    Hi brahs

    So lately I have been having issues with my freaking eyes being all blurry after a day of work + gaming. Since im starting to get old I can't really keep up with my pro-gamer ways any more without the necessary tools to do so! I work in front of a computer screen 8 hours a day, I use tablets and smarphones as well. Then I come home and game for another 6 hours minimum almost every day. I'm also looking to buy a really advanced chair but that's a different story.

    This has taken a huge toll on my eyes making them really tired and blurry when I get off work and making me tired as fuck towards the evening. Done some reading up and found these GUNNAR glasses. People say they really help both for work and gaming. http://www.gunnars.com/

    So I ordered a Steelseries version of it, mostly because of the frames being so minimal and they don't block my field of view. http://steelseries.com/products/other/steelseries-desmo

    Now my question is.. Has anyone tried one of these glasses? Did it help you? How intrusive are they on your gaming?

    FLAME ON!

    I use a thing on my pc that reduces the glare and glow of my screen, yes it gives it a weird warm colour to my screen but I've been having less problems with my eyes getting tired, and after a day or so you dont really notice it, games still look the same without the massive glow killing my eyes.

    Im guessing those glasses will do the same thing, never used them and probably never will since £80 seems a bit steep.


    In terms of chairs, everyone seems to say dx racers are quite comfortable. http://www.dxracer.net/ but you'd expect it to be for their price.

    The glasses are a gimmick for a silly price. Just get F.lux for free, its brilliant and its just had a huge update with more lighting options. I've used it for years and it has helped me sleep better and less eye strain. Basically it changes the warmth of the monitor based on time of day, and slowly changes from bright as fuck during the day to warm and orange at night.

    Well that's subjective.... I think they look like those glasses they give to dyslexic kids to help them read :p

    Try the software anyway, you'll be surprised the difference it makes. This thread made me realise I hadn't installed it on my new workstation so just installed it and reduced temperature to 5300k and immediately it felt more comfortable using the pc.

    Doodle you want to look like an internet badass and wear those glass's and sit in the really nice throne to pimpslap dem kids? Then buy my friend, buy the shit out of all these things. I would. I do and I love myself for doing so. Nothing better than sitting back and putting on my rapeface mask and enjoying the finer things in life!

    Do it for you.
    Do it for gamers out side with little money and are jelly of you!
    Do it for world peace!

    Anyway's lol I have the same problem. I bought nice big monitors (32") and lowered the sharpness down to soften the blow to the eyes. I also bought a really big fancy chair cause I find spending all day at the PC when I stand up my back is sore. Also has a handy cup holder! oh yea!

    The best advice I can give you on PC/Desk Products would be buy this....

    "Enhance the properties of the human eye and its interaction with digital devices". Its the truth, I believe them. The also suggest using them in conjunction with this.

    More seriously I know someone who use and like them. On the other hand he ain't very bright and should prolly consult a proper optician instead.
