Amazon sells a whole range of ...

GAMMA RAY FLEXLITE Computer Reading Glasses

A. Are they a con?
B. Any one sell them in NZ?

The reviews on Amazon are glowing

So release the hounds of comments!

I tried some to tame the brightness of the screen without resorting to dimming the backlighting. Was not pleasant to use. Easiest solution was to brighten the rest of the room up to match the computer screens.

My Optometrist put  together reading glasses I use only on the computer, my everyday glasses just never seemed to work. These work great, they have a light tint on them and a non reflective lens. They are very good and have eliminated eye strain etc whilst using the computer.

I'm curious as to the benefit of tinted lenses in 'computer glasses'.

Surely it would equally good (or better) to adjust the gamma on your display to make everything slightly yellow compared to real life?

I wear contacts but for computer work and reading I use a +0.75 pair of glasses that also correct my mild astigmatism. They have an anti reflective coating but aren't tinted. They make things a lot easier, if I just had to wear contacts I would have to choose reading or distant vision, or likely a compromise that didn't work well for either.

I've used tinted gunnars in the past and now have the crystalline ones.. don't see a difference between the two tbh.

I'd say the glasses are pretty good and do help for long periods of time, but probably not worth it unless you don't mind paying a decent price for them. Mine were $130 NZD but they were these ones.
