Specifications:

  • Reduces digital eye strain
  • Helps to focus on close up screens
  • Provides sharper, clearer vision
  • Anti-reflective lenses – minimise glare
  • Prevents dry eyes
  • Greatly reduces blue light – various lenses with different ratings from BLPF 35 – 98
  • Multiple lens choices
  • Prescription models available
  • Multiple frame choices

Gunnar have released a range of glasses suitable for kids, the “Cruz” and “Cruz Kids” range. These do not have “Gunnar Focus” that help you naturally focus on close object with a 0.2 prescription. Instead these have “Gunnar Natural Focus”, with no prescription at all, acting as a natural lens whilst still offering blue light protection without hindering young developing eyes.

You can purchase adult (kids versions available too) Gunnar glasses, from Overclockers UK for £44.99 – £99.95, HERE!

Prescription versions can only be purchased from GUNNAR directly (HERE). Users need to provide the prescription to Gunnar letting them know their pupillary distance measurement (which very often isn’t on a prescription as standard so check with your optician on this).

Pros:

  • Completely eradicated our digital eye strain
  • Many styles of frame to choose from
  • Great selection of lens choices
  • Comfortable and great build quality
  • Lenses are high quality and truly help focusing on screens
  • Minimises headaches, dry eyes, eye strain, sleeplessness and more

Cons:

  • Price may put some people off (we think they’re worth it)

KitGuru says: After using these for around the 4-5 week mark I can safely say my digital eye strain has completely gone. Gunnar glasses have truly surprised us with being true to their claims and we think everyone should check them out, especially those with sensitive eyes.
