Google put everyone with less than perfect vision at ease today by announcing Glass will work with prescription lenses. Google posted a picture of Glass team member Greg Priest-Dorman sporting such a pair. This news is not exactly a surprise as a prescription lens equipped set was spotted in NYC earlier this year but it’s nice to hear something official.
Google said Glass will support both prescription lenses and frames. For the mega-stylish among you this likely means designer frames will also be a go. Unfortunately the initial “Explorer Edition” release version will not accept the alternate lenses and frames. If you wear glasses you’ll have to go with contacts or just wait. Google said the prescription version will be available later this year.
