Leveling up your eyesight with gaming glasses? Ars explores
From Ars Technica:
Gunnar Optiks wants to sell you a pair of $100+ glasses specifically for gaming, or even long-term computer use. The marketing claims seem far-fetched, so we check in with an optometrist and give a sample a test-run. Our findings were somewhat surprising.
If they work half as well as they say, its still cheaper by far then what i pay now for glasses!

If your looking at these and trying to size them up compared to your current glasses ... There are three numbers to pay attention to from your glasses. First is at the bridge, mine reads as 51/19 for example and is the length of the lens and the bridge in mm. Next one of the "arms" should have its length, 140 on mine, also in mm. Ideally, if your finding that some part of your glasses is uncomfortable, you may want to size these against your current pair.
As i have seen, these appear to have "longer" or "wider" lenses but shorter bridges which may take some getting used too.
