With Google Glass expected to be released to the public sometime later this year, as a glasses-wearing American, I have always wondered if I’d need to ditch my prescription glasses in order to enjoy the device. It seems Google has been hearing that same concern from their potential customers and have addressed it on their Project Glass Google+ page.
If you’ve been wondering if Google Glass will be available for prescription glasses, Google confirms there will be something for us in the future.
“The Glass design is modular, so you will be able to add frames and lenses that match your prescription,” the Project Glass page says. “We understand how important this is and we’ve been working hard on it. We’re still perfecting the design for prescription frames. Although the frames won’t be ready for the Explorer Edition’s release, hang in there — you can expect to see them later this year.”
I really like the prescription glasses I have right now, especially since I spent over $200 for them. Knowing there will be an option for prescription-glasses wearers is one I’m sure many others like me were wondering.
