      Saved My Eyes

      I was a skeptic on if Gunnars worked. My first pair were these Onyx model Gunnars I bought from Best Buy. I was working a tech chat job, using horrible quality and horrible resolution screens. At the end of my 8 hour shift my eyes felt like they wanted to pop out of my head. I actually started noticing it was harder for me to see things at a distance, and I was losing my eye sight due to eye strain, or what it felt like. I finally decided in store after seeing these to give them a try. They were super light, really comfy and solid quality out of the box. Over a few years of use though the plastic around the lens broke. I glued it but, that only worked for so long. Gunnars helped save my eyesight. I purchased my second pair of Onyx model Gunnars (but the metal framed ones so I didn't have the frame break) and I will never go back. If you are a person who looks at a computer screen all day for work, or you are always playing video games, or always staring at screens. Do not wait, buy these. They will literally make a world of difference. I've sold a few of my fellow Computer Science classmates on them since coding all day takes a toll on your eye sight. My only quirk about the 4/5 stars is the plastic frame seemed to fail on it's own, I always took great care of them and never crushed them. They just broke one day when I put them on, but don't let that stop you from trying them out. You will never go back.

      It does work!

      I was very unsure about the effectiveness about these glasses especially for the price, but I have been having issues with eye fatigue and wanted to see if this product really would work. I picked them up because they were on sale and I had a 10 dollar rz cert, so i got them for 40, but asked my friend/ BB employee Adam at store 408 (I love this guy) and he said, "if your buying them because you think the image will be so much better!, then they might not be worth it" I said, I'm buying them because I have issues with sore eyes, and stiff neck, and he replied, "then you will certainly see a big difference." And boy have I, I thoroughly enjoy these glasses, I think I look like a giant nerd because of the frames, but lets face it, i spend a ton of time in front of a computer, so technically I am a giant nerd. You will notice a difference in lighter tones, like light grey and the like, but most other colors will remain the same. I also noticed it takes the edge off of games that appear too sharp. Far Cry 3 looks so sharp it was bothering my eyes, which was the main reason I bought these, and afterwards it looks much better and doesn't make me feel nauseated while playing that game for awhile. If this pair breaks, I'm buying more, but maybe in a more fashionable frame, I bought this style because it was cheapest, if you are on the fence, go with this cheaper style until you discover how great that are.

      Great glasses. If you hunch over an play to feel like you are more in the action then these are perfect for you. They will help you stop doing that, and save your neck and back from terrible posture. I have neck and back problems already and I'm trying to fix that. These are my first step. Old way of gaming - Hunched forward on a chair, elbows on knees/thighs. Result - Bad posture, stretched back muscles, sore knees/thighs, etc New way of gaming with gunnars-comfortable sitting position, no more knees on elbows Result-no more back pain. If you have an average sized head, they will be a little tight. to me, that's okay. It's not too bad. One thing I'll point out, people say they don't like these cause they change the color. I think the color change is no big deal. I had the color tone setting on my sumsung tv at "warm 1", Since using these, I have my color tone to "standard" and it is great. yes, the yellow tint changes color, but think about any pair of sunglasses you'd buy, those change the color tone of everything as well. After playing with these for a few hours, I tried without the glasses. First thought is, "why did I wait so long to buy these." It brings out so much detail. I looked at the grass and trees in the game, you can see more definition behind the stalks of grass and leaves on the tree. You can see so much more detail with these glasses on.

      I bought these glasses due to the fact that I spend 12+ hours per day in front of a digital screen. I work full time for a website design firm in tech support so spend easily 8-12 hours in front of a PC at work, at home I'm either using my MacBook, my iPad or looking at my iPhone... not to mention I regularly play Halo 4, Madden 13 and Call of Duty on Xbox 360 (looking at a 42" plasma)... needless to say, I have regularly dry eyes, headache and eye fatigue... I figured all the time I spend in front of a screen both for business and pleasure should warrant a purchase of the proper equipment needed to protect my eyes. Immediately after purchasing these, I've noticed sharper text, clearer colors and enhanced contrast.... 5 hours now looking at a monitor and guess what? I feel I could easily go another 5 hours without removing my new Gunnars and rubbing my eyes. Worth every penny... and they are fashionable as well (though my wife says they make me look like a Hipster... everyone else has complimented me on them and asked where I bought them).

