Welcome to PupilBox

A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step, and so our journey here begins with one blog post. If you’re reading this first entry, you are in for a wild ride over the coming years as we develop and improve our current solutions and invent new, innovative technologies. We are going to build a business that is centered around our customers, is always fully transparent, and who you can trust to only deliver the highest quality, lab tested products. We are going to build a community of loyal, passionate “Pupilboxers” who are as excited as we are about not rubbing their tired eyes, getting great sleep, and having the peace of mind that they aren’t frying their eyes out of their sockets. We are going to change the way that the world thinks about Blue Light.

“Change the way that the world thinks about Blue Light, you say? That’s a tall order.” Sure. It is. But this won’t be the first time that the public needed a paradigm shift in relation to their health.

In fact, this isn’t the first time that we need to change the way that we think about how different kinds of light affects us. Less than 100 years ago, no one was concerned about the affects of the sun on our skin. Progressing through the years after the first synthetic sunscreen was produced in 1928, the US military created a sunscreen in 1944 for those soldiers in the Pacific theater. In fact, we didn’t even consider SPF until 1974, less than 50 years ago.

Now in 2016, we are well aware that excess exposure to UV radiation increases our risk of melanoma and photodermatitis, and the public at large takes action to protect themselves from this threat.

We’re going to do the same thing about Blue Light.

PupilBox is going to be a thought leader in this space. A multitude of studies have demonstrated that exposure to blue light causes irreparable damage to the retina and increases the risk of macular degeneration, an eye disease that will actually cause permanent vision loss in the center field of vision. There is also significant evidence that interrupting the regular function of the pineal gland (this produces melatonin) significantly increases our risk of cancers and chronic migraines– not to mention the basic health concerns of poor sleep.

The more we learn about the effects of excessive Blue Light on our bodies, the more passionate we have become about protecting you from it. We know that the presence of Blue Light in our lives is not going anywhere. If anything, we are going to be more and more dependent on devices for work and entertainment. The good news is that with PupilBox, you can have a system to ensure that your eyes are comfortable throughout the day, you’re sleeping well, and you aren’t at risk for the long term damage that can be caused by Blue Light.

We’re excited that you’re here to learn and grow with us. You’re a pioneer in making the shift to Blue Light safety.

Welcome to PupilBox.

Digital Eye Strain (DES)  isn’t just caused by Blue Light. We wish it was, because then our glasses could totally solve the problem! Unfortunately, there are numerous factors that make your eyes tired and your productivity plummet by causing DES. One of the contributors can be the reduced blink rate which occurs during screen use. We know that blink rate can decrease by as much as a factor of 5 during screen use, but why?
