Gunnar Phenom Onyx Digital Performance Eyewear Product Details
Gunnar Phenom Onyx Digital Performance Eyewear Finished to exacting specifications and machine polished with high velocity micro particulates, the engineering behind PHENOM is only outdone by one thing... its artistic style. Micro-engineered lenslocks add both flexibility and flair. An exercise in creative contrast.
A Monomaniacal Passion for Optical Perfection. It’s a phrase that defines every action at GUNNAR. Our motivation? Human limits. Our mission? Expand those limits.
Data streams at faster and faster rates each day. From computer screens to handhelds, workstations to digital entertainment devices, the torrent of information continues to pound outward in accelerated shock waves. You know that your eyes are the gateway to the digital world. And you also know that your eyes take that relentless pounding. You’ve felt it. GUNNAR is a company founded on one simple principle: You shouldn’t have to take it anymore.
GUNNAR creates products that help you work longer and perform better. We’re passionate about providing the optimal optical solution to both the short-term and long-term negative effects of prolonged computer use. We actually seek to enhance and adapt the human eye through precision optics specifically mastered for digital data consumption. We do it to make our users’ lives better, living without the effects of digital eye fatigue. In other words, you don’t have to take it anymore.
Increase Your Visual Bandwidth: i-AMP™ Technology is the solution.
Do you remember when your parents would tell you not to sit too close to the TV? Did you ever wonder why? Well, it’s because your eye is working way too hard and very inefficiently at close distances. And now, sitting in front of a computer is far worse than the TV ever was. You know it’s true. You can feel it happening everyday. Fatigue, dry eye, fuzziness. Yet you press on because that is what you do. But, you’re not at your peak performance and you are accelerating the degradation of your vision. How do you know i-AMP’s are working? You can feel the difference. Try them on. You’ll see!
Ocular physiology perfected through advanced material science and precision optics. Unprecedented i-AMP™ technology accelerates the flow of digital data, pumping it along the most critical part of its journey...the one from screen to eye to peak performance. Utilizing the latest in polymeric formulations, organic filtering aids, and metallurgic thin film coatings, our technologists have formulated i-AMP™ to overcome the issues caused by massive visual digital data consumption. Spending more than an hour or two in front of the screen causes Digital Eye Fatigue (DEF). Unaddressed over time, the effects can progress to Computer Vision Syndrome.
Symptoms include headaches, focusing difficulties, burning eyes, tired eyes, general eyestrain, dry eyes, double vision, blurred vision, light sensitivity, and neck and shoulder pain. i-AMP™ technology addresses the root causes of these issues and puts you at peak performance. Gamers, designers, programmers, online traders, editors, analysts and anyone else that devours digital data will benefit from the additional visual bandwidth supplied by GUNNAR i-AMP™ technology.
The “Thousand Mile” stare. Complete, meditative relaxation of your eyes puts them into a distant and unfocused state. To snap out of the daydream and back to reality, inter-ocular and extra-ocular muscles flex and strain, reshaping the lens of the eye for near vision focus. Long periods of hard core use strains those muscles on users young and old, causing Digital Eye Fatigue. Instead of eye muscles flexing and straining to focus, GUNNAR i-AMP™ technology takes over. Using the most advanced optical polymers available, it shapes the light rays before they meet your eyes, simulating a focal distance that’s closer to your resting point of accommodation.
You know when your eyes have hit the wall. Burning, redness sluggishness, or the constant itching you try to rub out of your eye. These are all classic signs of dry-eye. Compounding the issue, the average blink rate drops 50%-75% during computer use. And your office isn’t helping, for sure. An artificially controlled environment with continuously processed air only accelerates the effects of dry-eye. GUNNAR studies the science of blinking since it’s the only natural way to renew the moisture over the eye. With decreased blink rates a reality, GUNNAR set out to preserve the essential moisture that comes from each blink. i-AMP™ geometry is the result. Creating a micro-climate in the critical area around the eye, resulting in an increase of relative humidity. Goodbye, dry eyes!
You’ve felt the beating from harsh lighting environments. The corporate jungle is lit with unforgiving fluorescent bulbs that emit a very narrow band of mostly blue light. Your eye has receptors to “catch” this light, but very few. “Red” cones comprise 64% of the total found in your retina, “green” 32%, and “blue” only 2%. That’s the reason why imbalanced light can contribute to Digital Eye Fatigue. So, at GUNNAR we set out to solve the problem. With organic tints, band pass filters and an optimized light transmission profile, i-AMP™ technology balances the transmitted spectrum, spreading the load over all receptors and letting more of your eye do the work. The end result: more visual bandwidth and the ability to process more comfortably over time.
Light. The source of optical stimulation and the medium of visual information. Ironically, it’s also the biggest cause of Digital Eye Fatigue. Too much light, light coming from the wrong angle, or light that competes with your screen all cause glare. Physiologically your body tries to filter out the irrelevant light by squinting or by changing the viewing angle, putting your head, neck, shoulders and arms into unnatural positions. Neurologically your brain fights between the competing sources of light to discern which is more important. GUNNAR’s i-AMP™ enabled lenses cut glare to a bare minimum. As light is filtered to the optimal part of the spectrum, your body relaxes and your brain concentrates on processing only the important information at hand.
