NoScope Gaming Glasses – Review (@NoScopeGlasses)

I’m sure that eye fatigue is something that all gamers and PC users have experienced at one point or another.  Whether it results in that annoying grainy feeling in your eyes, headaches, or even nausea, it’s never nice, that’s for sure.  Being a sufferer of all of the above, eyt having to spend extended periods of time on the PC and gaming, I was after a solution without breaking the bank. Today, I have a review of the newest gaming and PC glasses on the market from NoScope – a pair from their “Demon Series“.  Check out the unboxing video for a detailed view.

A good starting point would be price and delivery.  You can pick up a pair of these glasses for around £19 GBP – that’s including delivery.  Delivery time from the US to the UK was only a week, so that’s definitely a plus in my book.

The glasses arrived very well packaged and protected.  The come in a rather large cardboard box, and when opened, the glasses themselves are in a transparent zip closed plastic bag.  Also bundled in with the glasses is a nice material pouch for the glasses which sports the NoScope logo, as well as a lint free cloth for keeping the glasses lenses clean and dust free.

The glasses are made from lightweight plastic and it is said that “One size fits all”.  We’ll get to that soon though.  The glasses also have yellow tinted lenses that are supposed to help reduce symptoms of eye strain.  Between the lenses is a nicely placed NoScope logo – nicely placed because it is not too in your face, but it is noticeable enough so you know which company the glasses come from.

The glasses themselves are very lightweight and from what I can tell, the “One size fits all” claim is a valid one.  While I don’t have the biggest of heads, the size difference between mine and my partners is definitely noticeable – to put it nicely.  We were both able to wear the glasses for an extended period of time without experiencing any loose fitting or discomfort.  I have actually been able to sit at the PC for longer than half hour here and there without getting hit with a horrible feeling of dizziness and nausea, and that’s always a plus in my book!

I know that compared to other PC/Gaming glasses companies, the NoScope glasses are only available in one style, and not currently available as prescription glasses, but for the price, you can’t really complain.  They do what you expect them to do at a price that everyone can afford.  Who knows, there could be more styles on the way – for the record, that would be awesome!

For the price you pay and the way that they combat eye strain and fatigue, I’ll be wearing these for a long time to come and will happily suggest them to people that ask.

iVisionwear Computer Glasses – Review (@VCeyewear)

I have been interested in getting a pair of computer glasses for a little while now, especially considering the amount of time I spend on my PC and laptop but could never justify the pricetag of them. When the kind people over at VC Eyewear agreed to send me a pair from their iVisionwear range to use and review, I was more than happy to take them up on their offer.

On their website you will find four different categories for their glasses – Computer Eyed, iVisionwear, Gamers Edge, and Go Green! Readers.

I tend to get headaches pretty bad when I have been in front of the monitor for long periods of time, so my online time has been somewhat limited of late. I have had the chance to use these glasses for a couple of weeks.

When I first received the glasses they came in a black box with a clear plastic front.

Through the clear plastic front packaging you can see the glasses themselves. On the box you have the iVisionWear logo beside the clear plastic, and a list of what the glasses are made to help with. On the side of the box you have a list of devices that the glasses are designed to be used with and on the back, a more detailed and in-depth list of what the glasses are made for and their features.

iVisionwear Eyewear Features:

iEdge Enhanced Lens

  • Increases visual comfort and acuity
  • Provides UVA/UVB protection

When you pull out the clear plastic insert from the box you will find the glasses sat between two pieces of plastic – which has a grey cardboard insert beneath them – and also a case to keep the glasses in. First impressions of the glasses are that they look very nice indeed with their silver metal frame and slightly yellow tinted lenses. The glasses themselves are very light and adjust easily enough when putting them on for the first time.

When I first started using the glasses I found that I kept getting distracted by the frame being visible, due to the lense not being overly wide. This is something that I did get used to very quick, so was no longer a problem. When wearing the glasses they were very light and comfortable to wear, especially for longer periods of time.

When looking at the monitor it did take a bit of time to get used to seeing things with a slight yellowy tint. Once my eyes had adjusted though, I can’t really complain about them. I have suffered with less headaches and my eyes have been watering a lot less since wearing them which means I get to spend more time on my PC – which can’t be a bad thing, right?

I know these are Computer Glasses so them not really doing the job when playing on my Xbox or PS3 is something that I was expecting, so I cannot complain about that.

Overall, for the price that you can get these glasses for ($39.99) you can’t really go wrong. Sure, you can spend quite a bit more money on a pair from a different brand and use those, but I am more than happy with these. I am kinda tempted to get myself a pair of the Gamers Edge glasses from their website, just to see how they measure up to their iVisionwear range when it comes to console gaming. If you are looking for a decent pair of PC glasses that aren’t going to set you back a lot of money then give these a try.
