What is different between GUNNAR lens technology and other glasses?

GUNNAR is the only patented computer eyewear recommended by doctors to protect and enhance your vision while using a digital device. Our advanced optical technology addresses all issues associated with digital eyestrain including dry, irritated eyes, blurry vision, headaches, glare, as well as the negative effects of artificial blue light including eyestrain and fatigue. The result: improved clarity, focus and performance.

What is the advantage of Amber lenses?

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. Light from energy efficient computers and overhead fluorescent lighting consists of narrow bands of high energy light instead of the equally balanced, full spectrum light 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 spectrum. By reducing harsh blue light, sensitive parts of the eye are engaged, increasing contrast. Filtering blue light from a backlit screen reduces visual recovery time and protects the eyes.

  • Increased brightness perception
  • Increased ability to see objects against background
  • Increased overall clarity of vision
  • Decreased glare

Do GUNNAR Computer Glasses have extra focusing power?

GUNNAR lens material has specifically tuned focusing power providing you with sharper, clearer vision. This patented lens technology aids natural focusing and reduces stress and strain on your eyes. Less eye strain reduces digital fatigue and issues associated with prolonged computer use. The GUNNAR non-Rx frames have a standard +0.2 diopter that allows the eyes not to strain and stress when looking at close computer distances for extended periods of time.

What’s the difference between computer eyewear and gaming eyewear?

Our lens technology is optimized for using a digital device regardless of the style of frame or type of lens you choose. Computer eyewear styles are generally more contemporary and modern, while our Gaming frame styles are designed with flat temples so they are more compatible with audio headsets.

Are GUNNARS polarized?

Our lenses are not polarized as that can adversely affect viewing a digital device and even make the screen disappear at certain orientations. Don’t worry, though, our lenses do block damaging UV, high energy visible [HEV], and blue light as well as glare.

Will wearing GUNNAR glasses make me dependent on them or weaken my vision?

No they won’t on both accounts. GUNNAR glasses are simply an aid to remove unneeded stress, improve vision, and they will not cause your eyesight to grow worse. The slight magnification helps eyes muscles and corrects blurry vision. The magnification simulates looking further away.
