Unboxing
The FL 2002 C1 Computer Glasses from Gamma Ray Optics arrive in a strong 2 part white box made from cardboard with the Gamma Ray logo printed in black on top, the sides are printed with 'Limitless Eyewear'.
Opening up the box you are presented with the soft cloth draw-string glasses case/bag.
The glasses case comes in a dark purple color with a purple somewhat shiny draw string to keep it closed.
The glasses arrive with 2x plastic sleeves on the temples of the glasses to protect against scratches during transit.
Review
The glasses themselves have prominent but non-distractive amber tinted lenses made from polycarbonate coated with a scratch resistant coating to make them ready for day to day use and wear. Folding to 22mm these glasses are incredibly lightweight and perfect for pockets while other glasses cause bulk.
The frame-less design is constructed and held together by placing pins from the two temples and nose bridge pieces through the polycarbonate lenses and secured by a clear piece of acrylic on the other side.
The hinges are constructed from metal and open out to roughly 95 degrees from the frame.
The left side temple is marked with the model name 'FLEXLITE' and the Gamma Ray Optics brand name.
At the tips of the temples which are covered in plastic is marked with the model number of glasses' GR FL-2002-C1' on the right hand side temple and 'Frame China' on the left temple.
Amber tinted glasses have been known to decrease eye-strain, increase contrast and decrease harsh blue wavelengths of light, which is exactly what these glasses do. When wearing everything is much sharper and warmer, while the tint isn't too yellow/amber and after a few seconds you forget the tint entirely from your vision, while keeping the benefits. Here you can also see a different angle on the pinned construction of the glasses.
The bridge and nose pads of the glasses are incredibly comfortable, with help from the extra light weight glasses you can not feel them after a few minutes of wearing them. After wearing them you're not left with marks where the nose pads where sitting on your nose either which is a giant positive.
With the glasses placed in front of a white light, you can easily see the amount of blue light and other wavelengths (including UV) are reflected back off the amber tinted lenses, leaving the rest of the light spectrum intact.
