You might have seen Todd Cochrane from Geek News Central wearing yellow-lensed glasses. They are Gunnar‘s digital performance eyewear, and what kind of self-respecting techno-geek wouldn’t want to improve their digital performance? To help us do this , Gunnar offers a range of spectacles designed specifically for people who spend too much time in front of a screen. Again, that would be you!
Gunnar currently has a four different lines of glasses; Advanced Computer, Advanced Gaming, Premium 3D and Advanced Outdoor eyewear. The Premium 3d eyewear contains machined lenses embedded with i-AMP3D lens that are RealD™ compatible. The Advanced Gaming eyewear comes with venting details inspired by the latest technology in military machinery and the entire frame is covered with a brushed battle-scar finish. The first three lines are for indoor use, while the Advanced Outdoor eyewear features a gradient tint on the lenses that allow for optimal outdoor use and viewing of electronic devices while in direct sunlight
If you use computer screens all day, The Advanced Computer eyewear glasses can help with the typical symptoms of prolonged computer use, such as dry eyes caused by a lowering in the blink rate. You can also end up with tired eye muscles from short range focussing and poor light quality from the typical office fluorescent lights. Gunnar’s glasses address each of those issues to make the eyes more comfortable while using a computer screen.
You can check out the new Spring 2012 collection at Gunnars. Prices range from $80 – $300 for standard lenses. You will, however, have to budget up to $700 for custom prescription lenses from Zeiss, but how cool to have Zeiss lenses in your glasses! Now if I could just bump up the RAM!
