Glasses for Intensive Computer Users

5 Permalink 0

Are your eyes red and puffy from staring at a screen all day? Office workers and gamers often suffer from dry, fatigued eyes from looking at computer screens all day.

We get a lot of questions at from office workers who are suffering from tired, dry eyes. So we’re excited to introduce Gunnar Optiks, the first eyewear line specifically engineered to eliminate these symptoms for the intensive computer user.

Gunnar Computer Glasses

Gunnar identified four important factors that lead to eye fatigue (Computer Vision Syndrome) for computer users and developed a solution for each one.

Gunnar factor 1Optical Noise:
Problem: Glare is a problem among people who work on primary light sources such as computers. Scratches or smudges tend to intensify glare.

All Gunnar lenses have hydrophobic, oliophobic and anti-glare finishes. And incorporate fRACTYL lens geometry helps focus light.

Gunnar factor 2Optical Wavelength:
Problem: High energy wavelengths produced by artificial light sources, such as fluorescent bulbs and computer screens, contribute to eyestrain and fatigue.

Solution: Gunnar’s proprietary iONik lens tints are effective at eliminating eyestrain and fatigue by specifically targeting and then shifting the high energy wavelengths produced by artificial light sources.

Gunnar factor 3Dryness:
Problem: Prolonged, concentrated viewing of computer screens typically results in less blinking, which leads to dry, irritated eyes.

Solution: The highly wrapped configuration of Gunnar’s fRACTYL lens geometry sits close to the face and creates an ocular microclimate. This prevents dry eyes by trapping in humidity and blocking out evaporative air currents.

Gunnar factor 4Weight:
Problem: Wearing eyeglasses for extended periods can result in uncomfortable pressure and pain at their points of contact.

Solution: Gunnar uses a patented diAmix lens material that is extremely strong and ultra-light making them extremely comfortable for extended wear.

We’re so confident that you will experience a better quality of vision and comfort when wearing your new Gunnar Optics computer glasses while working or gaming that we’re offering a 30 day no hassle money back guarantee.

    I might have to go ahead and purchase a pair for myself. How much do they usually go for. There’s so much florescent lighting and glares in my office. It’s not too necessary since I have a big window next to me that provides a great amount of natural light. However, because I share an office, the light has to be on. It’s been bothering me for some time and I can already see the effects it has on my eyes.

    Here’s what Jeremy, one of our Gunnar experts, says:

    Gunnar glasses are made for eyestrain and fatigue from computers. They are also tinted the yellow color to reduce the harmful lights from the computer. The shape of the glasses are also curved to allow more oxygen in the eye to help with the dryness that usually comes with staring at the screen.

    Your everyday Anti Reflective is a great multi use coating, which helps with eyestrain and eye fatigue by allowing more light through the lens rather than bouncing off the lens and creating glare.

    Dianna, another Gunnar expert optician added:

    The Gunnar lenses have been designed to resolve some of the main issues that computer users complain about most: glare, dry eyes, blurred images and headaches. The design of the lenses target each of these areas . The combination of the specialized tint and material and the anti-reflective coating will effectively soften the effect of fatigue and eye strain that is caused by prolonged use of a computer. The prescription glasses that are made specifically for a computer will help with vision but the anti-reflective coating allows less light reflection allowing more light to enter your lens with the affect of less fatigue and strain on the eyes.

    What is the difference in Gunnar glasses that reduces glare and other prescription glasses that are non-glare?

    The Gunner Optices (non RX) are for people who do not wear glasses and want the benefit of the Gunner technology to work at the computer. These are also good for those who wear contacts.

    The Gunner Prescription lenses are for those who wear glasses and want to benefit from the gunner technology to work at the computer.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions.
    There is also a great computer glasses video that may help explain RX vs Non Rx.
