Gunnar eyewear makes fashion forward and ready to wear safety glasses that are available in prescription and nonprescription. Gunnar Optiks knows that sometimes prolonged screen usage can be unavoidable, and their objective is to protect your eyes while also making you look great.
Gunnar Optiks was started in 2007, with passion for combating computer vision syndrome. The company was founded after one of the co founder’s family members was diagnosed with the syndrome that left his eyes itchy, uncomfortable, and red after working in front of a screen all day. After their founding, the tech industry quickly recognized the necessity of protective eyewear, and began adopting Gunnar lenses to help combat this problem.
Today, Gunnar Eyewear can be seen on many internet celebrities such as Ninjas in Pajamas (a Swedish gaming group) and Chloe Dykstra (an internet star who is also well known in the cosplay and gaming community). Gunnar Eyewear has been featured in publications like the Huffington Post and PC World.
Gunnar Eyewear has patented new technology to help overcome computer vision syndrome. Their patented lens technology combats digital eye strain and the effect of blue, artificial light on the naked eye. Lenses provide sharper focus and come in custom tints to protect your vision. All Gunnar computer glasses have a patented yellow tint. Lenses wrap around eyes to keep them from losing moisture, which decreases redness and irritation. Lenses also provide UV protection that will not degrade over time.
Gunnar computer eyeglasses are available for men and for women. Certain frames are available in a variety of colors to fit your personal style. They feature classic frame types that are also durable. Frames are rimless, semi rimless, and full frame. Gunnar glasses are comfortable and also is available with prescription lenses so you can wear them for hours.
