Review: Gunnar’s Intercept gaming eyewear

If you have never owned a pair of Gunnars and find yourself in front of a computer screen or television all day, you need to read this review. All those hours of sitting in front of the PC monitor or television takes a toll on your eyes and can lead to some vision problems down the line. With Gunnar eyewear, you may not worry about that anymore with the Intercept.

Made to last, the Intercept’s proprietary lens material offers the clearest possible image and is comprised of lightweight materials for long-haul ergonomics. It is also available to people with prescription lenses.

The AMBeR lens tint is designed to improve overall contrast and comfort by filtering out harsh fluorescent light and reducing high-intensity blue light. The result helps maintain proper concentration for long periods of gaming.

Engineering grade injection polymers makes the frames strong and durable and still light enough to be comfortable to wear for hours without any problems.

Retailing for $69.99, these are one of the cheaper line of the Gunnars eyewear, but do just as great of a job than the most expensive pairs – just not as stylish.

Final Reaction

Since I find myself in front of the computer all day to play games, stream, or head down to play with my friends over at the 1337Lounge.com, I am always wearing the Intercept and it makes all the difference.

The Intercept can be your nerdy fashion statement, while giving you all the benefits of improved visual quality while gaming. Too much time in front of the screen can cause some eye problems thanks to all the artificial light, but a pair of Gunnar eyewear can help prevent some of these problems. It does take a while to get used to the Amber tint, but after using any of the Gunnar eyewear line, you can easily feel your eyes more relaxed and a huge difference in contrast, image size and color.

Pro players are seen wearing these on stream since they spend hours in front of a PC and while I enjoy the Nerd Reactor green Intercept, which retails for $69.99, you can always buy a bit more lightweight stylish pair of gaming eyewear with the Desmo for $30.00 more.
