From the text:

Piggy wore the remainders of a pair of shorts, his fat body was golden brown, and the glasses still flashed when he looked at anything. (Page 90)

Piggy was rubbing his glasses on his shorts and squinting at the sea.

“Piggy’s specs!” shoutedRalph. “If th efire’s all out, we’ll need them—” He stopped shouting and swayed on his feet. Piggy was only just visible, bumbling up from the beach. Ralph looked at the horizon, then up to the mountain. Was it better to fetch Piggy’s glasses, or would the ship have gone?

Ralph made a step forward and Jack smacked Piggy’s head. Piggy’s glasses flew off and tinkled on the rocks. Piggy cried out in terror: “My specs!”

“One side’s broken.” Piggy grabbed and put on the glasses. He looked malevolently at Jack. “I got to have them specs. Now I only got one eye. Jus’ you wait—”
