Today, SteelSeries and GUNNAR Optiks introduced a new style of eyewear designed for competitive gamers, the SteelSeries Desmo. Featuring GUNNAR's i-AMP® lens technology, the new co-branded eyewear improves visual efficiency, endurance, and recovery during gaming sessions. To minimize peripheral distractions, the unique design is semi-rimless and 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, the ultra-slim temples rest comfortably beneath a gaming headset. The new style will be available in two color options - the Desmo Onyx and Desmo Snow (limited edition).

Together with the lightweight, durable design of the frames and comfort of the temples, the SteelSeries Desmo lenses are optimized to enhance a user's visual performance. GUNNAR eyewear enhances optical performance to give users an immediate, noticeable visual advantage using i-AMP lens technology. This optical lens innovation includes the following components:

*Tint: Specially formulated tint conditions and shifts the color spectrum to provide superior contrast, detail and resolution.

*Wrap/Shape: Features a highly wrapped, curved lens shape limiting air flow and maintaining moisture near the eyes, while providing a slight focusing power to help ease eye fatigue and enhancing detail for sharper, clearer vision.

*Material: A proprietary lens material that is optically pure, insuring the clearest image by eliminating distortion, impurities and haze.

*Coatings: An anti-reflective coating that reduces glare and other distractions caused by reflective light.
20/20 or Rx: Out of the box ready for 20/20 vision or used with corrective contact lenses, and also prescription compatible in partnership with Carl Zeiss Vision with optional coverage by VSP Insurance.

The SteelSeries Desmo Onyx is $99.99/ €99.99 MSRP and will be available online at both the SteelSeries and GUNNAR Web Shops.

So ugly styling and the same price point as their glasses have always been... ok.

Anyway, if you work in an office with fluorescent lighting and work on an LCD screen 8 hours a day than these glasses can help reduce eye strain. Otherwise these are a total waste of money.

They change the way the picture looks and add a tint. I don't know about you but I prefer not to have the colors on my expensive S-IPS panel display tinted.

I actually want to try a pair of Gunnars out. My eyes get strained after staring at a computer screen for an extended amount of time, so I think these will actually work for me (the computer glasses, not the gaming glasses).

FYI, the Vice President of Gunnar Optiks, Mark McNabb, built Oakley virtually from the ground up (took them from $20 million in annual revenue to over $150 million when he left). At the very least, the company is legit.

You may want to take a look at flu.x It dims your monitor automatically throughout the day so your eyes can adjust and not be strained.

It's wonderful and free.

This is just about as good as the "mousing gloves" that Thermaltake makes. And by good, I mean crap. Waste of money. What's next, secret decoder rings? Diapers for gamers? Gamer shoes? Gamer hats (oh crap, TF2)?
