    Am i the only only one who thinks these are just rebadged anti-glare night driving glasses that are available for 1/5th the price.

    My arse is straining laughing at the price, they have already brought tears to my eyes and inadverantly solved my dry eye issue....hahaha

    I once bought a steel series 'Metal' mouse mat and as soon as i opened the packaging i thought....NICE ONE, YOU HAVE DONE ME UP LIKE A KIPPER...lol

    I seriously think these people are Dutch and smoke copius amounts of Hemp at the weekend.

    Actually, one of my work colleagues had been complaining about headaches due to the lighting in the office. His eyes are good, but he complained about glare and light frequency and ended up buying a pair of Gunnar Optiks from the States. He wears them every day now and placebo or not, the headaches gone, and I'm allowed to keep the lights on in the office.

    They're no quite the same 'wee wee' yellow that driving glasses are, and compared to the service station specials, the build quality is much better.

    I declined the opportunity to get a pair myself, they're not made for Photoshop or any colour critical work.

    Soo, yeah.

    haven't these been out for a while? i've been seeing them for months in stores. or were they another brand? either way, when i saw some of them were 80$US i just walked away. i'd prefer prescription lenses for that price.

    Hurrah. Yet more useless 'pro-gamer' crap that gives you MOAR FRAGZ!

    The sad thing is that I can see a lot of idiots wearing these at future LAN gaming events. The same idiots that buy those Killer network cards to get more fps...

    I feel sorry for the people who just happened to go to spec savers and pick up something similar and then make the mistake of going to a lan event

    As retarded an item as this is. I know a few people who would buy them if they had a WoW logo on there somewhere.........

    Just looked at this. It's actually a little worrying, as I was under the impression that if you wore glasses that corrected your vision and you didn't need it... you would soon find that you actually did need it.
