was founded in the year 2007 by Gunnar Optiks LLC of Carlsbad, USA. The eyewear was developed primarily due to the inconvenience experienced by one of its founder due to heavy eye strain and fatigue and other eye irritation during prolonged and heavy visual usage of computers and other digital equipment. Since then it has become an obsession to develop an eyewear that primarily focus on relieving and eliminating stress, strain, fatigue as well as other eye irritants brought about by using an eyewear. Through the years, Gunnar developed technologies and add on other enhancements on its eyewear products.
Gunnar Optiks carried the i-AMP Lens Technology, a lens technology developed by the company on their patented shape designed lenses which were custom developed with lens tint and coatings that are exclusively made for all Gunnar Optiks eyewear. The technology provides effective reduction and relieving of eye strain, fatigue, watering, irritation and other known symptoms of the computer vision syndrome (CVS). The Gunnar Optiks eyewear also features the Fractyl lens geometry which specifically tune and enhance focus functionality through the aid of its highly wrapped lens design. The Fractyl lens geometry manages air flow and air current circulation near and around the eyes. The Diamix lens material are optical crystal clear lenses that reflects non-distorted, haze-free, clear and pure images with high degree of color burst and contraction control. The Ionik lens tints and shades improve overall contrast and comfort by filtering out harsh, sharp and irritating artificial bright lights. The i-Fi lens coating technology with anti-reflective layers of coat was induced on the Gunnar lenses to reduce and minimize heavy glare and an exterior hard coat that repel and limit environmental and accidental damage due to scratching, etching, smudges and other unwanted marks.
Gunnar Optiks focus on technologies that benefit and protect primarily the eyes of its eyewear users through comfort and manageability using digital lens engineering that are ergonomically designed and optimized for users vision comfort, clarity, functionality and ultimate viewing experience. As such Gunnar Optiks technology has been featured and recognized by various technical media review boards such as PC World, Gizmondo, Huffington Post and Lifehacker.
