20 YEARS OF DIGITAL EYE STRAIN REDUCTION
GUNNAR set out to solve a problem. We pioneered and patented the optics behind digital eye strain relief. With almost two decades as the market leader, we’re not done innovating.
MAJOR CAUSES OF DIGITAL EYE STRAIN
Intense computer use reduces blink rate up to 60% exposing sensitive corneal tissue to damage
MUSCULAR EYE STRAIN
Extended near-distance viewing fatigues eye muscles that flex to create near distance focus
ARTIFICIAL, HIGH ENERGY LIGHT
High energy blue light strains visual systems and and affect circadian rhythms and sleep
GLARE AND VISUAL NOISE
Reflections, glare, and unwanted light sources create visual conflicts with the screen
BEYOND BLUE LIGHT PROTECTION
USE GUNNAR PATENTED TECHNOLOGY TO ADDRESS ALL MAJOR CAUSES OF DIGITAL EYE STRAIN
Prevent Dry Eyes: GUNNAR patented high wrap lenses trap in humidity and block out drying air currents. The technology keeps eyes comfortably protected with an ideal ocular microclimate.LEARN MORE ABOUT DRY EYES
Reduce Muscular Eye Strain: GUNNAR provides optimized focusing power in most lenses to let your eyes relax. Choose the right focusing power for your needs.LEARN MORE ABOUT MUSCULAR EYE STRAIN
Block Blue Light: GUNNAR carefully filters the light spectrum to eliminate high energy spikes and cut blue light. The GUNNAR BLUE LIGHT FILTER ® (GBLF) rating tells you exactly the percentage of blue light blocked. Choose the right tint for your needs.LEARN MORE ABOUT BLUE LIGHT
Limit Glare: GUNNAR GSHIELD® coatings come with a variety of performance levels to eliminate glare, reflections and visual noises as fingerprints or water spots.LEARN MORE ABOUT GLARE
COMPUTER USE SLOWS BLINK RATE
Dry Eye is the number one symptom of digital eye fatigue. Extended computer use slows the blink rate and leaves delicate eye issues exposed to drying air currents.
KEEP MOISTURE CLOSE AND AIR CURRENTS OUT
Properly fitted GUNNAR eyewear has been shown to double the relative humidity of the eye pocket. Choose a frame that fits your face well. For extreme dry eye relief, consider our Tallac style with patented side shields that offer extra protection.
Post LASIK? One of the most common side effects of corrective eye surgery is dry eye. Protect your investments and use GUNNAR eyewear while looking at screens.
LET THE LENSES DO THE WORK
Extraocular and intraocular ciliary eye muscles work in tandem to put your screen in focus. Long sessions without breaks can overwork those eye muscles. GUNNAR patented lenses provide focusing power that allow the eye muscles to relax during extended digital screen time.
0.2 GUNNAR FOCUS
Our most popular option: A slight focusing power to relax eye muscles. Good for anyone with 20/20 vision (including contact wearers or post-LASIK patients).Shop Gunnar Focus
+1.0 TO +3.0 READING

0.0 NEUTRAL FOCUS
No focusing power. Good for developing eyes (youth) or slight myopes (negative prescriptions) and distance viewing outdoors.SHOP NEUTRAL FOCUS
Visit our Prescription page and learn about lens types and insurance coverage options.LEARN MORE ABOUT PRESCRIPTION
Eye focus affects your entire posture. People with myopic tendencies may compensate by leaning in to get closer to the screen. Presbyopic or hyperopic people may lean back or try to get more distance from the screen. We recommend a focusing power that promotes a neutral posture.
For a custom prescription, measure the distance from your screen to your eyes before you visit a doctor.
BLOCK BLUE LIGHT
More than two decades ago, GUNNAR patented the optimal light transmission curve to offset high peaks of energy emitted from artificially backlit screens.
We offer a variety of tints and are proud to publish the GBLF rating for each.*
For extreme photosensitivity and sleep control
Blocks 98% of blue light at 450nm
Uses: sleep improvement, migraine management, post concussion treatment
For outdoor digital device viewing
Blocks 90% of blue light at 450nm
Uses: automotive, aerospace or sea navigation, outdoor sports with digital performance monitors, digital work in outdoor environments.
THE BEST LENSES HAVE THE BEST COATINGS: GUNNAR GSHIELD COATINGS
- Glare and reflections
- Water spots
- Anti-reflective coating: Reduce reflections and glare from external light sources
- Hard Coat: Provides surface toughness to resist scratching
- Oleophobic coatings: Repels oils and reduces fingerprints or smudges from skin contact
- Hydrophobic coatings: Repels water causing it to bead up and fall off
G-SHIELD COATINGS COME IN A VARIETY OF PERFORMANCE LEVELS (DEPENDING ON PRICE)LEARN ABOUT PERFORMANCE LEVELS
The human retina has almost no blue light receptors in the fovea centralis (the sensitive part used for central vision) while digital screens emit a proportionally larger amount of blue light than other colors. GUNNAR’s patented lens tint filters light into a mixture that the eye perceives more comfortably. The end result: higher perceived contrast and a screen that appears sharp and crisp.Shop All
CLINICALLY TESTED, DOCTOR RECOMMENDED
“Many individuals experience eye discomfort and vision problems when viewing digital screens for extended periods. The level of discomfort appears to increase with the amount of digital screen use. The average American worker spends seven hours a day on the computer either in the office or working from home.” American Optometric Association
“GUNNAR’s patented lens technology is designed to address the symptoms of digital eye strain. Their experience since 2006, and constant innovation on the latest research, is what sets them apart. I recommend GUNNAR gaming and computer glasses to all of my patients!”
Miki Lyn Zilnicki, O.D., F.C.O.V.D
In a study done at three independent doctor locations with over 100 test subjects, 96% of respondents reported an easing of digital eye strain symptoms when using GUNNAR over a six week period.
