In the world of computing today, there are many companies and brands which provide a multitude of products. Ranging from the budget conscientious to the high end enthusiast, there is massive selection of products available on the market. Whether you’re a general computer user or a professional gamer, computer screens and other digital devices can cause a condition called Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) which causes a variety of symptoms such as headaches, neck pain, eye strain and difficulty in refocusing your eyes. With many brands providing healthier solutions to use your PC’s including products such as padded mouse mats and keyboard wrist rests to combat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, one company in particular has dedicated themselves to reducing the effects of CVS on our eyes.

GUNNAR Optiks was created in 2007 by Jennifer Michelsen and Joe Croft, together they set out to eradicate the main cause of Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) by designing eyewear for people who are subjected to viewing digital screens on a regular basis. Their main purpose is to reduce the strain placed on the eyes and also the fatigue this causes. With many different styles and colours available, there is a massive range available to suit graphic designers, gamers, general users and even those who need prescription glasses. With a huge array of products supported by global brands such as Carl Zeiss, SteelSeries, Monster and even Happy Madison Productions, the sky’s the limit for GUNNAR Optiks who are currently based in Carlsbrad California USA.

Today we will be taking a look and trying out one from their general range, the Vinyl Onyx Amber.

What GUNNAR have to say about the Vinyl Onyx

Mastered with the best of both worlds, VINYL’S modern digital lines combine with a vintage silhouette. Aluminium-magnesium forged temples and thermoplastic rubber sockets put ergonomics and durability onto the same track. Spring hinges and three dimensionally adjustable nose pads allow precise tuning of the fit while large lens sizing turns up the visual volume. A tech spin on classic styling.
