GUNNAR OPTIKS – Eye-Strain Reducing Glasses

GUNNAR OPTIKS – Eye-Strain Reducing Glasses

For people who spend hours a day in front of a computer screen like I do, eyestrain is a common occurrence. With this comes headaches and fatigue. In my search for ways to deal with this issue I came across a company named Gunnar who designs eye glasses for gamers and computer users.

Gunnar says that its glasses help computer users in several ways.  The yellowish tint, for instance, softens the high-intensity energy that monitors and fluorescent lights emit, making the environment seem warmer and less harsh.  I noticed and appreciated that effect when I wore the glasses.  One drawback of the tint is that it affects how you see colors. For people whose jobs depend on distinguishing indigo from violet,  Gunnar makes lenses with a Crystalline tint that the company says doesn’t interfere with color perception.

The curved shape of the Gunnar’s lenses serves two purposes. First, according to the company, the lenses focus specifically on the distance at which most people view their computer screens. Second, the curve help trap humidity near the eye–useful because most offices have chronically dry air that tends to dehydrate occupants’ eyes. Text on my screen definitely looked sharper when I had the Gunnars on.

I’ve found that Gunnar Glasses help me spend hours working on a computer more comfortably.  If you spend a lot of time staring at a monitor and your eyes are giving you grief, Gunnar Glasses are worth checking out.
