Might get these. I go to fighting game tournaments sometimes and my eyes are fairly fatigued at the end of the day. I'm a software engineer so I'm used to staring at screens all day, but I can set my monitors to low brightness, etc.
Thanks for this posting. I've been looking for Gunnars again. I purchased some at Best Buy but I felt it was over priced so I returned them. Though they do enhance contrast and reduce eye strain for sure during those long use periods. For 40 bucks shipped , you can't go wrong. For 120 bucks at Best Buy or Frys it's debatable. If you game or look at multiple screens alot these are really really good for that purpose. I do my Masters program online so I need 2 screens to go back and forth for writing paper and doing research , these glasses really help so you don't have to strain when your trying to refocus your eye on a portion of the webpage.
I have a pair of Gunnars that I bought in the last round of Woot deals. I really love them, but they actually increase my eyestrain so I don't use them. They're high quality and the lenses are fantastic. My problem is that I have a multimonitor setup with a 30" primary screen 2 1/2 feet from my face. The magnification just makes it too big, so it hurts my eyes in my case. Still, I think they're really great at this price and even though I don't use them I don't regret having them around...dunno why.
I use a 30" primary too along with a 20" on the side as a 2nd monitor. You need to be at least 3.5 feet away and make sure the top of the screen doesn't exceed 2 inch above your head to get proper viewing posture. It's bad when you need to turn your head just to look at a portion of the screen. Eventually your eyes and your neck will start to show signs of stress.
I bought a pair of these and they really do work. They are tinted yellow and have a coating on them that reflects blue light. If you look at the lenses you can see the blue light being reflected. They have a very slight magnification to them as well which is helpful. Wearing them right now. If you aren't on the computer all day though you may not find yourself wearing them regularly. I'm not sure that flux is really a suitable alternative, as just turning the color temperature down on your monitor really doesn't seem to do nearly as much as these glasses, but I haven't compared it extensively. Also, I work under flourescent lighting and they help with the light reflection off my white workspace as well.
Not quite. If you buy something you don't end up liking or you have what marketing people call "buyer's remorse," sell it on Craigslist or at a garage sale. It's likely you'll make money doing this and save everyone a hassle. If the item doesn't work, first, find out what you're doing wrong. Yes, we know you think the item is bad, but it's probably your fault. Google your problem, or come back to that product discussion in our community and ask other people if they know. Try to call the manufacturer and ask if they know. If you give up and must return it to us, then follow on to the next FAQ entry.
How do I return a defective product?
Unless we specifically tell you not to, call the manufacturer of the product you bought. You will likely get a replacement of a new model or better item from them. If we still haven't dissuaded you, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your woot order number, the name of the product you are returning, and the detailed problem with the item. We will respond with return authorization by the next business day. Because we aren't likely to have a replacement in stock, you should be prepared for a refund-only option if that's all we can do. Know that return freight will be at your expense. Again, you will probably get a better deal from the manufacturer, or whoever else handling member service for that product.
