5 out of 5 eggsYour eyes' new best friend.

Pros: -Reduce eye fatigue
-Fit comfortably
-Increase the amount of time one can comfortably use a computer.
-Nice styling

Cons: -They seem rather fragile.
-They get dirty VERY easily.
-They don't play well with all headsets.

Other Thoughts: I was very skeptical when I first head about these. But, my curiosity got the better of me and I decided to get a pair, when I saw that Newegg was carrying them and for a very good price. I am VERY glad I gave these a shot. Between gaming, audio editing, and just boredom, I tend to sit at the computer for very long periods of time. I instantly noticed that my eyes felt less dried out and strained while wearing these. The headaches that I would sometimes get after long sessions have significantly reduced. I also find that it's much easier to read on screen text. Whether it be searching for files, or reading long passages on a webpage or in a digital book.

I can tell that the lenses are making a difference in the harshness of the light from the screen. As, anytime I take them off, I instantly squint. The tint does take a few days to fully get used to. But, it's not a drastic change. I hardly notice the change when I put them on, anymore.

The frames do seem a bit flimsy. But, if you're not rough with them, there shouldn't be an issue. I've had them for almost a year, and they seem to be holding up quite well.

The one thing that does REALLY bother me about these glasses is that they pick up dust and smudges like a magnet. Even if you just sat down from a shower, if you bump the lens with any part of your skin, there's GOING to be a smudge. So, you'll definitely want to keep a microfiber cloth handy. I clean mine, on average, 2 to 3 times a day.

But, all in all, I'm very glad to have gotten these glasses. I highly recommend them to anyone who looks at a screen (computer, TV, etc.) for extended periods of time. They work equally well for editing, gaming, watching movies, web browsing, reading ebooks, etc.

5 out of 5 eggsThey really work

Pros: I was really surprised how well these actually work. It takes a couple days to get used to them but after that you real;y don't want to take them off. I use them at work in IT and at home during gaming and they really help reduce the strain on my eyes!

Cons: I might would recommend bigger lenses for someone who glances at your keyboard on occasion, its odd looking down and not seeing through the lenses and then looking back up through them. The RPG seems like a good choice - I would buy those I think if I were to purchase again.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth the investment.

Pros: Lightweight and stylish. These glasses work as advertised. I had my doubts but they work great. I am in front of a screen for 10 hours a day and my eyes feel great at the end of the day. Anyone who does IT work should own these. They are not just for play.

Cons: Worse thing about these glasses is you have to get use to them. The first few days I had them I wanted to take them off and not use them again.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Glasses

Pros: Well I would like to say that I have really dry eyes naturally as a side effect of Accutane, and while in school and work I would stare at a computer sometimes for 12+ hours a day. These really helped with the extended periods of eye strain. They do help and depending on the style, they don't look that bad. I have a lot of compliments. A must buy for those who play games or work in front of a computer for extended periods of time.

Cons: Really fragile! I knew they were before I bought them from other reviews, but I must take a star away for the price to quality ratio.

5 out of 5 eggsWOW A MUST BUY!

Pros: Very Lightwheight and comfortable.
Color Scheme is amazing.
Case is nice to have around.
Keeps my eyes well hydrated during long sessions of gaming.
Headaches from eyestrain are no longer experienced.

Cons: Have to get used to the AMBER Color
Kinda hard to keep clean.
Slight Glare from my keyboard lights, no big deal.

Other Thoughts: First time wearing these glasses I spent 4 hours playing Left 4 Dead 2 with some friends. At the end of our last campaign they all started ditching me because thier eyes all hurt, after they ditched me I played another 2 vs maps and went to bed with well hydrated eyes and no headaches.

A must buy for any Gamer!
