If you spend the majority of your workday behind the white light of a computer screen, you may want to get yourself a pair of Gunnar Optiks. These glasses are made with yellow-tinted lenses specifically designed to reduce eyestrain for office workers by increasing the contrasts on digital screens and adding a slight magnification. The frames are shaped to increase airflow around the eyes. Because words and numbers are crisper, and glares are less noticeable, there's no more squinting and eye rubbing.
