Google Announce Prescription Frames for Google Glass


Google has announced that Google Glass Frames will be available to people who need prescriptions to correct their vision.

The New glasses from Google will be compatible with corrective lenses and in the US the new frames will sell for around $225. Of course that price does not include the $1,500 price for Google Glass, which is in a test phase with a small number of “explorers” ahead of a wider release later this year.


Google said the current explorers can have their Glass fitted with prescription lenses or get newly designed frames.

The Glass team designed four new frames called Bold, Curve, Thin, and Split, and two new shades, or detachable sunglasses. The prescription  frames will be available to the current Glass testers in the next few weeks. Google Glass connects to the internet using Wi-Fi hot spots or by being wirelessly tethered to your mobile phone.
