"For those with less-than-perfect sight, or those who simply experience all of the issues mentioned earlier in the article, the DESMO is worth a look - or even the Scope as they feature the same lenses but a different style."
"SteelSeries' DESMO are not life-changing glasses, but they can help save you a lot of headaches (literally)."
"The SteelSeries DESMO performs admirably, easing the strain on the wearers precious eyes, and allowing them to work longer and harder without the bane of computer related eye strain."
"No one laughs at you for buying insurance for a house or car, why should it be any different with your eyes?"
"The question becomes, am I convinced? I would say that I am, and that I was hooked when I first felt my eyes adjusting..."
"If you spend an extended period of time playing games, especially in the dark, I really do think that these work wonders."
For the past two years we’ve been working with the team from GUNNAR Optiks who know a thing or two about how staring at a digital screen for hours can not only affect your eyes, but also your game. By combining our flare for style, comfort and function – we’re proud to introduce a new design to SteelSeries’ Eyewear family. Meet the Desmo.
GUNNAR Optiks Advanced Gaming Eyewear is a technical eyewear solution that helps protect, enhance and optimize your vision. The SteelSeries DESMO joins the line-up of digital eyewear for gamers. Whether you’re touring the competitive gaming circuit, play MMO’s for hours or switching between work and play on your PC or MAC, SteelSeries branded eyewear helps minimize eye fatigue and visual stress, while improving contrast, comfort, and focus.
The yellow or AMBeR lens tint, filters out harsh fluorescent light and reduces high-intensity blue light. Why should gamers care? The result is a warmer, more natural light spectrum that minimizes the stress on your eyes, which can help sustain focus and alertness during marathon gaming sessions. Relaxed eyes mean less fatigue. Less fatigue means longer play time.
The Desmo are available in two color options: Onyx and Orange or White. What color suits you? While both options are equally appealing, the White Desmo is exclusive and only sold online in the SteelSeries Web Shop.
Ergonomically designed , the lens and frame solution are constructed with the most advanced lightweight, yet durable materials available. Also features headset compatible temples for enhanced comfort with headsets. Oh and just a reminder, all SteelSeries headsets provide enough cushion in the earcups so that the Desmo glasses won’t dig into your temples.
The AMBeR lens tint is designed to improve overall contrast and comfort by filtering out harsh fluorescent light and reducing high-intensity blue light. The result is a warmer, more natural light spectrum that minimizes the stress on your eyes, which can help sustain focus during gameplay.
The lens coatings are designed to reduce glare and protect the lens. It includes an anti-reflective coating to reduce glare and reflections, and a hard coat that reduces environmental damage and minimizes scratching of the lens material.
The proprietary lens material offers the clearest image possible and is comprised of lightweight materials for long-haul ergonomics.
The highly wrapped, curved lens shape limits air currents near the eyes, creating a higher humidity environment. This increased moisture helps reduce dry eyes and prevent irritation. The lens geometry offers a slight focusing power to help ease eyestrain caused by pixilated images. The focusing power helps improve the efficiency of the eye by enhancing detail for sharper, clearer vision.
IMPROVES VISUAL EFFICIENCY
GUNNAR’s lens tint, coating, focusing power, and curvature create an environment for sharper, clearer vision. GUNNAR gaming eyewear helps your eyes work more efficiently, protecting against fatigue and enhancing overall contrast, focus and detail.
IMPROVES VISUAL ENDURANCE
Eyestrain, visual stress and dry eyes can be caused by extended periods of near to intermediate distance computer viewing. GUNNAR gaming eyewear helps relax the ocular muscles so you can spend more time gaming without getting eye fatigue and even headaches. If your eyes feel more relaxed, you can stay focused, play longer, and maybe even nab some extra frags.
IMPROVES VISUAL RECOVERY
GUNNAR eyewear helps keep your eyes fresh and relaxed. The lens tint, coatings, and curvature help reduce issues like eye strain, dry eyes, and visual stress which can help visual recovery after marathon gaming sessions.
MINIMIZES EYE STRAIN
GUNNAR eyewear protects against environmental barriers that can cause vision problems when viewing digital screens. The lens tint, coatings, and curvature combat issues like harsh fluorescent light, blue light, glare, and ambient air currents that can cause your eyes to dry out and strain. Wearing GUNNAR gaming eyewear helps minimize those issues creating a better environment for your eyes.
GUNNAR guarantees the quality and performance of its eyewear. Wear your GUNNARS every time you’re in front of your computer/screen for the next 30 days. If you don’t notice a difference in contrast, comfort and focus, send them back for a full refund.
The GUNNAR Guarantee is only applicable for US customers who purchase GUNNARS at an authorized GUNNAR retailer or e-tailer. The Guarantee only applied to GUNNAR’s over-the-counter product offering for customers with 20/20 vision or vision corrected 20/20.
The sleek, semi-rimless design is more than just lightweight and durable, it offers gamers a broader visual field by taking out the classic metal or plastic frame border found on most glasses. Combine semi-rimless with the extended size and curve of the lenses, users see more with limited peripheral obstructions.
The Desmo’s semi-rimless design allows gamers to completely focus on the screen, without any distractions to your peripheral sight. Keep focus on what matters.
The glasses feature twin-rail temples that when combined with adjustable nosepads, provide a stable fit while the ultra-slim stems rest comfortably along your temples, beneath your headset.
