Welcome to the Digital Generation
We are wired to a media-rich, networked world of infinite possibility. Visually connected to computers, tablets, phones and games – peering into an abyss of high-energy visible(HEV) blue light for hours can disrupt your entire system; your eyes, neck and back, circadian rhythms and over all health. Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) has become a common problem for our digital generation. Nearly 70 percent of U.S. adults experience digital eye strain as a result of increasing use of digital devices. Cumulative exposure to HEV light can contribute to vision problems such as cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.
- Reduces Digital Eye Strain – Eye Fatigue, dry eyes and headaches are symptoms of spending too much time in front of a digital screen. GUNNAR lens design has extra focusing power providing you sharper, clearer vision. This patented technology helps you focus more naturally creating less eye strain.
- Improves Comfort and Focus – The overabundance of bright artificial light can create a strain on your eyes. But GUNNAR custom lens tints and filters block harsh blue light and glare so your eyes can finally relax. Focus Longer. Work more efficiently. Be comfortable doing it.
- Protects Your Eyes – Look around you. You probably work in an environment filled with fluorescent light, glare, and uncomfortable air currents. GUNNAR patented lens technology reduces glare and prevents dry eyes.
Limits air currents near the eyes, increasing humidity and preventing irritation. The patented optical design enhances focus and sharpens detail to ease eye strain.
Individual blink rate is decreased by approximately 60 percent when using a computer or near distance work, consequently, protective tear film layers are replenished less frequently, leaving eyes irritated, dry, and exposed to environmental damage. Long term effects may include abrasion, erosion, and scarring of the cornea. Our highly wrapped frame limits air currents and increases humidity to form a protective barrier around the eye. Continuous flexion of ciliary muscles during long periods of near distance viewing can cause blurred vision, difficulty focusing, double vision and eye strain. Our Lens Design pre-focuses the light allowing ciliary muscles to relax while details appear sharper.
Dry eyes can cause irritation and impair normal visual function. GUNNARS increase humidity levels and reduce muscular strain resulting in eyes that are refreshed, protected and able to function more comfortably and efficiently.
GUNNAR lens material eliminates distortion from impurities and haze found in inferior materials to ensure the clearest image possible. The ultralight yet durable, performance optics will not degrade over time.
Traditional lens materials compromise on clarity, color control, durability or impact resistance. GUNNAR lens material is the only lens that optimizes durability and impact resistance while maintaining the highest degree of clarity and color control. With minimal haze and ultra-sharp optics, lenses appear crystal clear. The high degree of color control within the lenses also enables GUNNARS to handle engineered tints and bandpass filters properly with no bi-refringence or edge effects found in other lens materials. The highly durable material creates stable optics that won’t permanently deform when flexed or degrade over time through repeated use.
Our lens materials offer an optically pure viewing experience with ultra-light, ergonomic properties that provide: • Low density with lighter lenses • Higher light transmission rate that enhances clarity • Higher ABBE value for distortion free viewing • Medium index of refraction (1.51) allows for thinner lenses than CR39
GUNNAR lens coatings reduce glare and reflective light to eliminate visual distraction and stress. An external hard coat provides extended lens durability and resists scratching.
GUNNAR Lens Coatings have anti-reflective properties that reduce reflections and glare. Without distracting reflections, eyes can focus more efficiently. While some eyewear may have anti-reflective properties on the front portion of the lens, reflected light from the eye itself can be distracting on the inside of the lens. GUNNAR uses the anti-reflection coating on both sides of the lens for a clear view.
An external hard coat make GUNNAR eyewear extremely durable. Low quality lenses can degrade over time due to the buildup of haze inducing oils and surface abrasion and damage from usage lowers the optical performance.
GUNNAR lens coatings have an outer, protective hard coat to resist scratching and maintain optical integrity over time. Additional treatments prevent oil buildup from penetrating the lens material and promote easy cleaning and care.
Reducing external sources of visual light and glare, minimizes the amount of work your eyes perform to focus on a task. GUNNAR’S Lens Coatings optimize the environment by eliminating visual noise. The protective outer layer also provides lasting durability and lens performance over time.
