GUNNARS Patented Lens Technology

GUNNARS patented lens technology is designed and engineered to meet the demanding visual needs of gamers in the digital generation. GUNNARS lens design limits air currents near the eyes, increasing humidity and preventing irritation. This design enhances focus and sharpens detail to ease eye strain. The high-index lens material eliminates distortion from impurities and haze found in inferior materials to ensure the clearest image possible. The ultra light yet durable, performance optics will not degrade over time. GUNNARS proprietary lens tint filters high energy blue light and blocks UV to enhance contrast and protect eyes. The filtered spectrum replicates natural light, minimizing visual stress. Premium lens coatings reduce glare and reflective light to eliminate visual distraction and stress. An external hard coat provides extended lens durability resisting scratches. GUNNAR computer and gaming glasses are also available with custom prescription lenses.

About GUNNAR Optiks

Welcome to the Digital Generation - We are wired to a media-rich, networked world of infinite possibility. Visually connected to computers, tablets, phones and games - peering into an abyss of high-energy visible [HEV] blue light for hours can disrupt your entire system; your eyes, neck and back, circadian rhythms and overall health. Computer Vision Syndrome [CVS] has become a common problem for our digital generation. Nearly 70 percent of U. S. adults experience digital eye strain as a result of increasing use of digital devices. Cumulative exposure to HEV light can contribute to vision problems such as cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.

GUNNAR is the only patented computer eyewear recommended by doctors to protect and enhance your vision. GUNNARS alleviate all causes of digital eye strain and visual fatigue. As the world’s leader in lens technology, GUNNAR pioneered computer and gaming eyewear technology and remains the official performance glasses recommended by professional gamers globally. GUNNARS aid natural focusing to provide sharper, clearer vision, resulting in less strain on eye muscles. In addition, proprietary tints and coatings block high-energy, blue light, UV and glare to protect your vision. GUNNAR lens design frames your face to protect your eyes from exposure to dry, ambient air currents. The result - improved clarity, focus and performance that meets the demanding visual needs of a new generation.

Color: Gloss Onyx
Ok, so I've got about a week of use out of them so far and here's what I got so far.

Pros

-Do they really work? I would say yes. I had eye surgery a few years ago and my eyes would always get really dry and red after a few hours of gaming. So far, haven't had this problem since I got these and my eyes feel alot better during/after gaming/browsing/working.
-They're really lightweight and come with a microfiber-esque cloth case/sock (although some people have reported getting a hard case of some sort (got my at the gunnar website)).
-Materials and finish are both great.
-Slight tint is easy to get used to. Improves contrast.
-Frame and Arms are flexible and nose pads are said to be adjustable.
-You can have them made with a prescription. (20/20 so no need for this but comes in handy for some (: )

Cons (Some are on a personal level)

-They feel like prescription glasses in some ways, HAD to get used to them. They seem to have a slight... lets say magnification, that only works well to a certain distance (say, Chair to Monitor/Couch to TV). I walked around while wearing them for 5 minutes (after getting used to them) and I did indeed get dizzy and my eyes hurt a little.
-While materials and finish are great, some might think they feel flimsy and poorly constructed because they are thin and lightweight (but that was by design). I do NOT feel like I'm going to accidentally break these, but then again I had glasses so I know how to take care of them.
-Fit was one of the more "personal" issues with them. They do fit me (mid/large head), but the arms have a curve to them that seem like they were made for a rounder head. My ears hurt a little after a few hours. Using headphones make them a little more comfortable though.

I feel this product is definitely worth the buy. I stare at a computer all day, and these are perfect for work. They look great, and the view while they're on is actually quite neat. I've actually had nice comments from people (even though I say, "Oh, it's only temporary" haha) These glasses beat my expectations by a long shot.

I play my PS3 pretty often, along with a lot of screen time with my macbook pro as I am a college student. Before these glasses my eyes would be blood shot red after 5 plus hours on any screen (I also have 20/20 vision, just strains my eyes when I have to look at an LCD screen for too long, but any other real life activities have no effect on my vision, so I am convinced it is only caused by the over exposure to LCD (LED) screens.)

I was a total skeptic when it came to these glasses and I put them off for the longest time (for about a year), but when my eyestrains began to intensify and gave me bad headaches, I began to look for an alternative. After reaading many testimonials I took a leap and just bought these, and I have to say THANK YOU GUNNAR! My eyes never strain anymore, my vision seems to be alot better when looking at LCD screens, and the glasses even appear to add a level of definition to High Definition itself. They make the pictures colors pop more and give them a slight graphic boost allowing you to full enjoy what ever you are viewing.

While playing my PS3, I would get a type of tunnel vision where I could not scan the screen while playing to see my surroundings to well, and it would make me a little woozy, but these things keep my focus level up and on high alert as they give a slight magnification to go along with the clarity that allows you to scan all areas of the screen, making you prepared for any situation which is great! And for all the skeptics out there, don't make the same mistake I did, your eyes are something that you are going to use for the rest of your life, and even though the price tag is a little hefty, these glasses are worth every penny! You can't put a price on headache free gaming with improved comfort for maximum performance conditions for your eyes!

Thats just my little rant, I believe every gamer should have these, they are the real deal.

I'm a contacts wearer, and if I game for anymore than 30 mins, I feel my them drying up, and my eyes becoming really sore. So I thought, what the heck, give these a try.
Gunnar Optiks is definitely onto something good here. They work really well. Reduced eye strain, contacts no longer felt dry after some gaming, and comes with a great storage case.

So they work, but I'm just not a fan of their build quality. The frame just feels like the cheapest thing ever. Yea, they're extremely light, but I feel like I have to be extra careful when taking them out of or putting them back in the case. It bends way too easily, to the point where one of the lenses popped out when I was adjusting the nose piece. It's an easy fix to pop them back in, but that's more what you'd expect from $10 gas station sunglasses, not $80 gaming glasses.

I bought these a couple of years ago as sort of an impulse buy; I was big into the League of Legends scene and a pretty hardcore gamer at the time, so it made sense to buy these, obviously. Right? But anyway, I don't really game as much as I did two years ago and even when I was gaming, I didn't really use these a whole lot. And there would be days that I didn't wear them where I would get headaches from too much screen exposure; at first I thought it might be dehydration because a side-effect of my gaming problem was being too lazy to get up and get water. So I started hydrating more, which didn't help. Eventually I stopped gaming, so the headaches went away.

With the void in my free time left by my departure from gaming, I had more time to fine-tune my programming skills (I study Computer Science) and I actually ended up spending more time in front of the screens than I did when I was gaming, which resulted in more headaches like the same ones I had before. After a few instances of these headaches, I decided to dust off the glasses, which at this point I had just assumed were a placebo moneymaking scheme because of the gimmicky nature of "wearing-colored-lenses-that-look-cool-and-all-the-pro-gamers-wear-them".

--THE ACTUAL REVIEW--
The effect these lenses had was noticeable immediately. I'm now working at a summer internship and there's not a day I don't put these on.
