Its a LED light with an elastic strap to hold it pn your head ..most are ajustable up and down so you dont have to tilt your head ,mine uses 3 aaa batterys in the shop under normal use batterys will last a month or more they produce no heat Good light.when fishing it will last all night and have battery still working next morning,, Most of all it shines where you are looking ,no flashlight or drop light. But you will look like a one eyed monster.LOL

I thought that was such a stupid idea until I found one in a total at work. Just a few days later I had to go under the house for some plumbing and HOLY CRAP does that light on your head work good, I will NEVER go under there or anything similar without it, man was I wrong.

I feel your pain. I wear what they call 'blended bifocals' - no hard line. Working close under the dash is tricky, because I'm trying to tip my head back to see out of the bottom of my glasses. I used to just take them off, but now I need a little help up close too. Your son was kind - my daughter just tells me 'you're getting old!'.
