Will these older passive glasses still work with new TV

Hi... Since the wife and I wear prescription glasses I want to try these CLIP on style LG passive 3D glasses but they seem to have been discontinued. However... I found them on eBay. I just purchased the LG 55UH8500 4K Ultra HD 3D TV and here is my question. Sorry for my ignorance on the subject but has the passive technology changed since these glasses came out a couple years ago?? Will these still work with the TV I have or should I purchase something that guarantees compatibility. Thank you in advance.

Here are the actual glasses Im interested in:

LG's passive tech has not changed; they just offer it on fewer models now. Those glasses will work with the new TV.

I pickup some cheap circular polarized clip on 3D glasses for Amazon for my parents. They use them fine with their LG OLED.

Was at Best Buy and tried out a pair of the Sony TDG-500P passive 3D glass on the LG 60UH8500 and they are NOT compatible. I guess not all passive 3D is the same.

UPDATE: Got a response from an LG representative:

Thank you for contacting LG email services!

Upon checking the owners manual of the UH8500, the recommended 3D glasses is AG-F***, so yes AG-F220 and other “F” 3D glasses series will work to this TV.

I hope this help in addressing your concern.


Should you have any other questions, please feel free to contact us again via Email, Live Chat, or Phone by calling 1-800-243-0000.

Thank you for choosing LG!

Best regards,

Angelica
