I was very happy with my purchase of Pepper's Illuminated Restaurant Reading Glasses. I actually use them to read at night in bed after my husband wants lights out! I plan to take them on a cruise next month to read at night in bed. So far, they are very useful and easy to use. Thanks, Sharon
I was afraid these readers would be bulky with the batteries and lights. I was happily pleased at how stylish they turned out to be. Thanks Overstock!

My father-in-law is quite the handyman and seems to have 20 of everything! Since LED lights became so readily available & popular, it seems as though someone always gets him SOMETHING with some sort of light source, whatever type of tool, gadget, etc. it is. They are not by any means "old' but are both retired and we laugh at the number of reading glasses in the house in each room. And, as effective & blessed as they are at this age to not need prescription eyeglasses, they still need a light source when reading. It's sort of an inside joke that HE always gets something with a light, and she never does, so this seemed like the perfect combination for her. SHE LOVED THEM and is guarding them with her life! LOL She says they provide just enough light along with the magnification needed and has caught him "borrowing" them once or twice already, so now we know that he would enjoy a pair of these, too! But, it only seemed "fair" that she got the LED gift for Christmas this year from us and not him...HA! She was tickled by the fact that out of all the kids, we caved to HER getting something with the lighting and that she loves them so much! I would recommend these highly for one's own collecition, or as a gift to anyone...she's told everybody about how much she loves them and follows it up with "Why didn't I think of this?" LOL In addition, they are reasonably priced for quality readers and the only suggestion I have is that they not be advertised just as "restaurant reading glasses." They've been helpful for that, for sure, but for many other tasks, too. They were her "little something extra" gift and turned out to be her favorite!

I purchased two pairs of these glasses, one for my husband and one pair for my brother for Christmas. My brother is over the moon with these specs, his actual words "These are incredible I can actually see to read through them, what a brilliant idea." He has paid a lot of money for prescription glasses - these are far better!!! My husband will be using his at work, he can hardly wait to go back after the holidays - I am sure people will be contacting you for some after we give such brilliant accounts on these. ++Need to get myself some - feeling left out LOL - but good idea for computer at night for me. Invest in these glasses they are brilliant.

They work fine for the occassional need but wearing them more than a minute or two they are extremely uncomfortable. I have several pairs of reading glasses and haven't had any that hurt my ears like these do.

They really serve a purpose in restaurants that are dim and have small writing on the menu. They are definately a conversation piece!

Bought these glasses so my wife could read in low light situations. Glasses were wrong magnification for her, my fault, I guessed wrong. Other problem was that glasses were delivered with weak batteries on one side of glasses. This is a problem because each side of the glasses has at least four button batteries, expensive to replace. Glasses are nice looking for this type, seem to be good quality. Had to return.
Bought these illuminated readers for my husband for Christmas and besides using them to see menus he uses them to see his computer keyboard and to read the fine print in the newspaper. His only complaint was he thought the light could be brighter but at least he does not have to ask the waitress for a flashlight to read a menu anymore. I appreciated the spare batteries that came with the glasses and the hard sided case so the lenses do not get scratched. These readers are a very novel gift for a middle aged guy who still claims he does not need bifocals.
The magnification was correct. They are comfortable. I just wish the lights were brighter. I know the name of the product says "Restaurant Reading Glasses," but I was hoping they would be brighter to be able to read in a darkened room. Also, the angle at which the lights are directed cannot be adjusted, which would be helpful as they weren't quite right for me. I could use them in a darkened room, but the lights are pretty dim. For the price, however, they were a good deal. Others that I found online and in the drug store, were up to $10 more.
