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
GUNNARS patented lens technology is designed and engineered to meet the demanding visual needs of 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 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.

Glad to say I'm really pleased with these glasses. There is a noticeable difference in graphics quality presentation and detail when you put them on. They remind me of polarized fishing glasses. I've tried them with Fallout 4, Titanfall 2 and Battlefield 1 among many other games and the result is the same. The shadowing, detail and contrast is much more pronounced.
The manufacturer also claim that these classes reduce eye fatigue. I really can't say one way or the other. When you play "x" hours of computer games, your eyes are going to get tired no matter what. And they are glasses - if you don't wear glasses or wear sunglasses very much, you'll notice them after a while. I wish they had lighter frames, which is why I knocked off one star.
Otherwise, they're as advertised as far as bringing out the quality in the visual aspect of a game and will be buying a second set for my girlfriend shortly.
The Gamma Ray was the cheapest feeling but the fit wasn't bad. Problem was the cheap lens which made everything blurry
The J&S felt like a quality product but they felt a little tight on my bridge and the lens weren't as clear as the Gunnar
The Gunnar Intercept was very tight against the sides of my head and the bridge was a little too small. However, the .2 magnification was actually helpful to me as they also helped while switching to reading. I no longer need to use my reading glasses which were a little too strong for me as well.
The lens on the Gunnar to me was clearly a step above from the others. The images were clearer, the amber tint is very light, in fact I wore them around the Office even when not using the computer.
Unfortunately due to the poor fit I'm going to return them and try the Gunnar Micron which has a slightly bigger bridge.
I also ordered a cheap pair of safety glasses, Uvex Skyper, that people seem to be raving about, just to use at home.
Con: Really, the only gripe I have is how ridiculously easy it is to smudge these. Accidentally tap your glasses with a finger or knuckle? Smudge. Have real bushy eyebrows? Smudge. Don't wipe the classes with proper glass cleaner? Smudge. It's quite annoying honestly. Never had a pair of sunglasses that I had to deal with as much cleaning/wiping as these. Further reading other reviews shows this is a common complaint. Also the price is slightly high IMO, perhaps due to the Gunnar name? It is a big name in gaming.
For me though, while slightly high, it is $60 well spent to make working behind a desk far more comfortable.
Even setting these terrible fit problems aside, my product came with one lens clouded- either by defect or mishandling before it arrived for me. Sending mine back, trying one more pair in a different style, and then writing the company off
People who think they are expensive must not have purchased eyeglasses in the past, or even sunglasses for that matter. $50-60 isn't expensive for the quality. I do agree with people who say it feels like the lenses might pop out, but so far this has never been an issue. The main thing I notice about these frames is that they are very comfortable and study feeling.
It is annoying how the lenses fog up and smudge easily, but I'm not going to dock this product because I assume this is a consequence of the humidity they create around your eyes. Since you're only expected to use these while seated in front of your computer, it's convenient to keep a microfiber cloth on your desk.
My brother decided to buy these after trying mine, but while shopping found a cheaper alternative brand (Gamma Ray). He asked what I think of those. I told him he'd probably be happy with either, but my recommendation was for the Gunnar's because of the comfort. I can't stress how comfortable these are. I enjoy wearing them, and even more so because of the reduced eye-strain. This is for sure a 5-star product.
