GUNNAR Optiks glasses help you prevent symptoms known as 'Digital Eye Fatigue' and 'Computer Vision Syndrome', more common as eye-strain and headache in that regard. They also give you some sort of sharper, clearer vision and may support improving your performance.

Our players have been testing GUNNAR's products for quite some time now and have only good things to say, which is why they'll be using theses glasses for both practice and tournament appearances. Expect some extensive reviews as well as all different kinds of competitions and giveaways soon!

"As of today, I'm happy that GUNNAR Optiks and SK Gaming has come to agreement to support each other in different aspects, as we will use their products with pride and lookin' damn awesome while playing! As many people know, after playing Counter-Strike on professional level, you're playing for hours and hours straight without stoping yourself, because you simply don't have the time for it! Doing this, you are more or less damaging your eyes of the cost on being the best. And this why we chose Gunnar Optics - they are reducing the damage into your eyes while playing and you feel less "hurting" in the eyes after playing this hours. Try it out yourself! "

SK Gaming's Carlos 'ocelote' Santiago:

"We are happy to announce a partnership with GUNNAR Optiks, especially after our players pushed for this themselves. When playing on such a high level and with the intensity as pro players do, it comes down to these little things that can make a difference. Those glasses are such a factor. Plus I have to admit, their sun glasses are extremely cool on top of that!"

Michael Polin, Director of Marketing at Gunnar Optiks:
"GUNNAR is proud to support the eSPORTS community. By officially launching our partnership with SK Gaming, we're teaming up with a great ally to improve and enhance the way people and gamers interact with digital screens.
