My fiance is in IT as well, and he bought the GUNNAR glasses about a year ago.  He doesn’t wear them every day, but he’s noticed less eye strain when he does wear them.  It’s a little hard to get used to if you’ve never worn glasses or had any vision correction, but after about 2 weeks, he was totally fine.

I saw an add for the Gunnar glasses and wondered the same thing. I’d be interested in hearing anyones experiences. I want to buy a pair but not sure I can justify the money!

The yellow tint does affect color, I know when I’m wearing my tinted shooting glasses I need to take them off and let my eyes get used to regluar color every once in a while.  He read a bunch of reviews before purchasing them, I think the concensus was that if you’re bothered by eye strain, it’s worth the money.  If you’re just vaguely concerned about it and it doesn’t actually bother you on a regular basis, then it’s not worth it.

Also, when you’re looking at only one target distance (your computer) for a long time, it can cause the focusing muscles in your eyes to become less flexible.  This makes it look blurry when you do happen to get up from your computer.  If you’ve noticed this problem, simply looking away from your computer screen (look out the window, down the hall, etc) will help keep the muscles in your eyes from getting a spasm.  A minute or two of looking away for every half hour on the computer can help.
