Elite Recording Artists And Industry Execs Flock To Wearable Eye Technology

LOS ANGELES (RushPRnews) 02/11/09-– The 2009 Grammy Awards® gifting lounge buzzed for three straight days about the hottest A-List, “must-have” product, GUNNAR Optik’s Digital Performance Eyewear. Created to combat the negative effects on eyesight caused by excessive viewing of digital images, GUNNAR’S innovative melding of technology and fashion not only caught the eye, but covered the eyes, of many of the biggest names in the music industry.

From Kid Rock requesting extra pairs for his recording studio, to the Jonas Brothers telling the GUNNAR staff they’ve been wearing them for the past three months to Rapper Ne-Yo donning the GUNNAR hat in support of the product during his E! Entertainment interview, the fashionable, practical and scientifically researched item can now count these A-Lister’s and countless other industry “players” amongst the rapidly growing throng of satisfied, and thankful, GUNNAR owners.

According to the American Optometric Association, more than 125 million Americans suffer from what is now commonly referred to as Digital Eye Fatigue or Computer Vision Syndrome. These conditions are caused by excessive viewing of digital images either via the computer, television or mobile devices resulting in headaches, dry eyes and even farsightedness. GUNNAR’s patent-pending, i-AMP™ lens technology has been laboratory tested and proven to dramatically decrease eye-strain while increasing contrast perception, providing more comfort and productivity to the wearer. But at the Grammy’s it was all about the style.

“There aren’t many places where image is more important than the Grammy’s,” said GUNNAR co-founder Jennifer Michelsen from the company’s San Diego headquarters. “So to see the surprise on the faces of stars such as Jennifer Hudson, Taylor Swift and Lil’ Wayne when we told them about the benefits of wearing GUNNAR’S made for a great night.”

Following five years of rigorous research, GUNNAR OPTIKS® was officially launched in October, 2008 and has enjoyed a meteoric rise with its four signature collections available in hundreds of retail and specialty stores throughout the nation. GUNNARS are also available with prescription lenses with some insurance companies now covering the breakthrough product. And with the Vision Council of America stating that nearly 90 percent of those who use a computer at least three hours a day suffer vision problems associated with computer related eye strain, GUNNAR’s are indeed a “must-have” for the A-Lister in all of us.
