For those of us in the field of technology eyestrain is a constant threat to our ability to work. Whether it is headaches, dry eyes, or just general discomfort, eyestrain is the bane of tech people everywhere. Further exacerbating the problem, the same people who work on computers all day may enjoy relaxing by playing games on computers also. Here to help combat eyestrain is SteelSeries with its DESMO line of digital eyewear co-created with Gunnar to help reduce eye fatigue. During the length of this article, Benchmark Reviews will evaluate the SteelSeries DESMO and their effect on eyestrain and fatigue.
Being blessed with 20/20 vision made it so that for many years I laughed at the thought of needing to wear glasses before my late 40's. This thought process has changed in the last four years as I have made it through college for a dual major in computer networking and network security, which combined with my love for computer gaming, and now working for Benchmark Reviews has increased my time spent on the computer greatly. The long hours on computers have only exacerbated the chronic migraines that I suffer from and although I love both my job at Benchmark Reviews, and my work as a student it can making either of these tasks tedious and unenjoyably due to the eyestrain that long continuous hours at a computer can cause. Working with Gunnar Optiks, SteelSeries had created an answer to the problem in the form of the SteelSeries DESMO digital eyewear.
The DESMO is designed to help reduce computer related eyestrain, helping workers be more efficient during long work days and gamers frag harder during long gaming session. The DESMO helps improve contrast, detail, and resolution through a combination of factors including of a slight magnification factor, a "microclimate" to help increase the moisture levels of the wearer's eyes, an anti-glare coating to help filter out some of the particularly harsh artificial light, and lastly the yellow lenses that shifts the colors to a warmer less energetic part of the spectrum. So lets us move forward to evaluate and decide if the DESMO work as advertised or if this is just fashion accessory for gamers.
