Every gamer has felt it at some point in their playing career. After a double digit hour session of console or PC gaming: dry eyes, they ache, you can’t focus properly, they might even be watering. It sucks but its a price to pay for just one more game.
Apparently though, that’s not completely necessary. Gunnar Optiks have been making gaming grade computer glasses for a long time now and they’ve recently teamed up with Steelseries to produce some new branded pairs of the specs. Utilising a yellow tint, minor magnification and other lens features to make it easier on your eyes, the idea is to allow you to game and work for longer with less strain on those important eye balls.
Let’s see if they live up to the hype.

CHOOSE YOUR COLOR
Available in Onyx/Snow (exclusively sold on SteelSeries.com) or Onyx/Orange.
Custom order your prescription lenses through the GUNNAR Optiks Rx Program.
Steelseries use some generic “Gaming Eyewear” packaging for the Desmo glasses, with a big plastic viewer that lets you see them before buying.
The back is similarly quite generic, but lists off some features of both the Desmo and the alternative Scope specs.
Flipping the lid over gives you alternative language versions of the glasses’ features and a look at the arms.
Along with the glasses you get a small, fold out leaflet explaining how they work – very vaguely and in laymans terms – and a white, cloth pouch to keep them safe from scratches.
