1. Lighted reading glasses that provide enhanced viewing of text of a predetermined conventional size in a predetermined distance range from the glasses in poorly lit areas, the lighted reading glasses comprising:

  • a pair of lenses having outer portions and inner portions that are adjacent to and laterally spaced from each other and providing a predetermined field of view for a user;

    light transmissive material of the lenses having a predetermined configuration for refracting light to provide the user with vision correction of a predetermined character to allow the predetermined size of text disposed in the predetermined distance range within the field of view to be substantially clearly read;

    a pair of lights associated with the lenses each having a predetermined high light strength rating and a predetermined lighted area in which light emanating therefrom is projected;

    a pair of light mounts adjacent the outer portions of the lenses that cooperate with the lights to fix the predetermined lighted areas relative to the lenses to be oriented for overlap to provide an overlapping lighted area that is maximized in size in the predetermined distance range; and

    support surfaces of the light mounts having a predetermined configuration which capture the lights in a predetermined orientation to be fixed against movement in any direction such that the predetermined lighted areas emanating therefrom are directed inwardly toward each other to avoid the need to adjust the lights for maximizing the size of the overlapping lighted area in the field of view at the predetermined distance range.
