    Just curious if anyone wears glasses made for Computer / Gaming ?

    I'm looking for something that eases the strain on my eyes as I'm in front of a computer at a minimum of 8 Hours a day.
    Add on that PS3 gaming 5-8 hours of gaming a week.

    I found Gunnar Optiks in my search but would really be interested if anyone has tried these or has other suggestions.

    I saw an add up top on here for "performance gaming glasses" and it made be laugh!

    It appears they just use yellow lenses though so maybe find a pair of Oakley's with yellow or persimmon.

    haha sometimes i wear my gold iridium lenses in front of my computer, helps with screen glare, i feel. basically anything that cuts glare+light transmission, but ups the contrast slightly (so everyhitng on the screen is still clear) would suit..

    I would think that most eye strain is involved if you are gaming or looking at a screen for a long time in a dark room.

    My office environment is very bright.
    Florescent lighting plus full length windows.
    Management wont permit us to lower the blinds :(

    I have an M Frame with persimmon , Will see if those help at home but not wearing an M Frame in a office environment.
