Gunnar Optiks Gets Patent for Computer Eyewear

Gunnar Optiks has been awarded broad patent coverage (US Patent No. 8,342,681) on the company’s lens technology and design, according to a company spokesperson. Its 20/20 and prescription computer eyewear, optimized for use while viewing digital screens, combines a proprietary lens material in an advanced geometry, finished with custom tuned lens tints and coatings. The patent reportedly applies to the following:
  • Computer eyewear designed to filter spectral peaks commonly found in fluorescent lighting and computer backlights.
  • Computer eyewear with a wrap-around design designed to protect the eye from air currents and trap in evaporated moisture.
  • Computer eyewear with decentered optics to provide distortion-free viewing.
  • Additional patent claims, regarding the filtration of HEV (High Energy Visible) light, have been allowed and set to issue in the coming months.

Its Optiks i-AMP lens technology is said to give computer users better performance and a visual advantage in the short term while reducing wear and tear on eyes in the long term. Working with the eye, optic nerve and brain to enhance the viewing experience, this patented technology allows digital users to see more clearly, absorb and process more than with the naked eye.
