Eschenbach Features Foster Grant’s LightSpecs

Top Line: For presbyopes who need to use readers in dark or dimly lit environments, Eschenbach offers Foster Grant’s LightSpecs, readers that provide both magnification and bright LED illumination.
Close Up: LightSpecs are ideal for reading menus in dimly lit restaurants or for reading books, magazines or other material while away or at home. Plus, since the LED lights are so focused on the object being viewed, users don’t have to worry about disturbing others in the room, so they are perfect for use while reading in bed. The added illumination reduces eye fatigue and helps users focus on near objects more easily and for longer periods of time, thereby increasing patient satisfaction and compliance.
Vital Stats: LightSpecs are available from Eschenbach in two unisex frame styles (tortoise and black) and six different strengths (+1.50D, +2.00D, +2.50D, +3.00D, +3.50D, and +4.00D), though they can also be prescription-corrected as well. Each pair features two LEDs (one on each temple) that are individually activated with an easy flick of a switch and powered by two flat button-sized batteries that last 50 hours. The batteries are easily replaced and four extra batteries are built into the top of the hard, protective case which is included. An attractive point-of-purchase display holding 14 pair is also available.
