Review: Eagle Eyes Glasses
About 10 years ago I started to get really bad headaches. I thought I was suffering from migraines. Went to my medical doctor who sent me to an eye doctor. The doctor diagnosed me with astigmatism and prescribed me glasses with very small amount of magnification. Which surprised me as I didn’t find anything blurry or had a hard time seeing things up close or at a distance.
I started to think I had a more serious eye problem, or something else all together because the headaches did not go away.
My doctor originally thought maybe, I needed a different prescription so she ran the test again, and it was all the same. She then asked me something she didn’t ask me on the first visit. What I do for work and If I am in front of a computer screen a lot? When I told her yes I am in front of a computer screen for the better part of a day, she said I should get a coating for my lenses to protect my eyes from the glare on the screen.
What do you know after a 400 dollar upgrade to my face-ware my headaches were gone.
Shortly after I realized I didn’t need the eye glasses for driving, walking around doing my day to day errands. Just really needed them for when I was on a computer. My vision hadn’t worsened either, in fact my vision slightly improved.
So instead of buying $500 glasses I tried Guner Optics, and hated them. The yellow hue was annoying for me and bothered me. So just purchased cheap glasses from Cohens and just added the anti glare coat. Which came out to about 200 dollars each pair.
So I have been buying new glasses just to use while on a computer every 2 years for the past 8 years.
Recently I learned about Eagle Eyes and decided to try out their Optiflex DT. A cool looking pair of glasses for computer use. It kills the blue light and actually makes everything look less blue, without adding annoying yellow hue. There is a slight yellow hue but it doesn’t change the color of things, like the pair of gunnar optics glasses I had used in the past.
I actually felt my eyes more relaxed when working on a computer using the glasses than with the ones I bought from JCPenny with the Anti Glare coating.
I find my self finishing my work faster because I no longer feel the need to take a break as frequently to rest my eyes. My only complaint is, there seems to be sometimes a spot of glare at the bottom of the lenses but I got use to it after about a day. It’s actually like a mini reflection of the screen. It only seems to popup when I am sitting higher than the screen.
Overall the Optiflex DT is a godsend for me. It will save me money as they only cost $79.95 and after dropping them a few times I can tell you they aren’t easily prone to scratches and breaks like the ones I’ve been getting from JCPenny.
