Hey guys just wondering if anyone uses any sort of PC and/or Gaming Glasses, from browsing the internet to marathon gaming sessions.
Curious to see how people rate them, i'm interested in buying a pair of Gunnar Optik's, rrp $79+shipping. Not sure if to take the plunge and try them out or if they're just a gimmick.
Post your review's, thoughts, advice below :)
Just came to realise that maybe I should be trying to save my eyes, while PC/console gaming, and probably just browsing the web.
IF you happen to know regular glasses that will have the same effect please link me away :)
any help is greatly appreciated!
These are nothing special. I've worn corrective glasses for the last 2 decades, so I've picked up some of the jargon. Many of the features Gunnar presents as 'revolutionary' and 'unique' are in fact very much standard.
These glasses will work, so they're not technically a scam. However, they are overpriced gimmicks, and I wouldn't reward this kind of marketing double-speak by making a purchase. Visit your local optician and you'll likely be able to find roughly the same, for less.

I have been thinking about getting some type of glasses like that to help my eyes. I notice I can't quite zero in on small print like I could a year ago. Yeah, I realize I am not getting any younger, but sitting in front of a monitor for long hours can definitely strain the eyes. It probably wouldn't hurt to see an eye doctor, but I just had a CDL physical and I am still at 20/20 vision. 80 bucks is a lot of cash for something that may or may not work, but is a small price to pay for something that could save your eyes I guess.
