**REDUCED** Gunnar Optiks Computer Eyewear (Phenom Onyx) Now Only £26.33 @ Amazon.co.uk

Found 11th Aug 2014
**IN STOCK AND REDUCED AGAIN TO £26.33
SOLD BY AMAZON.CO.UK**

As I use the computer for work and gaming I am often subject to eye fatigue.
Further to a bit of research, I found a company called 'Gunnar Optiks'
gunnars.com
shop.gunnars.com/phe…100

Please note: This set of glasses is designed for people with 20/20 vision or corrected 20/20 vision (contacts).

These glasses usually retail around £80 and in my opinion are worth it to mitigate eye fatigue.

To further build on my comment, this item was listed as 'out of stock' when I made my order. It seems Amazon has not corrected their stock figure???

Oh well, it's worth a shot in my opinion, even if it helps a few people out who are not in an immediate rush to receive their product.
As the old saying goes... Good things come to those who wait!

Not to start a dispute but can this be installed on work computers (without IT consent), mobile phones, tablets, etc...
Gunnar Optiks are designed to reduce screen glare and also provide slight magnification, making things easier to read on the screen.

Seems a good programme but may not be available to everyone and may not suit everybodys needs.

I will continue to use my Gunnar Optiks as they work flawlessly.

Not sure why this has been expired - they may be temporarily out of stock but you can still purchase them at the lowest price I can find anywhere and nearly the lowest they have ever been on Amazon.

Don't know if I believe all the hype but for the price I've taken a punt - if they don't work I should be able to ebay them for a profit.
I'd vote hot if this deal hadn't been expired.

People, particularly medical professionals, underestimate the effects of blue spectrum light at the wrong time of day. Sure, most people aren't susceptible to the harm it can do to sleep patterns and brain function but some of us are. Our evolution has built us to expect less and less blue light as evening approaches and a complete absence of it during sleeping hours. Plants use this to trigger day/night and seasonal behaviour - it's fundamental to how life works.

Screens don't help.

A sciencey article
BluBlockers.com <= I wear these and they block 100% of blue light and help me sleep
+1 for f.lux , my PC and laptop screens are set to warm their colour spectrum at about 10pm
LifeHacker article on f.lux

Minor rant over, thanks OP, heated

It was expired then unexpired (thank you mods), I was skeptical about the reviews but as I type now wearing them, you realise how bright and harsh screens are without them.
Don't get me wrong, you won't become dependant on them but they certainly help.
For example, when I am on my 46" screen linked to my PC at night with no lights on I certainly feel my eyes fatigue. However, with these glasses, I do not feel that my eyes burn or am I straining to view the white backgrounds of web browsers.
Other users have commented on the positives to gaming that targets become more visible and the glasses aid the users to blink more rather than stare and again contribute to fatigue.

As yourself, I bought them with an intent to see how they go and if not bang them on ebay for a nice tidy profit.
Alternatively, Amazon accept free returns so ultimately there is no risk.

It seems that this is a one off and probably won't hang around too long once the HUKD crew get involved!!!

what material is the frame made of?

Plastic or Metal?

Aluminum/Magnesium Alloy

The frame is metal. Aluminum/Magnesium Alloy to be precise.
They are very durable and accommodate many head sizes (I for one have a large head and these fit great)
The nose guides can be adjusted also for a greater fit

There are various pictures, specifications and also a video, hopefully that helps.

I have bought these without reading what they are or what they do. From the image and name alone I expect to be able to see through walls and occasionally ten minutes into the future.

Have some heat.

F.Lux for sure.

I drop the temp down to 5500k for day and at night it drops to 3500K, awesome!
Also for graphic/colour work i just disable it for 1hr.

A lot of companies would be keen to be told about Flux and then it's just a case of works IT getting it installed. Most employers where staff use VDUs dont even know about FLux and should be encouraged to check it out for home use also.

Just had a confirmation email saying my order on the 11th of August will be with me on 18th so these are on a 1 week delivery period.

What about no-scope glasses?

Now in stock and reduced to £26.33!!!

Just use the toffee penny sweet wrappers from quality streets and pop them over your eyes.

Well i've been using flux for years and it helps a little but doesnt solve my fatigue. I've looked into gunnars before and never bothered but at this price why not i'll give them a try.

I find that stops me getting eye strain.

This is awesome, one thing I have noticed though is that the mouse cursor stays really bright, I guess that doesn't have too much of an effect but it does stand out. I think this app is quite awesome!

me too ;-)

Great glasses. I have a set of the prescription lens Gunnar Optics. I can highly recommend them for people who use a computer for long periods of time.

But yeah, these ones are for people with 20/20 vision, which most people aren't, even most people who think they are aren't. I thought I had 20/20 vision til I was persuaded to go for a free eye test which revealed I have astigmatism in my left eye. I never even noticed that I used to squint alot to read things.

Heat, for awesome price.

I'm short sighted and wear prescription glasses for long distance so presumably these should be okay for computer work or reading. Id go for the prescription ones but the prices are so extortionate and without knowing if they really work..

Ordered for £29.09! Cheers OP!

Statistical analysis revealed no significant difference between the Gunnar Optiks design and the control glasses under these conditions.

It means they don't have any corrective ability. What you see with them on (in terms of vision correction) will be no different.

I found out where the people from no-scope get their gaming glasses from, so I ordered a pair .. It cost me less than a £1 delivered and they are identical.

Avoid noscopeglasses.com/

Also, avoid paying extortionate prices for Gunnar Optiks; they do work, but they are NOT worth the money.

Prescription versions are a little bit different as theirs a bit more involved, but the non-corrective yellow tinted ones are over priced. You will get the same result from any yellow tinted glasses.

Ditto!

CRAZYAL you've been on HUKD for 8 years and 1 week, yet you've never once posted a deal for anyone to benefit from. Everyone else on this post bar you and one other has, so how about you reserve your judgement and comments until you have?

If anyone should be getting ignored here, it should be those "freeloaders" that don't even bother to post deals and just turn up to reap the benefits of those who do.

Happy to help mate

My gunnars arrived today and i must admit after all i have read over the years i thought they were a gimmick but they really seem to be helping. I work 8+ hours a day on a computer and i can usually feel my eyes burning from the strain around about this time but i've been wearing the gunnars all day and so far have felt no eye fatigue at all. Whether or not this is just a one off or the gunnars are really working only time will tell but first day wearing them i'm well impressed. May have to get a prescription version of these so i can use them with the big screen!
