Gunnar Optiks has partnered with Blizzard Entertainment to make some sexy-ass swag for your eyeballs.
Right now on Gunnar’s website you can view Sleeve Set #1 — which features 12 different heroes — but more designs are planned through 2015 and beyond. If you’re a fan of ANY sort of Blizzard lore and you have yet to pick yourself up a pair of Gunnars, this is my PSA to you: GO PRE-ORDER. $15 will nab you a pre-order for the sleeves, and the glasses are sold separately. I’m particularly interested in the Azmodan sleeves myself.
I’ve been using Gunnars for about a year and I’m often asked if the glasses “really work.” I suffer from eyestrain (staring at a bright computer monitor all day then jumping into video games that take place on ANOTHER bright screen will do that to you) and I actually found the brightness was beginning to make me feel ill. Almost dizzy. Behind-the-eye headaches were beginning to occur more often than I liked and I was sick of relying on basic headache medicine to dull the pain. It wasn’t until a friend randomly let me borrow his pair of Gunnars that I realized I coulda been saving myself a LOT of grief.
I kid you not, the relief was instant. It was one of those, “Ooooh, I get it now!” moments. So, if you find yourself suffering from eyestrain, headaches, etc. and you spend the majority of your day staring at a screen I hiiiighly encourage you give ’em a chance. Don’t purchase the most expensive pair or anything like that until you know they’ll work for you, but yeah, take the plunge brosephs and brosephines.
