Gunnar Vayper Digital Optiks

So yeah my eyes always seem like they hurt these days. It's probably due to all of the LCD-watching, but that can't be helped unless someone makes a device that I can just plug into my face to receive visual input.

I've already made one review of a pair of Gunnar glasses, but that turned into more of a bitch session over the whole prescription mess. This time around it was different because these glasses were on sale for around $40 instead of the regular $80-$90 price. Additionally I went into it knowing what I would be getting--non-prescription digital glasses.

I got this model because the fit was listed as "medium", as opposed to my original PPKs which were "wide". I'll admit it though, I think I made a mistake. These mediums are more curved, which goes against the shape of my flat-ass face. The length across also seems to be more narrow as well. So yeah, if I ever go through this again, I'll definitely get a wide-fit model. But since I wasn't planning on returning these, I ended up bending the middle so the frames wouldn't curve in so much. Now it feels much better so that's a good thought.

As an eye-ache preventer they do sorta work. I get less eye-aches after I get off of work, but I still do get them quite often. I swear if I have a tumor or something that would just plain suck, but every year Mr. Optometrist says it's just dry eyes...yeah...we'll see about that.

So yeah the glasses do sorta work and they give a slight magnification on the computer screen which allows you to focus more, but they totally aren't worth full price. If you can find a pair on sale then yeah, it's a nice thing to have around. But one thing I did notice is that if your eyes or head already hurt, wearing these will make it worse.