      I have to be on the computer over 8 hours a day and my eyes were suffering. They got really red, and they were extremely painful. These glasses have made a huge difference. They don't eliminate the redness, but my eyes don't hurt anymore. It makes it easier for me to work and stay focused. Although they are advertised as "gaming" glasses, they work just as well for any computer activity where you have to stare at a screen for hours. These are the cheapest gunnar glasses I could find, and they look extremely geeky and large. Some of the newer versions are smaller and lighter. My brother has a pair of the more expensive ones. The nice thing about my pair is that the frame is very sturdy (plastic), where his are thin metal and feel really delicate. I bought a case to go with mine but they don't fit, so don't buy a gunnar case if you get these glasses. If you get a more expensive version, with the metal frames, the case is pretty essential.

      I bought this because I have dry eyes. I've been using Restasis. I'm constantly on a computer at work and at home. My home computer has the monitor with the Blue light levels and my work computer doesn't have it. So I bought it to use at work. It does seem to help a little, my eyes don't feel strained as much when using it. But with all the claims that the company made it doesn't look like it is working. Sharpens detail for easier viewing I can't tell the difference with it on or off. Block Blue light seems to work as my eyes doesn't seems as tired with it on. Prevents Eye Dryness well I'm not sure if it really helps with that, as my eyes feel the same with it on or without after 8 hours. but like I said it doesn't feel as tired. Anti-reflective coating works as long as the lenses are clean, but then that might because the lenses are clean. The lenses on these smudge easily and really needs cleaning when it does, even light smudges. My Oakley's works better with similar smudges I'd recommend this for blue light only, testing has shown that it blocks about 50% of it. There is an $8-$9 one that blocks 75% - 80% of blue light, made by a different company, this one looks aesthetically better though.

      Helps with headaches and sensitive eyes

      Back story: I stare at 2 computer screens on most days for about 8 hours a day. I also like to unwind with some FPS (first person shooter)gaming on my 55" 4K. I have blue eyes and 20/20 vision. I suffer from chronic headaches and migraines. Point being my eyes are extremely sensitive to all light. My eyes are constantly strained and while wearing my expensive polarized sunglasses inside (which is not "cool") helps, it's not practical. After extensive research for glasses that would aid me in my working conditions, I found that Gunnar eyewear was my safest bet. Since my purchase I am fairly pleased with the product. I am not use to wearing these type of glasses and it takes a bit to get accustom to the lens but once your eyes have adjusted (takes seconds) they are very comfortable and I swear I can hear my eyes let out a sigh of relief every time I put them on. Taking them off after long hours of use takes an adjustment. Other than that I have had no problems. The additional warranty that best buy offers for them is amazing! $10 for the warranty and I have already dropped and scratched the lenses. I took them to my nearest Best Buy (not the one I purchased them at) and they replaced them right there with a brand new pair! I wish I had that warranty on my sunglasses!

      I bought the glasses hoping they would improve my vision or at least stop my decline due to using a computer all day. I started to wear them and they worked just fine. I notice that they do distort long distance viewing, otherwise I'd wear them all of the time. Simply because they distort long distance vision I came to the conclusion that they probably aren't good for the eyes if you cannot use them no matter what situation. Why do I think this? Every pair of non prescription glasses do the same thing, they allow you to view through them without distorting close or distant object. Sunglasses being my primary example. These glasses however, distort images in the distance so I'd have to say they have some degree of visual alteration not just a color filter to help with computer viewing. I am not prepared to test this theory on whether or not this could be good or bad for me, so I just decided to stop wearing them. If you would like them, they are in great condition and I'd sell them for half price simply to get rid of them and get something back on it seeing as how I am out of my 90 day return. So why did I rate them a 4, which means "Good"? Because minus my analyzations on the potential to ruin my vision in the long run, they work quite well.
