When it comes to video gaming and physical ailments, gamer's thumb and poor posture often get the most attention, but eyestrain should be up there. Enter: GUNNAR Optiks' Advanced Computer Eyewear and Gaming Eyewear. They've got oddly yellow-tinted lenses and nerdy-thick frames but Amazon customer reviewers swear by them. People that've had long-suffering problems with eyestrain and eyestrain's subsequent headaches are having a complete turnaround in their experiences, whether gaming or just sitting in front of a computer screen for entire work days at a time. These things work. They're practically saving lives.

The Intercept model's baseline onyx color has been well-received and is passable in hipster-lens culture. But, due to the Intercept's success, GUNNAR is now introducing several highly embarrassing color variations to the mix, like cobalt, fire, Kryptonite (pictured below), ink, and ghost. Wear these in public, and potential boyfriends and girlfriends will find you easy to resist.



Computer Eyewear Pioneer GUNNAR Optiks Reveals
the Brilliant Shades of the New INTERCEPT Color Collection

Carlsbad, CA – January 6, 2014 – GUNNAR Optiks, pioneer of precision-engineered computer and gaming eyewear, is ringing in the New Year by unveiling the INTERCEPT Color Collection. This new assortment of richly energetic hues brings a personalized, multi-chromatic touch to the retro-infused, high-tech optical perfection of GUNNAR’s successful INTERCEPT product line.

“GUNNAR makes glasses for anyone who demands the absolute most from their digital experience,” remarked GUNNAR Optiks’ CEO, Joe Croft. “But a high performance product designed for such a wide range of digital consumers can't be confined to a limited color palette. With the introduction of the INTERCEPT Color Collection, we've given everyone, from hardcore gamers to creative designers to technophiles of all types, a chance to show off their individuality and style - while protecting and enhancing their vision.”

The new Color Collection adds five vibrant hues to the INTERCEPT suite – Cobalt, Fire, Kryptonite, Ghost and Ink – which join the classic, original Onyx model. As always, these new, colorful styles deliver the same high-quality lens technology and frame construction while providing the competitive edge that GUNNAR users have come to expect. The INTERCEPT’s top-grade polymer frames are fine-tuned to maximize stability and durability, while even weight distribution and a premium soft-touch, non-slip external coating ensure they’re equally as comfortable as they are durable. In addition, their unique, proprietary lens design filters out harsh artificial light and reflective glare for a focused, panoramic view that brings vivid detail to high-resolution digital displays and protects the wearer’s vision from drying out.

The latest colors from the INTERCEPT collection will be available for purchase immediately through GUNNARS.com and BestBuy.com. For more information, visit GUNNARS.com/intercept-colors.
