Have you heard of Gunnar Eye Wear? The Blue Light Blocking Glasses. Let me tell you about them

Updated: Jan 25, 2020


Computer screens, IPad screen's, cellphone screens, everywhere you look, people are looking at some screen.

I know for myself looking at a computer too long gives me headaches. At times my vision seems strained and even blurred.

Thankfully I have come across a pair of glasses for computer wear.

I was skeptical at first about trying these new glasses that have a "blue light blocking protection and an anti-reflective lens coating for pristine visual clarity." Though how can I not want to try these glasses?

I had placed an order for the Onyx Jasper frame with the amber tint.

When the order came in, I was excited and was in anticipation and eager to put on the glasses and try them.

The Gunnar glasses passed way beyond my expectations, and honestly, it was like opening the best Christmas gift.

The Gunnar glasses are amazing!


  • High-quality acetate material

  • Lightweight construction and proper weight balance guarantee long wearing comfort without pressure points or fatigue

  • Wide format lenses create a panoramic viewing field for high-resolution viewing

  • Anti-reflective lens coating on front and back

  • Proprietary patented GUNNAR lens material and tint

  • Blocks harmful blue light and 100% UV light

  • Asian Fit Compatible

The glasses make such a huge difference as I mentioned it past my expectations.

With these fantastic glasses, the headaches aren't as frequent, the glare is down, and the difference it makes is day and night.

I may have to look into investing in another pair, though.

I have a teenager in my home who plays computer games non stop. I let him borrow the glasses for a bit to try them out and had to negotiate to get them back.

He was trying to claim them as his own, for he experienced the same thing I did. The brightness of the screen was toned down and made better screen time playing. The strain of the eyes wasn't there while using these glasses.

I am delighted and thrilled that I was able to get a pair of Gunnar glasses and let you know precisely how they are.

You can read all about the glasses below.

Valentine's Day is coming up; it's a great way to say I love you.
