Gunnar Optiks hands-on
Enter Gunnar Optiks, a gaming centric eyewear company that manufactures a wide range of stylish glasses that are worn to prevent eye strain, fatigue, and can even improve detail and focus in what you’re looking at. Right away, we can instantly see the resemblance of the Gunnar Optiks glasses with many of the other specialty sporty style sunglasses makers out there. However, they’re able to differentiate their variety (mostly), since their lenses have a distinct yellowish hue to them.
Lightweight and soundly strong with their construction, the Gunnar Optiks glasses are pretty comfortable to wear. Even though we’re unable to check out how effective they are when it comes to reducing eye fatigue and stress, since we’d need to log in some extravagant time using our devices, we do notice how it’s able to sharpen and enhance clarity with what we're looking at. It’s not something drastically improved, but it essentially casts enough of a contrast to deliver some sharp visuals.
Ranging in styles and prices, which can go anywhere between $100 and $200, the lens, coatings, and curvature of the Gunnar Optiks glasses aid to combat strenuous things to the eyes – such as fluorescent light, glare, and ambient air.

Im pretty sure their claims of improving game experience,etc are not backup by any scientific info.
My Claim: Those ppl who give them good review or say this stuff works just dont want to look an idiot who just spend $100+ on a pair of tint sunglasses.

Those As Seen On Tv HD glasses will do the same thing. They are $20 and use the same yellow hue to make things "pop" and not give you eye strain.
