NAKED EYES ARE NOT DESIGNED TO STARE AT ARTIFICIAL BLUE LIGHT
WELCOME TO THE DIGITAL GENERATION
We are wired to a media-rich, networked world of infinite possibility. Visually connected to computers, tablets, phones and games – peering into an abyss of high-energy visible [HEV] artificial blue light for hours can disrupt your entire system; your eyes, neck and back, circadian rhythms, serotonin levels and overall health. Computer Vision Syndrome [CVS] and has become an increasing problem. Nearly 70 percent of U.S. adults experience digital eye strain as a result of increasing use of digital devices. Cumulative exposure to artificial blue-light can contribute to vision problems such as cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.
THE SOLUTION: GUNNAR PATENTED LENS TECHNOLOGY
GUNNAR IS THE ONLY PATENTED COMPUTER EYEWEAR RECOMMENDED BY DOCTORS TO PROTECT AND ENHANCE YOUR VISION
PATENTED LENS TECHNOLOGY
GUNNAR offers the only patented computer lens technology solution, recommended by doctors, to protect and enhance your vision. Our custom and complete solution addresses and alleviates all common issues associated with digital eye strain, effects of artificial blue light, visual stress and fatigue. As the world leader in computer eyewear, GUNNAR pioneered an advanced lens material that offers distortion free, ultra-light, ergonomic properties not found in inferior lens material. Our proprietary lens design aids natural focusing to provide sharper, clearer vision, resulting in less strain on ciliary muscles and frame your face to reduce effects of dry eye. In addition, custom tints and premium coatings block high-energy, artificial blue light, UV and glare to protect your vision. The result – improved clarity, focus and performance designed to meet demanding visual needs of our generation. Prescription Rx eyeglasses are available for anyone that require corrective lenses.
Our patented lens design is highly wrapped to limit air currents near the eyes, increasing humidity and preventing irritation, unlike many traditional prescription eyeglasses. This design enhances focus and sharpens detail to ease eye strain.
THE SCIENCE: Individual blink rate is decreased by approximately 60 percent when using a computer or near distance work, consequently, protective tear film layers are replenished less frequently, leaving eyes irritated, dry, and exposed to environmental damage. Long term effects may include abrasion, erosion, and scarring of the cornea. Our highly wrapped frame limits air currents and increases humidity to form a protective barrier around the eye. Continuous flexion of ciliary muscles during long periods of near distance viewing can cause blurred vision, difficulty focusing, double vision and eye strain. Our Lens Design pre-focuses the light allowing ciliary muscles to relax while details appear sharper.
THE BENEFIT: Dry eyes can cause irritation and impair normal visual function. GUNNARS increase humidity levels and reduce muscular strain resulting in eyes that are refreshed, protected and able to function more comfortably and efficiently.
GUNNAR lens material eliminates distortion from impurities and haze found in inferior materials to ensure the clearest image possible. The ultralight yet durable, performance optics will not degrade over time.
THE SCIENCE: Traditional lens materials compromise on clarity, color control, durability or impact resistance. GUNNAR lens material is the only optical lens that optimizes durability and impact resistance while maintaining the highest degree of clarity and color control. With minimal haze and ultra-sharp optics, lenses appear crystal clear. The high degree of color control within the lenses also enables GUNNARS to handle engineered tints and bandpass filters properly with no bi-refringence or edge effects found in inferior lens materials.
THE BENEFIT: highly durable material creates stable optics that won’t permanently deform when flexed or degrade over time through repeated use. Our lens materials offer an optically pure viewing experience with ultra-light, ergonomic properties that provide:
• Low density with lighter lenses
• Higher light transmission rate that enhances clarity
• Higher ABBE value for distortion free viewing
• Medium index of refraction (1.51) allows for thinner lenses than CR39
GUNNARS custom lens tints filter blue light and block UV to enhance contrast and protect eyes. The filtered spectrum replicates natural light, minimizing visual stress.
THE SCIENCE: Artificial light from energy efficient computers and overhead fluorescent lighting consists of narrow bands of high energy light instead of equally balanced, full spectrum the human eye prefers. Changing the color of your screen or brightness does not affect the quality of the digital light. GUNNAR lens tints filter and balance the transmitted spectrum, reducing high energy visible [HEV] light and warming the overall view. With harsh blue light reduced, sensitive parts of the eye are engaged, increasing perceived contrast. Filtering blue light from a backlit screen reduces visual recovery time and protects the eyes. “after image” effects.
THE BENEFIT: Our custom tints tune artificial blue light to enhance the physiology of the naked eye, increasing contrast perception and shifting the color spectrum for visual efficiency.
TINT OPTIONS: The GUNNAR signature Amber lens tint offers the best enhancement of contrast and visual performance while minimizing screen glare and diminishing the harshest parts of the color spectrum. Our Crystalline lens and coating formula is designed specifically for graphic designers, video/film editors, and creative visual artists that require an equally balanced color spectrum. If your profession requires you to work in true color, then this lens option is for you. Our non-polarized Outdoor tint create a more comfortable and rich visual experience for anyone viewing their digital devices outdoors.
GUNNAR lens coatings reduce glare and reflective light to eliminate visual distraction and stress. An external hard coat provides extended lens durability and resists scratching.
THE SCIENCE: GUNNAR Lens Coatings have anti-reflective properties that reduce reflections and glare. Without distracting reflections, eyes can focus more efficiently. While some eyewear may have anti-reflective properties on the front portion of the lens, reflected light from the eye itself can be distracting on the inside of the lens. GUNNAR uses the anti-reflection coating on both sides of the lens for a clear view. An external hard coat make GUNNAR eyewear extremely durable. Low quality lenses can degrade over time due to the buildup of haze inducing oils and surface abrasion and damage from usage lowers the optical performance. GUNNAR lens coatings have an outer, protective hard coat to resist scratching and maintain optical integrity over time. Additional treatments prevent oil buildup from penetrating the lens material and promote easy cleaning and care.
THE SCIENCE: Reducing external sources of visual light and glare, minimizes the amount of work your eyes perform to focus on a task. GUNNAR’S Lens Coatings optimize the environment by eliminating visual noise. The protective outer layer also provides lasting durability and lens performance over time.
WHY GUNNAR COMPUTER EYEWEAR?
Reduces Digital Eye Strain.
Eye fatigue, dry eyes and headaches are symptoms of spending too much time in front of a digital screen. GUNNAR lens design has extra focusing power providing you sharper, clearer vision. This patented technology helps you focus more naturally creating less eye strain.
Improves Comfort and Focus.
The overabundance of bright artificial light can create a strain on your eyes. But GUNNAR custom lens tints and filters block harsh blue light and glare so your eyes can finally relax. Focus longer. Work more efficiently. Be comfortable doing it.
Protects Your Eyes.
Look around you. You probably work in an environment filled with fluorescent light, glare, and uncomfortable air currents. GUNNAR patented lens technology reduces glare and prevents dry eyes.
SELECT A STYLE
We offer a wide range of eyeglass frames and lens options to suit your lifestyle and specific usage needs. Our Computer styles are ideal for general computer, tablet, mobile and casual gaming use. Gaming specific styles are designed with flat temples for a comfortable fit with most gaming headsets. Amber tinted lenses are recommended for all users as they filter the harsh spectrum, however, our Crystalline tint is engineered to allow for designers and visual artists that require true color. Our non-polarized Outdoor sunglasses are perfect for anyone using digital devices in bright sunlit environments, as polarization renders screens unreadable at certain orientations
