As Seen On TV: Page Brite

How would you like to be able to read in bed without your partner telling you to turn off the light, or read the crossword puzzle without straining your eyes?

The “Page Brite” is an intriguing product for anyone who reads, especially for folks whose eyes aren't what they used to be.

The Page Brite promises to relieve eye strain. It illuminates whatever you’re reading and claims to increase the size of the text three-fold, but would we take a dim view of the Page Brite in our "As Seen On TV" test?

The Page Brite is a thin, acrylic magnifying glass with LED lights inside. You just flip the switch to see the lights that would illuminate either side of a page you're reading. Reading crosswords can be difficult with the tiny print, but the Page Brite actually allows you to see the questions fairly well without glasses. You can also adjust the Page Brite by pushing it in or out.

The Page Brite is also helpful with novels that tend to have tiny print. The product fits perfectly over the entire page. It fits well over photographs, too, allowing you to see the tiny details.

The Page Brite is pretty good if you want to read at night without waking your partner. It lights up the book, but it doesn't have as much ambient light that would disturb someone next to you.

Another use for the Page Bright is as a flashlight. If your power goes out, you can just take the end of the lamp cord to help you find your way around.

Whether you like to read a little or a lot, read at night or your eyes aren't as good as they used to be, the Page Brite is a great little tool to have around and a fairly bright idea, so we're going to give it the thumbs up.

The Page Brite costs $10 at Walgreens, but you can find them in a lot of stores and on the internet. For more information, click here.
