Gunnar Optiks broke ground as the first company to create specialized eyewear for computer users and gamers.  As someone who frequently gets headaches after gaming for for over an hour and is sensitive to the brightness of a screen or monitor in low-light conditions, these types of eyewear grabbed my attention.  GUNNAR Optiks has partnered with Steelseries, one of the leading gaming peripheral and accessory companies in the world, to offer GUNNAR Optiks' lense technology to Steelseries' ever-growing fanbase.


SteelSeries DESMO Gaming Eyewear has a unique semi-rimless design to minimize peripheral distractions. The unique design provides an exceedingly broad visual field that allows the user to completely focus on the screen. The sleek frame features flexible twin-rail temples combined with adjustable nose pads to provide a lightweight, stable fit. As an added benefit for gamers, ultra-slim temples rest comfortably beneath a gaming headset. The co-branded eyewear, features GUNNAR's by GUNNAR i-AMP lens technology all designed to improve visual efficiency, endurance, and recovery during gaming sessions.

GUNNAR Optiks Advanced Gaming Eyewear is a technical eyewear solution that helps protect, enhance and optimize your vision. Whether you’re touring the competitive gaming circuit, playing MMO’s for hours or switching between work and play on your PC or MAC, the SteelSeries DESMO provides a premium visual experience while delivering both style and comfort.
