This post over at The Tech Report starts by describing a situation that anyone reading this familar with, how staring at a PC for 8+ hours a day takes a toll on your eyes. So, is it possible that the Gunnar Optiks Computer Glasses could save you some eye ache? It certainly sounds like it from the positive comments these glasses garnered in the review, by a reviewer that is not used to wearing any glasses at all. They are intended for the long haul, as your eyes will need a bit of time to adjust to the glasses, so you won't notice anything during a quick 5 minute email session you might find your eyes much happier after the 5th hour of gaming. As well, The Tech Report warns against using these glasses with Photoshop as the yellow tint to the glasses will have an effect on the colours you perceive. Shame about the logo as well.
"Does staring at a computer screen for hours on end strain your eyes and give you headaches? Gunnar's computer glasses might help. TR's David Morgan tries on a pair in his latest blog post, with surprising results."
