Do I need a prescription for GUNNARS if I have 20/20 vision?
GUNNAR off-the-shelf eyewear is intended for people with 20/20 or corrected vision, and do not require a prescription. We do recommend regular visits to your eye care professional to ensure your vision is healthy. If you have a prescription for eye glasses, GUNNAR can help. For more information, please visit GUNNAR Rx
What do I need to order my prescription glasses online?
You need a copy of your prescription to order Rx glasses online. If you do not have a copy of your prescription available, please visit your eye care professional who will be able to provide that for you including your pupillary distance (PD). When ordering from GUNNAR, please include your PD along with your prescription details as these are required to make an online Rx purchase.
Are GUNNAR Rx prescription glasses covered by my Company Medical Benefit?
GUNNAR Rx glasses are covered by most of the Company Medical Benefits. For more information, kindly check with your HR department.
Where can I purchase GUNNAR Computer Eyewear?
What is different between GUNNAR lens technology and other glasses?
GUNNAR is the only patented computer eyewear recommended by doctors to protect and enhance your vision while using a digital device. Our advanced optical technology addresses all issues associated with digital eyestrain including dry, irritated eyes, blurry vision, headaches, glare, as well as the negative effects of artificial blue light including eyestrain and fatigue. The result: improved clarity, focus and performance. Learn more about how GUNNARS work.
What is the advantage of Amber lenses?
Our custom tints tune artificial blue light to enhance the physiology of the naked eye, increasing contrast perception and shifting the color spectrum for visual efficiency. Light from energy efficient computers and overhead fluorescent lighting consists of narrow bands of high energy light instead of the equally balanced, full spectrum light the human eye prefers. Changing the color of your screen or brightness does not affect the quality of the digital light. GUNNAR lens tints filter and balance the transmitted spectrum, reducing high energy visible [HEV] light and warming the spectrum. By reducing harsh blue light, sensitive parts of the eye are engaged, increasing contrast. Filtering blue light from a backlit screen reduces visual recovery time and protects the eyes.
- Increased brightness perception
- Increased ability to see objects against background
- Increased overall clarity of vision
- Decreased glare
Do GUNNAR Computer Glasses have extra focusing power?
GUNNAR lens material has specifically tuned focusing power providing you with sharper, clearer vision. This patented lens technology aids natural focusing and reduces stress and strain on your eyes. Less eye strain reduces digital fatigue and issues associated with prolonged computer use. The GUNNAR non-Rx frames have a standard +0.2 diopter that allows the eyes not to strain and stress when looking at close computer distances for extended periods of time.
What’s the difference between computer eyewear and gaming eyewear?
You can expect an immediate reduction in digital eye strain (dry, tired eyes, blurred vision, and eye fatigue), decreased glare and screen reflections, increased contrast and detail, and improved focus, productivity, and performance no matter what you’re doing.
Are GUNNARS polarized?
GUNNARS are optimized for 20/20 or corrected vision. If you experience discomfort, we recommend visiting your eye care professional to see if you would benefit from a custom prescription. If you require prescription lenses, we can give your eye care professional instructions, or process your order directly through our certified optical lab.

Will wearing GUNNAR glasses make me dependent on them or weaken my vision?
No they won’t on both accounts. GUNNAR glasses are simply an aid to remove unneeded stress, improve vision, and they will not cause your eyesight to grow worse. The slight magnification helps eyes muscles and corrects blurry vision. The magnification simulates looking further away.
I am a designer; will the amber tint alter color?
Our proprietary Amber lens tint is tuned specifically to mimic natural light by filtering out the harsh blue light spectrum. If you work in true color and require an unaltered spectral shift, then we recommend our Clear Lens option.
Do the clear glasses have a magenta hue?
We use an Anti-Reflective (AR) coating to increase light transmission through the lens allowing for brighter, crisper image detail. We tune our AR coating and select a center for peak reflectance over certain parts of the spectrum. Our Amber tint has peak reflectance at 450nm which corresponds with the increased spike of energy in the blue part of the spectrum from digital screens, reducing strain on the eyes.
For our Clear Lens, we tune the AR coating to reflect closer to 550nm (green), hence you may perceive a slight green on the lens (less than 1% reflectance). The 550nm peak reflectance counters the results of the natural filtering from our lens material. The result is an equalized balance of light allowing for the truest color necessary for design applications.
What kind of cleaner can I use if I don’t have the GUNNAR Cleaning Kit?
Some cleaners contain alcohol which can damage the anti glare coatings. We recommend GUNNAR lens cleaner.
What is GUNNARS Rx prescription glasses return policy?
All sales are final on custom prescription orders. However, we do guarantee all of our eyewear will be void of defects in materials and workmanship for a perdiod of one (1) year from the date of purchase. Eligibility is dependent upon having purchased an item from an authorized GUNNAR retailer, or from GUNNARs.com.my
