GUNNARS are high tech computer eyewear designed to protect, enhance and optimize your vision

 

The Problem:

You spend most of your waking hours glued to your computer screen, smart phone, tablet or TV monitor. As the hours go by, you subject your eyes to harsh, high intensity blue light and glare from your screen. Constant viewing of digital screens can create visual stress, eye fatigue, dry eyes, irritation, and even headaches, leading to an obvious conclusion staring at a computer for long hours can take a toll on your eyes.

The Solution:

GUNNARS increase contrast, comfort and focus while minimizing eye fatigue and visual stress for anyone who spends long hours staring at digital screens. GUNNAR eyewear is powered by i-AMP lens technology comprised of a proprietary lens material in an advanced geometry tuned for intermediate viewing distance and finished with custom formulated lens filters, tints and coatings.

HOW THEY WORK


Spending hours in front of a digital device can be exhausting. Our eyes are designed for a combination of close and far distant viewing. Staring at a close distance for long periods of time cause the muscles of the eyes to tire and fatigue. While using a digital device your blink rate greatly reduces while eyes open wider.

  • GUNNAR amber lenses add additional contrast to define shapes and sharpen detail for easier viewing.
  • GUNNAR lens tints filter 65% of high frequency blue light emitted from digital devices to protect eyes.
  • GUNNAR lens focusing power helps you hold focus on your screens and minimizes eye muscle fatigue.
  • GUNNAR wrap-around patented lens design prevents dry eyes and irritation to ease eyestrain.
  • GUNNAR anti-reflective coatings on front and back of the lenses eliminate visual distractions to the eye.
 

 

WHAT IS DIGITAL EYE STRAIN?


Digital eye strain is a collection of physical effects felt after prolonged exposure to digital screens at close distance. Symptoms include dry eyes, blurred vision, visual stress, eye fatigue, and disrupted sleep patterns. Artificial blue light is the biggest reason these symptoms exist and can also lead to sleep disorders, cataracts, and age-related macular degeneration.
