You can order blue-coat or similar computer lens if you have prescription from your eyewear store. I buy them specifically for computer use because I am looking at multiple screens at work. It does make the white a little yellow, but it's a lot more comfortable after hours.

On Windows 10, I just activate the blue filter.

Is this only for console gaming?

That's different, night shift or blue filter works if you work in a pitch black room. We have exterior lighting like florescent in our enviroment that still goes into your eye. Having the proper hardware is a complete solution.

Thanks OP! I've been on the fence about Gunnars (or similar glasses) for a while now, but with that price it's too hard to pass up - even with the 1-3 months shipping I'm usually apt to pass on. Would be interesting to hear from someone who actually get these at some point to see if they hold up.
Just a scrub with negative K/D.

I am from optical field ....this is just a BS to connect it to gaming or stuff .u can buy 2$ pairs from ebay and they are shipped at same time these ones ..

All the do is cut glare of the screen or headlights of cars coming towards u .if u wear glasses than u already have Antiglare built in those lenses so u don't need that .

You could wear contacts with them, which is what I'm going to do. If you want prescription Gunnar's they are going to cost a lot more. At less than 20 bucks, I bought these to see how well they work and if I really like them, then I will buy a prescription pair later on since contacts give me a bit of eye strain too.

At least two reviews said they have a slight zoom factor. Does anyone know if other models don't?

I had these before, a very very tiny zoom. The yellow takes a while to get used to. Despite their claims, my kd ratio did not improve in COD games.

I seriously hope you are trolling and do Not own an optics store, nor give optics advice professionally.

I notice on the Gunnar Optics website it mentions that these glasses are 'Asian Fit Compatible' and 'Youth Fit'. Are they smaller than standard size glasses?

Clearly has prescription lenses that block blue light for people on screen. I use a pair.
