ENGINEERED TO
ELIMINATE EYE STRAIN

while increasing contrast, comfort and focus for anyone
using a computer, gaming console or simply coding the next big thing.

THE PROBLEM:

HEADACHES

DRY EYES

BLURRY VISION

EYE FATIGUE

THE HUMAN EYE IS NOT DESIGNED TO STARE AT A SCREEN ALL DAY.

Does this sound familiar?

It’s the end of a long day. Your eyes are dry. The screen looks blurry. Rubbing them? No help. Eye drops? No difference. You want to keep going, but your eyes just can’t keep up.

We’re glued to our digital devices day and night. Computers/smart phones/tablets/TVs— staring at the screen for most of your waking hours will take a toll on your eyes.

Nearly 70 percent of U.S. adults experience digital eye strain as a result of the growing use of these devices. Adults aged 18 to 34 report feeling eye strain at a higher rate (45%) than their older counterparts.

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.

THE TECHNOLOGY:

It’s the science that makes the lens.

HOW DO WE KNOW? We’re all part of a digital generation that places tremendous value on technology. GUNNAR computer eyewear was developed to meet the optical needs of an increasingly digital world. Our primary goal – to protect your vision. We’re committed to making remarkable eyewear technology that let’s you create, innovate, and game longer. With GUNNARS, you’re more alert, more focused and more comfortable than ever.

PROPRIETARY SHAPE


ProprietaryShape

The curvature of GUNNAR frames and lenses protect your eyes from drying air currents that could otherwise irritate them. Eyes feel less dry and more comfortable.


The science

Intense digital viewing reduces blink rate dramatically. With a blink rate that can be from half to a third of normal, protective tear film breaks up between blinks, leaving eyes irritated, dry, and exposed to environmental damage. Long term effects can include abrasion, erosion, or even scarring of the cornea. The lens shape includes a highly wrapped lens design that limits air currents near the eye. Lenses wrap closely to the face and form a protective barrier from drying air currents while trapping humidity close to the eye.

Why it matters

Eyes feel more comfortable and protected. Dry, scratchy, irritated feelings go away. In independent third party studies, alleviation of dry eye irritation ranked as the number one improvement brought on by use of GUNNAR eyewear.

 

ENHANCED FOCUSING POWER

EnhancedFocusingPower_v2

Specifically tuned focusing power, standard in all GUNNAR lenses, improves detail for clearer vision. You can see the difference – text is crisper and images are sharper.  This creates less strain on your eyes.

The science

Eye muscles flex to view near objects. Extended near distance viewing without breaks causes cumulative eyestrain, can lead to repetitive stress problems, and can even cause possible loss of distance vision. GUNNAR lens technology focuses light before reaching the eye, allowing eye muscles to relax.

Why it matters

Long-term comfort increases, allowing longer sessions at the computer, game console, or mobile device without eye muscles straining as hard. Eyes feel less tired. In the short term, details are easier to see with the overall image appearing sharper and clearer.

CRYSTAL CLEAR OPTICS

CrystalClearOptics

GUNNAR lens material is made up of a custom-blended proprietary polymer as tough as traditional polycarbonate lenses and rivals the optics of ground glass. This gives you the most optically pure experience a lens can offer – no distortion, haze, or impurities.

The science

Traditional lens materials compromise on clarity, color control, durability or impact resistance. GUNNAR lens material is the only 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 other lens materials. The highly durable material creates stable optics that won’t permanently deform when flexed or degrade over time through repeated use.

Why it matters

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

CUSTOM TINTS

CustomTints

GUNNAR custom lens tints filter out the harsh artificial light from digital screens, improving overall contrast and comfort by eliminating harmful high-intensity blue light.

The science

Artificial light from energy efficient computers and overhead fluorescent lighting contains small bands of high intensity energy instead of equally balanced, full spectrum light the human eye prefers to see. GUNNAR lens tints filter and balance the transmitted spectrum, reducing high energy visible light and warming the overall view. With harsh, high energy light reduced, more sensitive parts of the eye engage, increasing perceived contrast. Reducing the overall amount of light from a self-illuminated screen helps visual recovery and reduces “after image” effects.

Why it matters

The custom tints take artificial light and precisely tune it to the physiology of the eye, which increases contrast perception and shifts color spectrum for visual efficiency.  

Tint Options:

Amber

The GUNNAR signature lens tint that offers the best enhancement of contrast and visual performance while minimizing screen glare and diminishing the harshest parts of the color spectrum.

Crystalline

This clear 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.

Outdoor

Our non-polarized outdoor tints create a more comfortable and rich visual experience for anyone viewing their digital devices outdoors.

 

PROTECTIVE COATING

ProtectiveCoating

GUNNAR lens coatings include anti-reflective properties that reduce peripheral glare which help relax your eyes and stop them from straining. A hard-coated exterior creates a durable, protective layer, minimizing the chance for damage or scratching caused in the midst of a hectic workday or gaming session.

The science

Reflections and glare cause visual noise, resulting in extra strain to mentally sort between the desired image and non-desired light. GUNNAR Lens Coatings have anti-reflective properties that reduce reflections and glare. Without distracting reflections, the screen appears crisp and clear. While some prescription eyewear has 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 crystal clear view.
Our lens coatings also make GUNNAR eyewear extremely durable. In the short term, normal lens optics degrade due to the buildup of haze inducing oils. In the long term, surface abrasion and damage from use lowers the optical performance.
GUNNAR lens coatings have an outer, protective hard coat that resists scratching and helps maintain optical integrity over time. Additional treatments prevent oil buildup and promote easy cleaning and care.

Why it matters

You can be confident that our lens coatings will reduce eyestrain. Without constantly straining your eye muscles, headaches and eye strain associated with too much screen time tend to be minimized or go away completely. The protective outer layer also provides lasting durability with excellent visual performance over time.
