I, your humble correspondent, doubt that my wife wants me to find anything that would allow me to spend more time on the computer, but if the new Gunnar Optiks i-AMP digital eyewear lives up to claims, I may have to start racking up the “honey-do” points before I order them. Gunnar claims that company’s proprietary combination of lens materials, coatings, tints and geometry will significantly reduce eye strain related to short and long-term computer use. Reducing ocular muscle strain, Gunnar purports, enhanced digital screen viewing with a significant reduction in Digital Eye Fatigue (DEF) and “full blown” Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS).
From company’s website and press release:
Gunnar proprietary lens technology lets you spend more time working or playing at the computer without feeling the adverse effects often associated with doing so. Gunnar i-AMPTM technology relaxes the occular muscle responsible for focusing one’s eyes at close distances. By putting this muscle more at ease, strain is reduced, and productive time increased. Innovative Gunnar frames and lenses increase the moisture pocket around the eyes, virtually eliminating dry eyes. Patent-pending i-AMPTM technology includes a scientifically formulated amber tint to eliminate additional stress placed on the eyes from external light sources such as pervasive flourescent lighting systems. The unique Gunnar anti-reflective coating has also been specially formulated to contribute to the delivery of the most comprehensive over-the-counter solution available today to address the effects of Digital Eye Fatigue and Computer Vision Syndrome.
How GUNNARS Work
Digital Performance Eyewear enhances optical performance with GUNNAR’S patent-pending i-AMP™ lens technology, an optical platform that includes the following components:
diAMIX™ lens material offers an optically pure viewing experience with ultra-light, ergonomic properties; iONik™ lens tint takes artificial light and precisely tunes it to the physiology of the eye; i-Fi™ lens coatings capture good light from digital screens while filtering out glare and reflective light; and fRACTYL™ lens geometry mimics nature to aid the natural focusing power of the corneal lens and creates a preferential ocular microclimate
