Can I replace my regular glasses with Gunnars?

I was wondering if I could simply use Gunnars 24/7, even when I'm not using my computer. Are there any fundamental differences between Gunnars and regular glasses that would make it ad for me to use them even outdoors?

Have you tried turning it off and on again?

By regular glasses, do you mean prescription glasses or sunglasses?

They block out blue light by having a yellow tint so i would not recommend it unless you want to see in a yellow tint lol

Ask Gunnar if they can make lenses with your dioptry, if so, why not?

Are we talking about the yellow tinted ones or the clear ones? I wouldn't be too keen on seeing everything with a yellow tint, walking around all day.

If you wear prescription glasses, OBVIOUSLY you can't swap them for gunnars.

If you are talking about sunglasses however yeah you can swap them, I sometimes wear yellow tinted safety glasses (basically same as gunnars without the magnification)  and I love it it makes everything seem clearer. I'd wear them all the time if I didn't look like such a knob with them.

The yellow tinted ones would not be advised to use every day. The colouring of them is designed to block out the bright blue hues, and so would limit your colour spectrum. Plus you'd look a bit strange as well.

You could also get glasses that do the same thing as gunnars at pretty much any shop that makes glasses.

Someone told Luke and Linus at CES 2017 to "Unban the legend known as Jerakl" and that's about all I've got going for me.

No, Gunnars aren't prescription glasses and if you drive for example you legally need your prescription glasses.

You can have prescription versions which is just putting the filter on a your regular prescription glasses and then labeling it GunnarRx but i don't think it would be wise as the filter on Gunnars could lead to migraines and a unrealistic view of how things really looks.

Are there any websites where I could order cheap prescription glasses then? I need to get gunnars as well as prescription glasses
