I stare at screens all day long. The fatigue is real - and as a designer - maintaining healthy eyes is very important to me (it should be to everyone). I recently got my pair of Felix Grays and so far I really like them. There are similar products out there focused on gamers (I'm not a gamer) - but I really liked the style of these. I've never had to wear glasses before in my life, but if I'm going to start wearing them now, I want them to be comfortable and not make me look dorkier than I already do.

@_tyoung Trevor, you just explained the origin of Felix Gray perfectly! We were analysts who felt our eyes were getting too burned out for being in our mid-20's and wanted a quality solution that was a little less game-y and a little more office-appropriate! Of course, we're out here for all our gamer friends as well :)

I've had these ~5 months and love them. As someone who takes an interest in fashion and style, these look great and help my eye fatigue.

I've used these for about two months now and refuse to work without them. A truly noticeable difference in my productivity and effectiveness, strong endorsement from me

Is this like a physical version of using F.lux? https://justgetflux.com/
Chris Benedict@felixgrays · Co-Founder and CMO @ Felix Gray
@evannite Hey Evan, kind of! f.lux is a great product for warming the temperature of your screen, but because it is a software solution, it does not fundamentally alter the diodes of LED screens, so there is high energy light still emitted. Also, it does nothing for glare, which is a major component of eyestrain. When testing these glasses with professionals at companies like Spotify, LinkedIn, Barclays and Google, we met a ton of folks who also used software solutions, but still use Felix Grays because of the reasons mentioned above for the ultimate comfort. Also, f.lux is great for developers that work in a terminal all day, but if you're a designer or constantly work with the web, changing the entire color of your screen is not ideal. Here's a little piece Forbes did on software solutions, Nightshift in this case: http://www.forbes.com/sites/gord...

@evannite Woohoo! Glad they're helping, Sam! Back when we were analysts before starting FG, we were also skeptical of solutions... Until we started researching, testing different products and lens types, etc. Once we realized this is a real thing (the gaming industry adopted this a while ago) we knew we had to create a modern, fashionable design for all the folks out there staring at their computer all day, just like us! Thanks so much for the support :)
