A Review: Gamma Ray Essentials Computer Glasses

Updated on July 27, 2015

So what exactly are computer glasses? Simply put they're glasses you wear during computer time, more specifically if you're going to be spending a great deal of time in front of any digital screen. When we look at computer screens, TV's, or our phones for any length of time you'll experience eye strain, blurred vision, red eyes, and other symptoms of Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS).

I started experiencing these symptoms a few years ago as I increased my computer time. After doing some research I decided on the Gamma Ray Essentials Glasses.

Pros

  1. Affordable: Since it wasn't something I had tried before it was a good price at $13.95 in case they didn't work out.
  2. Tinted: When wearing them you will see a slight yellow tint at first but after a while you won't even notice it. It reduces the glare of my computer screen greatly.
  3. Reduces Eye Fatigue: Spending hours behind a computer screen would often make me feel tired. My eyes would feel like they had been open for 24 hours straight. It completely takes care of eye fatigue and I can wear them for hours without any problems.
  4. Lightweight: The frames are made of plastic and fit around your head comfortably. The ear pieces do not dig into the sides of your head which I have experienced with other glasses.
  5. Compatible with Prescription Glasses: They're big enough if you want to wear them over your prescription glasses.

Cons

  1. One Size Fits All: If you're planning on wearing them over your prescription glasses then the size won't bother you. But if you're like me and wear them alone then they're a little big in general. I do have to push and reposition them a few times in an hour.
  2. Smudges Easily: It really doesn't take much for these glasses to smudge. Most of the time I can get away with cleaning them with the eye pouch it comes it. But I do have to wash them with water more than I would my regular glasses.

Overall I really love these glasses. I no longer experience headaches, eye strain, fatigue, or dryness. As an added bonus it has even reduced my under eye circles! Be sure to visit your eye doctor to rule out any eye problems and to make sure your prescription is up-to-date. Both of those can contribute to eye strain and headaches as well.
