PRICE DROP!

These just dropped another $10 overnight!
(Thanks to Bigb0ss for reporting the new price. He saved me another $10 plus tax!)

I was looking for a deal on Gunnar gaming/computer glasses to cut down on eyestrain while using my computer and mobile gear, and found that Best Buy had the Gunnar Scope glasses on clearance for $34.95!

These are still over $70 a pair on Amazon, Newegg, and Staples websites, and are $99 a pair on Gunnar's website.

There were a couple of stores about 30-40 miles away from me that still had them in stock, but since they wouldn't get transferred to the store close to me until Friday, I chose the free 2-day shipping from BestBuy.com. An easy deal since they are still in stock online, and also excellent for local price matching if you don't want to wait a couple of days for them.

You will need to add a small five cent filler, or maybe the extended warranty to get the price to $35 for free shipping.

*If you purchased these yesterday at the $44.95 price, you can just call Best Buy for a price match to their own website. I just got a $10 plus tax refund on my order. No muss, no fuss.

I thought I'd ask. I mean aside from getting prescription glasses tinted yellow etc....

I have yellow tinted glasses like the video game glasses that I need for seeing UV dye in conjunction with a UV light.

I have always wondered if I could just wear those?

For PC you can also download flux which is a blue light filter for free and achieves the same results. https://justgetflux.com

Yep, I downloaded it and tried it. You can set the filter to several different settings if the standard working late yellow is just yellow for your screen.

I did just that. I have a Gunnar and prescription glasses that's tinted yellow. It's different because the Gunnar has a mild + prescription so it's like looking through a fish bowl. Also, the glasses are shaped in such a way to hug your face so the wind/air doesn't dry your eyes. Finally, the tint itself is a bit different shade than what you would normally get. I prefer the Gunnar's over my own shaded lenses.

Except it does nothing for the eyestrain caused by non-incandescent lighting, and just changing the color doesn't affect the UV light which is bad for your eyes and messes up your sleep cycle. Seeing less of the color blue doesn't fix those things. Flux is sort of a first step to see if maybe blue filtering might help, but it's more of a bandaid approach than a cure.

Thank you for posting this! You just saved me another $10 plus tax on this deal. Just called Best Buy for a price match to their own website. Easy peasy refund of the difference.

Was lucky to have a store with 1 pair in stock, really was looking for these since last year. I tried the Gunnar Intercept style last year and wasn't a fan.

LCD monitors dont emit UV light, older CRTs did and even then it was a fairly small amount.

He was referring to the people who might be wearing these in an office environment not the type of backlighting in a monitor I think.

Rather walk into a store than wait for them to get shipped and delivered, process takes like 3-5 days.
