(Is this the right forum)?

This is a question about Gunnar optics (

I've seen some reviews, but I'm not quite convinced if they are for me. Some of the people reviewing are gamers, and I'm just a programmer. I do however spend a lot of time in front of my computer, and experience the eyestrain that they describe.

Does anyone have gunnars that program or perform similar tasks, that can verify that the gunnars work?

If so, what model should I get? Is it just a matter of taste and design or are there quality differences in what's best for my eyes?

Do "computer glasses" qualify as a computer peripheral equipment? :-) – haimg Jun 12 '12 at 18:38

This is a shopping recommendation, which unfortunately falls outside of the scope of this forum. – user3463 Jun 12 '12 at 19:10
Only that we're not even a forum :) Seriously though, Jakob, this is something you may want to discuss on Super User Chat, since we specifically disallow shopping questions, as @Randolph said. – slhck Jun 12 '12 at 19:54
