Greg Glass frames

Google Glass will soon support prescription glasses, as noted on their Google+ page. Above is a picture of the prototype worn by a member of their Glass team, Greg Priest-Dorman.

One of the questions we hear the most is whether there will be a prescription solution for Glass. The short answer is: yes!

The Glass design is modular, so you will be able to add frames and lenses that match your prescription. We understand how important this is and we’ve been working hard on it. Here’s a picture of +Greg Priest-Dorman, a member of the Glass team and an early pioneer in wearable computing, wearing one of the prototypes we’re testing.

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.

Google Glass is expected to launch before the end of 2013 and will retail for under $1,400. Who’s getting a pair? The future is here, folks.
