Gunnar Eyewear; Engineered To Eliminate Digital Eye Strain & Block Blue Light

Over twenty years ago we didn’t think what the negative impact on your eyes would be spending large amounts of time on digital devices.  Currently, roughly 70% of Americans today suffer from some form of digital eye strain.

“Competing research has shown blue light-filtering lenses decrease specific aspects of light emissions. Theoretical reductions in phototoxicity were 10.6% to 23.6%. Additionally, melatonin suppression was reduced by 5.8% to 15.0% and scotopic sensitivity by 2.4% to 9.6%. Over 70% of the participants in this testing were unable to detect these changes. The expansion of technology has led to more individuals utilizing computers and televisions which increase the overall exposure to blue light. This has opened up opportunities for companies such as Gunnar Optiks and Razer Inc. to create glasses focused on reducing the exposure to blue light.”*

During an independent study conducted at three eye care professional locations, over 150 patients were interviewed before and after using GUNNAR Technology Eyewear throughout a multi-week test involving intense computer use. The study showed the following results.

  • 100% of the patients reported improved ease of viewing
  • 96% of the patients reported reduction in eye strain
  • 90% of the patients would recommend the use of GUNNAR eyewear
  • 80% of the patients reported their eyes were less tired when wearing GUNNARs
  • 79% of the patients said that wearing GUNNAR eyewear increased their productivity
