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.

The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is due to how easy these are to smudge. For as fantastically as they work for me, I end up having to wipe them off with a microfiber cloth multiple times a day because they're ALWAYS getting smudged. If they could figure out what makes these things smudge so easily and clear up (bad pun, sorry) that issue, then these things would be perfect.
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. Not only have I not gotten a single-eye strain headache in the three weeks I've been working so far (the headaches would normally happen once or twice a week during periods of constant use), but I even feel less tired at the end of the day (now my girlfriend isn't always mad at me for being too tired to do stuff with her after work, bonus side effect), which I'm assuming has to do with the eye strain-reduction.
They are also extremely light weight and don't get in the way at all. I have on-ear headphones and I don't feel like I'm wearing these at all, and they're not heavy so they don't really get in the way or feel like I'm wearing something tacky on my face. The build seems a little flimsy, but that's just a natural drawback of being so lightweight; I bought a hard case to keep them in for transportation which is much nicer to have than the flimsy little bag/cleaning cloth that came with the lenses and I don't really see their flimsiness as being a problem.
Bottom line; if you have eye strain problems that cause headaches and "tired eyes", look no further than Gunnar Optiks. If you are on the fence because these lenses seem placebo-y, don't be. Two years later, I'm glad I finally get to benefit from what this product has to offer, and the difference is pretty remarkable. Would recommend, easy 5 stars for me.
I previously purchased 2 different pairs of PC glasses from different manufacturers that cost $20-$30. Both of them made me nauseous after about 10 minutes of wearing them so I returned them both. I looked around on the web for a good pair of glasses and saw that Gunnar had a lot of people's recommendation so I purchased these since I like the design.
My impression of these glasses is that they are over-hyped and overpriced. Main reason for me thinking this is the ear stems on the glasses themselves. They just look and feel cheap, and I think they could have done a better job designing the way they adjust instead of just having a piece of plastic sliding over the thin metal stems.
As for the functionality of these glasses, there are a few good things to talk about. First thing first is that I didn't feel any nausea while using these glasses like I did with the other ones I've mentioned. I have worn these all day and not once had a problem. These are light weight and I don't really even notice them through out the day.
The slight magnification these have I don't really have an opinion on, it's neither here nor there for me.
I'm still getting used to the slight yellow tint, but the color hasn't had any negative effects on me, all the colors look right, it's just that white is now like a bone color instead. When comparing white without the glasses on I do see the white has a more blue-ish tint than I have previously noticed.
I don't really have any significant ailments from staring at the pc screen all day, so I can't say anything about these glasses in that regard.
Overall I like these glasses, but I feel the price point on these should have been around $30-$40. These certainly don't feel like $80 glasses.
