GUNNAR products, first and foremost, protect your eyes from blue light. However, some people have multiple eye health concerns. For some, it might be the need for reading glasses with blue light protection, for others sunglasses that block the blue, and of course, there are those who need prescription glasses that shield eyes from blue light. This last group deserves a little more attention. Blue light blocking prescription glasses are a great solution for anyone looking to “kill two birds with one stone.”  Today we’re going to show you three of our favorite GUNNAR prescription blue light glasses, and talk a little about our patented lens technology.

The Lenses

blue light glasses lens with 65 BLPF
blue light sunglasses lens 90 BLPF
sleep glasses lens with maximum blue light protection of 98

blue light glasses amber tint lens

Before we talk about the frames, as cool as our frames are, we have to tell you about our lenses. Our patented lens technology is what sets us apart. GUNNAR lenses come in a range of blue light protection factor (BLPF). The BLPF number associated with the lenses (as shown above) represents the amount of blue light blocked by the lens. Clear lenses offer ample protection with minimal tinting; use these if you are a casual user of technology. Amber lenses provide significantly higher protection than Clear with a light amber tint. Sun lenses provide 90% protection, but are generally only recommended for use outdoors. Our Amber Max lenses provide the highest level of tint and the highest protection with a BLPF of 98. We also offer transition lenses from Clear to Sun (35-90 BLPF) or from Amber to Sun (65-90 BLPF).

All of these lenses are available in prescription, with specialized close-viewing prescription technology. Our prescription lenses are designed specifically for computer use, unlike other lenses. With other prescriptions using a computer can cause eye strain. GUNNAR prescription lenses solve that problem.
