Gunnar Optiks has come up with a solution to one of the biggest problems that people with bad vision face - needing to wear two pairs of glasses when watching a 3D movie.
Gunnar is a unique company that currently offers a pair of glasses designed to reduce eyestrain when looking at monitors or TV screens.

Today, it released a new product - universal movie theater 3D glasses. These glasses are compatible with any projection screen or TV that uses RealD technology (not the active shutter technology used in the new slate of 3D TVs).

Two different frames are available: the "Phenom" and the "Anime," each priced at $99. They are available at Buy.com and Amazon.com.

Even more interesting is the news that Gunnar is also working on a version of these 3D glasses that will be available for those with eyewear prescriptions. That means that if you go into a movie theater, you won't have to do anything. You don't need to pick up one of the cheap pairs of disposable glasses, and you don't need to remove the glasses you're already wearing.

In addition, there will be more custom frames available within the coming months, ranging up to $199 in price.
