computer glassesIf you spend the majority of your work hours staring at a computer screen, you’re probably aware of some of computer vision syndrome’s effects. Dry eyes, headaches, and double vision are all side effects of spending too much time in front of the computer. But what can you do if spending consecutive hours looking at the computer screen is a major function of your work or leisure? Fortunately, Gunnar Optiks have created a solution, called Gunnar Computer Glasses. This innovative eyewear has been scientifically proven to reduce eyestrain that is resulted from overexposure to a computer screen. Here’s how Gunnar Computer Glasses work:

Reducing Glare

One source of eyestrain is computer screen glare. This glare is reflected off of the screen and can be intensified through smudges on eyewear lenses. Gunnar Computer Glasses not only offer anti-reflective coating to help minimize the glare, they also have hydrophobic and oleophobic finishes. These finishes help keep the lenses clear of smudges and fingerprints, ensuring that the lenses are clean and glare free.

Eye Dryness

People that stare at computer screens for prolonged periods of time typically blink less, which causes the eyes to become more dry than normall. Gunnar’s closely-wrapped frames help keep the eyes moist  by creating an ocular microclimate, which traps in humidity around the eyes.

Frame and Lens Heaviness

Depending on the size of the frames and lenses, many eyeglasses can induce headaches and eyestrain from their excess weight on the bridge of the nose. Using a patented diAmix lens, Gunnar Computer Glasses help reduce these side effects by incorporating a lens type that is extremely lightweight and therefore more comfortable on the face.
