GUNNAR Optiks Partners with Razer to Launch First Ever Gaming Glasses for Teens
GUNNAR Optiks - the preeminent force and No. 1 in gaming glasses - and licensing partner Razer, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, today announced the launch of MOBA, Razer Edition, a pair of gaming glasses designed specifically for teens and young adults. The lightweight wrap-around frames are headset compatible and come with GUNNAR’s patented lens technology to help enhance performance and protect the eyes from blue light and symptoms associated with digital eye strain.
“Razer has always embraced and supported our younger gaming fans with the products they need to fulfil their passion for playing,” said Addie Tan, Associate Director, Razer CEO’s Office. “Our multi-year partnership with GUNNAR has demonstrated a demand from adult gamers for quality gaming glasses that help them perform better while gaming. It is with great pleasure that we are now able to offer our younger gaming fans the same quality and protection in a pair of Razer branded gaming glasses designed specifically for them.”
The specially designed MOBA, Razer Edition glasses feature a lightweight, stainless steel, wrap-around frame with slim Razer branded temples for headset comfort. The sleek frame comes with an adjustable nose pad for individual fit. It also comes with GUNNAR’s patented Amber lens in Natural-Focus which includes a smudge resistant coating, reduces glare, helps prevent dry eyes and blocks 65% of harmful blue light emitted from digital screens. MOBA, Razer Edition is also available in prescription.
“Gaming touches all demographics. As the use of technology and digital screens explodes across the globe, the younger generation is at risk more than ever in developing issues with their visual system due to heavy screen use,” said GUNNAR Optiks, Director of Marketing, Georgina Petrie. “My son is an avid Fortnite player and when he’s not schooling from home on his laptop, he’s on his phone or PS4 playing with his friends. Knowing he is wearing these gaming glasses gives me peace of mind that his vision is being protected by the most advanced gaming glasses available on the market.”
Pioneering the standard for blue light protection with its “Blue Light Protection Factor™ (BLPF)”, GUNNAR created a lens protection scale similar to SPF in sun protection. Their wide range of lens tints include Clear, which blocks 35% blue light, Amber, which blocks 65% blue light, Sun, which blocks 90% blue light and Amber Max, for nighttime use, which blocks 98% of blue light and helps regulate sleep. GUNNAR’s gaming glasses help combat the adverse effects of digital eye strain which can be experienced by players who game for long periods of time. GUNNAR also offers a wide range of computer, reading, prescription, sun and kid’s glasses.
MOBA, Razer Edition comes with a Razer-branded glasses pouch and cleaning cloth. MOBA can be purchased at GUNNAR.com and Amazon starting at $49.99, with a prescription option available starting at $199.99. A launch trailer showcasing the key features can be viewed here:
