My Experience with Pixel Eyewear
Welcome back to another post at Mind Over Mango! I know many of you may have seen my little teasers on my social media about my collaboration with Pixel Eyewear. I sort of crossed paths with this U.S. based company almost randomly and was immediately intrigued by what they claim their eyewear does. I needed to test it for myself though to see if what they claimed was true, and the results surprised me.
Disclaimer: This article is in partnership with Pixel Eyewear. Pixel sent me this pair of glasses (the Capra version) to test out and write about my results. I have not been paid to write this blog article and all opinions are my own. Please read my privacy & disclosure page for more information regarding partnerships on my platforms.
Pixel Eyewear is not your typical glasses company. In fact, their birth into the glasses world comes from a unique concept that is scientifically backed with evidence to support it. The screen you’re reading this on right now is currently admitting something called “high-energy visible blue light (HEV)” or “blue light” for short. Blue light has been proven to be dangerous to our eye health by damaging our retinas, perhaps one of the most essential parts to our vision because it helps our brains to understand light intensity, and picks up colors all around us.
Fun Fact: Pixel Eyewear’s glasses are unisex!
The average American spends at least 10 hours in front of blue light screens every day. For me, on the other hand, I spend probably upwards of 15 hours of my day attached to my devices. Why? My life is pretty much centralized around being plugged in; between work and pursuing my graduate degree 100% on the web, it has really proven to mess with my body.
Fun Fact: Pixel Eyewear comes in non-prescription, Rx prescription, and reading glasses.
I suffer from severe daily and nightly chronic headaches, fatigue, and terrible insomnia. My headaches can last upwards of 12 hours a day, every day, for SEVEN days a week. As for my fatigue and insomnia, they also are never-ending. Some nights I sleep only two hours because having been on my gadgets for work all day has honestly screwed up my entire sleep schedule. If I can manage 5 hours, that is considered a great night’s sleep for me! (It’s really not, but I try to stay optimistic).
Since I have started using my Pixel glasses, I have noticed a complete change in the way my days and nights are wired. My headaches have become alleviated, and my fatigue/insomnia has been drastically cut down. What’s the secret? Pixel Eyewear has implemented a revolutionary lens technology like none other.
The sweet spot between clarity & effectiveness. Our lenses filter 50% of blue light & up to 95% at the strongest wavelength. A clear, surgical protection allowing you to focus on your work instead of your migraines.
Performace Without Losing Clarity
Right before I discovered Pixel, I had been doing an insane amount of research into ways to rid myself of my dreadful headaches. I had just settled on the decision to pursue Botox injections to help relieve myself of what I considered to be the causes of my head pains. Now that I have begun using Pixel though, I have since discarded the notion that I needed to pay for expensive chemical injections into my face in hopes that it would end my constant migraines. To me, this was honestly such a great feeling, both physically and mentally, because now I had a quicker, easier, less expensive way to discover that I could be free of the constant pain I was in.
I’m really so excited about running across Pixel Eyewear. It honestly has changed the way I work and live, and just being able to do what I love the most without the nasty side effects of blue light has been a real game-changer. If you’re anything like me and work online most of the time, taking your eye health into consideration should become your newest priority (if it hasn’t been already)!
