anyone ever use these? http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Gunnar+Eyewear+-+Gunnar+Gaming+Eyewear+%26%23151%3B+Vayper+Onyx+Frame/4833917.p?id=1218538977567&skuId=4833917&st=gunnar&cp=1&lp=1#tabbed-customerreviews

It was brought up today when talking to another photographer friend of mine. He said he uses them when he edits all day. Helps his eyes.

Thoughts?

The lenses are yellow tinted...wouldn't that impact how you view color?

My videographer friend has a pair and he says the yellow tinted definitely affects the color. I don't know how you can wear this to color correct. Maybe for photographers who are color blind or only process in black and white?

When I edit I usually cull images first. then go back and select the ones i want to be black and white and the ones i want to add a different touch to them or something special. after this is when i go back through and fix the white balance and color correct the images. this usually takes an hour per wedding since i can batch a group of photos with the same white balances. So for about 75% of my editing I could wear them. I was just wondering if anyone tried them or heard of them?

Or does anyone know of something similar? I am beginning to think the 15 or so hours i spend in front of the computer some days is starting to hurt my eyes.

Upgrade your monitor or viewing environment. Those glasses are not a solution.

I spoke to a few optometrists about this actually, because I'd get headaches and my eyes would start to really hurt after editing (video) for 8-10 hours a day (they checked my vision, nothing wrong there) and all they could suggest was looking away from the screen every ~10 minutes and focusing on something farther away than your screen for 30 seconds to a minute. I'd asked about possible glasses for editing, and nah-zeeng. If there's something out there though that really does help I'd love to know what it is, 'cause long editing days are killer.

Ive tried eveything. At my day job I edit on a $5000 monitor. At home I have decent monitors as well. I have tried a well lit room, a dark room and everything in between. Doesnt matter. 10+ hours on the computer and I'm hurting. I need a solution like special glasses or something.

Sounds like they might be at least worth a try:

Lol editing goggles!!!
My day job involves staring at a screen for 9 hours most days, so I am feeling eye strain as well. I find it is most helpful just to take small breaks every hour or so. I go play with my dog in the yard

You can get yellow tinted shooting glasses at any sporting goods store for a few bucks if you want to see if it will do anything...but yea, I work at a computer all day and the advice from the eye doc has always just been to give 'em a break once in a while, focus on distant objects.

search for yoga eye exercises....

The gist is just to look as far as you can in every direction to try to stretch and relax the muscles in your eye.
