerned.
For the FRAME and how it fits my face I say the Gunnar are about a 50% and the Gamma Ray are about 80%. The Cyrus's are also very comfortable. However fit is very subjective and everyone has their own face/headt. I think the Gunnar are a bit narrower whereas the Gamma Ray are wider and fit my face better. The nose bridge on these Gunnar's (which is very pronounced compared to other frameless glasses) bothers me a little bit. These are critiques of the flames.
The lens size is too small for me and the nose bridge is too big for me. My eyes see the sides and bottoms of the lenses as well as the bridge. This is really a fitting thing, but larger lenses would work better.
I'm still looking for a better pair, I will be returning these because for the price, I can buy3 pairs of the cheaper ones.
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.
After daily use in office setting, they do not show any scratches. I had another popular pair that had a deep gouge the same day I opened the package, so this is a nice feature (true scratch resistance).
They do not make the whole world seem yellow so much as they make the whole world seem very blue when you take them off before your eyes can adjust. It's not an overwhelming tint, in other words. Yet, my eyes feel much more rested after long bouts of computer work.
They have just a hint of magnification. I was prescribed +.50 bifocals that are still too strong to be useful to me but the eye doctor felt that was necessary to reduce my eye strain. Turns out, the blue-light blocking of these and their minor magnification is exactly what I needed. Also, I required no adjustment, no "Okay, now I feel dizzy" periods - My eyes didn't have to get used to these glasses.
The price at $70-$80. But, you know, I have a $400+ pair of special coated, special material, graduated bifocal glasses from an eye doctor that don't feel any more expensive than these Gunnars and they actually do not help my eye strain and headaches like the Gunnars. The price feels fair to me comparatively.
Furthermore, one of my favorite things about gunnars is the frame. I typically don't wear glasses because most frames make my face look boxy or just don't fit (I have a wider head). However, I've been using the Emmissary for years. They're both function and give a good sharp look :)
