Remember those old hobby “glasses” that had no real glass or a slight magnification, but a couple of small bulbs on the side that lit up, a little, to help you see whatever project you were working on? Times and technology have changed, and now those dorky things have been replaced by much more attractive Foster Grant frames with highly efficient and bright LED lights. There’s one on either side at the temple, and a simple, easy to use button to press on the inside of each temple to turn them on/off. Battery life is around 50 hours, so you’ll get in a lot of reading (even in the dark) or work on your hobby before you have to change the batteries. They’re really light, as well, and come in a variety of diopters (magnifications) to fit your needs.

  • LightSpecs by Foster Grant provide powerful LED lights along with the magnification of reading glasses
  • Patented design focuses light right where you are looking
  • LightSpecs are lightweight and comfortable
  • Equipped with replaceable batteries that last up to 50 hours

    These glasses are amazing!!! I am shocked by the amount of light they provide. They make reading in a darkened area sooooo much easier. I would definetly recommend these to anyone (and everyone) that needs to have extra light when working on any task.

    I tried on a pair today. Feel good. However the clerk and I never could figure out what battery I would need for a replacement battery. Did not buy because I did not know what battery could be used for replacement and if I could even find any. Would have bought if I could figure that out.

    llindy: An Amazon ad said they use two CR-1632 batteries. I will definitely price batteries before I buy ’cause you can go broke buying batteries. I will log 50 hours of reading quickly.

    I too cannot figure out what batteries it takes and the battery compartment will not open. I have purchased two pair and wish I would have researched more prior to purchase. At a price tag of $25 eac it should not be this difficut and an extra set of batteries should have been included. I don’t know if there is a way to repalce batteries.

    I went to every pharmacy and store in my area to find the right replacement batteries. I finally found them at Radio Shack for $5.00 a battery. SO, I paid $25 for the glasses and $20 for replacement batteries.
    These glasses are great, but get expensive if you use them as much as I do.

    Have you looked on ebay? I’ve actually found very inexpensive replacement batteries on ebay and amazon for a variety of devices.

    I’m going crazy trying to figure out how to open the battery case. The instructions on the FG website are useless. It looks like it’s meant to slide open, but the force required seems like it would break them. Can’t pry them open either. Can anyone help?

    Impossible open the battery compartment. It is my first and last pair of Foster Grants!
