when i have to re-drill a larger hole
i make a template board
with the new size
clamp it over the old one
your cut forstner bit might just work
as you will only be cutting a thin bit of the edge of the old hole
not the whole thing

make the template the right thickness
and when the bit top
is flush with the top of the template
you should have about just the right depth
in all the holes

slide it along and clamp
then for the end ones just cut one end of the template
to get closer to the corner

with a right angle drill
just be careful to keep it square
or the glasses may tilt

good luck
