From computer screens to cell phones, the relentless visual assault is frying your eyes. Gunnar has resolved this problem and launched into for rescuing people’s eyes.

Based on the intensive study and research on the human eye and its interaction with digital devices, Gunnar has produced the Digital Performance Eyewear, which helps computer users be more productive and more effective throughout the day. With Gunnar’s i-AMP lens technology - an optical platform that incorporates proprietary lens materials, tints, coatings and geometry, one gets an immediate and noticeable visual advantage in the short term, and better performance and protection in the long term. The performance eyewear line also helps prevent Digital Eye Fatigue (DEF) and protects against Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS), a visual condition that impairs the eyesight of millions of computer users each year.

These advanced glasses are designed for both function and style for the sophisticated, image-conscious digital user. When you’re ready to protect your eyes, the Gunnar Catalyst Metal Rocket Digital Performance Eyewear will help you achieve your goals.

  • newegg i-FI Lens Coatings I-Fi lens coatings consist of four layers of coatings to filter transmitted light and protect the lens: an anti-reflective portion cuts glare and distracting extraneous light, hydrophobic component keeps water spots to a minimum, oleophobic coating provides resistance to smudging and fingerprints, and a final hard coat reduces environmental wear and minimizes scratching.
  • newegg fRACTYL Lens Geometry GUNNAR fRACTYL lens geometry mimics nature using advanced science and engineering to aid the natural focusing power of the eye, allowing the cilliary muscles (the muscles that shape your cornea) to relax. Additionally, the wrapped geometry of the lens sits close to the eye and face, helping maintain the healthy humidity levels in the eye.
  • newegg iONik Lens Tints GUNNAR iONik lens tint limits distracting blue light frequencies that are overproduced by phosphors in the bulbs, only allowing light from an optimal spectrum to pass through the lens, resulting in clearer images, less eye strain and increased visual efficiency.
  • newegg DiAMIX Lens Material With better resilience than a cast compound and better optics than an injected compound, diAMIX lens material not only offers superior optics, but also pushes the limits on frame and lens geometry without the restraints of typical off-the-shelf market solutions.
  • newegg Premium Frame System Designed with visual endurance in mind, the frame system is engineered for optimal weight, comfort and durability.

5 out of 5 eggsRyply to siing's review

Pros: Im glad they work for you to a degree, but I assure you that after using them a while you will notice the effect they have on your eyes when gaming. The reduced eye stain and such is the fact that gunnars gaming eye ware have a clearer site for looking at screens which reduces the straining of the eyes as well Gunnars provide less air flow to your eyes making them less strained and keeps them from drying out fast to keep your eyes at a better level of hydration. You may not take notice to these effect till using for a couple weeks depending on your level of use. I started to feel the decreased air flow and strain after 1 week of constant use on 8+ hours a day. Keeping the air flow out makes your length of which you can focus without stain and the effect of stamina for long sessions of gaming or looking at a screen.

Cons: It varies per person on when you feel the difference, Eating healthy and cutting out caffeine and fast food and microwaved foods may cut the length of your gaming potential and reduce or delay the full effects of these performance glasses.

Other Thoughts: Do not base your final decision of theses till at least a month of use to give time to feel full effects. If you use prescription eye glasses, go through Gunnars site to custom order your glasses to meet your normal glasses prescription is highly reqremended.

Pros: So far, I think I really like these. The light tint makes a noticeable difference to the brightness of the monitor (in a good way).

Cons: I can't honestly tell if my eyes are "less strained" or "less tired", Which is why I'm still on the fence if I really like them or not.

They don't double as driving glasses very well =/

Other Thoughts: I use them for high end gaming (BF3/SC2) as well as general computer work (spread sheets/programing) so I get the full effect. Nothing I've done so far has been impeded.
