Google Glass Will Be Available With Prescription Lens.

Google recently announced a partnership with a vision care giant VSP Global to offer prescription lenses for its Android powered glasses. The main goal behind this partnership is to make Google Glass available for the potential users that today wear prescription eyewear. Statistically, there are 110 million users in United States that currently wear prescription eyewear, and Google can't afford neglecting 110 million users.So, partnership with giant eyewear company like VSP Global with network of 30,000 eye doctors appears to be a good fit.


Google Glass with prescription lens will assure that no prescription eyewear users have to awkwardly mount Google Glass on their eyewear to enjoy it. The similar complaint still exist in 3D TV which requires to wear 3D Glasses on prescription eye wear, it is a problem which is yet not resolved. Google Glass, which so far available only to few selected developers, is likely to hit the consumer market with price tag of $1,500 by December of 2014.

This is very short news, I am not satisfied.

Somebody, kindly cover news of Google Glass which is related to this article : 'Google Glass designed frames for prescription eye wear users' & merge this article in yours if you like. Else delete it.
I have college work pending, else I would've covered it.

@Abhishek Rawal Looks like it is now quite old. You can convert it into a normal discussion if that's the case.
