Worth it


I ordered these glasses for work as I stare at a few monitors all day. I do play video games which also adds to the strain on my eyes. These glasses have a slight magnification and mild yellow tint. What it does, is flatten and sharpen the images on...

keep the cleaner nearby they get dirty easy, can't take off an egg for it but since I don't normally wear glasses I'lll have to get used to it

Surprisingly Helpful


Some people complain that the frame feels "cheap". I think they just don't know how glasses work. A lightweight flexible frame is a very good thing in glasses because idealy you don't feel them on your face at all. This is obviously goes against the...

These noticeably reduce my eyestrain when working. If I'm reading anything on a monitor, these definitely crisp things up a little and soften the colors ; I no longer have a headache by the end of the day. Really nice change

I don't think they're that great for gaming. In a lot of instances it almost seems like they grey out certain subtle colors...I almost find myself straining a little harder to see things that I'm used to seeing without them. I don't know if it's just...

was skeptical


I was skeptical about these glasses, all the reviews, and information I saw seemed too good to be true, and the claims to outlandish to be anything but marketing jibber jabber, but I took a chance and ordered the glasses, and I was absolutely amased at...

only con I noticed was the yellow tint at first make the screen a little yeloowish. Whites were a lil yellow, and greens a lil organish, but changing my monitors color temperature to cool, made all the difference, whites are super white, and all colors...

Very happy!


If you are a gamer and spend a long time in front of the monitor and tend to get headaches and eye fatigue i would absolutely look into these glasses.

Very light weight, fit extremely well and no discomfort while wearing my head set what so ever. I noticed a difference as soon as i put them on and started using them. I dont squint near as often when i read on my second monitor or my main. Gaming...

Takes a bit to get used to looking away from the screen. When looking down at the key board it takes a few seconds to adjust ; Other than that these things are amazing

just what I needed


I'm a graphic designer and a gamer at night. I was getting discouraged because of the bad reviews about how "yellowish" the graphics turn. It's a lie!! The difference is subtle, and you eyes and brain adjust to it. I edit in CMYK and RGB, and I can...

Lightweight, flexible, nice protective case, and they actually work

They have a brown frame, i hate brown

Very nice glasses and it WORKS!


Finally a computer glasses that WORKS! I bought this one on sale, hoping that if it doesn't work, I won't be wasting much money. Simply put, this Gunnar glasses work wonder for my eyes. I don't know how it works, but it does on me. Very very...

They work


The magnification is not much at all. I guess I do notice it while walking, but then again you're not supposed to wear them except for while viewing the computer screen.

First and foremost, they work. I read some complaints about these glasses not working and was hesitant. I develop websites and stare at a computer all day long. I started getting headaches on almost a daily basis. It's been 5 days and no more headaches...

They didn't come with the nice bag I've seen on some youtube reviews. It was just a clear plastic case

I love these glasses they have helped my eyes a lot. I could tell that there was a difference almost instantly. I would highly recommend these to anyone that plays video games

Absolutely Great


While the price on these may be a drawback to many people, they are well worth it to me. I have found these to provide immediate relief to my eyes. I enjoy these so much, I might possibly look into the Outdoor series from Gunnar.

I noticed a difference almost immediately. I work with computers for 12hrs per day. The eye strain relief is absolutely amazing. There is such a huge reduction in glare and eye strain that I have recommended them to many of my friends and family...

The only downside I have found with these glasses is the hinges seem to be a bit flimsy, but could be attributed to the fact that they're so light. It could also be attributed to the fact that they're not the typical spring/screw hinge on most glasses
