Gunnar Optiks Digital Eyewear

Do you spend hour upon hour sat at the computer and eventually come away with a headache and sore, dry eyes? I know I do (work and gaming) and sometimes my eyes can get quite uncomfortable.

Gunnar Optiks Digital Eyewear

Well, a company called Gunnar Optiks have come up with a special range of glasses that seeks to reduce glare from monitors, and make on-screen images and text much clearer and easier to read.  The lenses of the glasses have a yellowish tint that helps to cancel out some of the blue light from overhead lighting and reduce the contrast of the white background of documents on the screen.

The Gunnar Optiks are available in a range of styles and colours, and there’s some information on the site that explains how the technology works.

There’s a review of the lenses over at Gearlog and they do sound quite promising. Priced at $100 they aren’t cheap, but if it saves you getting a pounding headache after a long gaming session then maybe it’s worth the investment.

I just wish they were available with normal prescription glasses.

  1. Thanks Barb, you’re absolutely right!

  2. Seriously, If using a computer playing games is a problem. You need to play less not get glasses to help you play longer!

  3. leave the man alone. everyone plays differently, but obviously gaming is a big part of his lifestyle -and- he has glasses. this is the perfect product for him and others.

  4. Exactly Matt. Its not just games that are a problem, some of us have to work long hours on a computer so anything that reduces eye strain is a good thing. I also find that eye lube, such as Viscotears, helps reduce the irritation of dry eyes.

  5. Gunnars sound very cool, from what I understand, they are for extended computer use, so, if you are like me and spend 8 hours on a computer for work and then another few for gaming…these should help. 🙂

  6. Yes James you are an ASSHOLE…LOL…GAMERS UNITE and kick James ass..lol
