After reading our other reviews about Gunnar Optiks, we were approached by one of our readers/fans Eric Nagel, who is a BADASS PHP Programmer that spends A LOT of time in front of his computer monitors! Eric was so impressed with his new Gunnar “Wi-Fives” he wrote a review for us to share with our readers… Thanks Eric!
– After having Lasik surgery a few months ago, my eyes were extra sensitive to light. I read about Gunnars on #GetSome Elite Gaming, and couldn’t resist trying them for just $100. Finding the one pair I wanted was a bit of a challenge, but I chose the “Wi-Five“.
The tint is just enough to reduce the strain on my eyes, but not enough to distort colors too far. As a programmer, I can slip these on before going into a coding session, and go for hours without needing a break or eye drops.
My only complaint is that I can’t use my computer without them now! After wearing the Gunnars for a couple of hours, if I take them off, the screen appears to be very bright, the contrast is almost painful, and I have to squint to reduce the sunlight if looking out my window.
