CARLSBAD, Calif., March 31, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- This year, deduct the pain and stress of tax season preparation from your bottom line with GUNNAR Optiks®, the world's leading manufacturer of computer eyewear. For the first time ever, GUNNAR is teaming up with Staples, Inc. to make a suite of its advanced computer eyewear available in over 400 Staples retail locations across the United States starting today.
"GUNNAR Advanced Computer Eyewear is made for anyone who has to stare at a harsh computer screen for any extended period of time," noted GUNNAR Co-Founder and CEO Joe Croft. "Staples has earned a reputation for giving consumers the tools they need to make office work and tax time easy, and we're ecstatic to have GUNNAR join the Staples product line-up."
GUNNAR proprietary eyewear is designed to reduce digital eye strain while improving contrast, comfort and focus for heavy digital device users. GUNNAR patented lens technology filters out abrasive, artificial light and reflective glare, delivering crisp, panoramic views of high-resolution monitors and screens. Lightweight frame construction provides strength and optical stability while ergonomically fitting a wide variety of shapes and sizes. This union of form and function reduces the demanding effects of eye strain and dryness, protecting your eyes from giving out while working before you do.
The new collection available at Staples stores includes the following GUNNAR models: WI-FIVE in Espresso, as well as the VINYL, EMISSARY, ANIME, HAUS and PHENOM – each available in Onyx, to keep you in the black when doing your taxes.
