How has wearing GUNNARS benefitted my daily health?

In this blog post, iluminatethesky shares his reflections on how GUNNAR patented lens technology has improved their health and experiences with digital screens. 

As we all know, staring at computer screens, TVs, or other electronic devices for long periods of time can definitely cause eye strain and other side effects such as headaches, migraines, dry eyes and fatigue. According to a 2022 UC Davis study, constant exposure to blue light over time could damage retinal cells and cause vision problems such as age-related macular degeneration. Additionally, prolonged exposure to digital screens can also be linked to restlessness, sleep issues, and fatigue.


Using GUNNAR eyewear is very beneficial, because the patented lens technology reduces the side effects when using digital devices for long periods of time. The blue light glasses that GUNNAR provides protects Users against headaches, migraines, dry eyes, blurred vision, and long term effects of being in front of a computer screen or other devices such as Laptops, Tablets, even mobile devices. Over time, these side effects will become less common, and will happen less often as opposed to not using Gunnar eyewear.

I noticed that while wearing GUNNARs, I’ve been able to have longer gaming sessions with friends without having headaches, eye strain, and rubbing my eyes every 30 minutes or so. When I did not have these glasses, I often woke up with headaches and migraines every morning from staring at my TV or computer monitor for long periods of time.

In short, if you are looking to protect your eyes from harmful blue light during those long work days, gaming sessions, or even watching TV, GUNNAR is definitely the product for you. They come in different styles, and also are available in Prescription if you choose to wear them throughout the entire day! While you are shopping for a pair that best suits your face shape, you can try the “Virtual Try On” option before you make a purchase.
