With elevated excitement over Google Glass as of late, it seems fitting that a company start offering prescription lenses for the headwear. Rochester Optical announced today alongside the hiring of industry figure Tim Moore that it will bring custom prescription, fashion and sport lenses that work with Google Glass in early 2014. Currently, you can only choose from a simple pair of sunglass or clear protective (and non-prescription) lenses from Google.
Although many Glass Explorers that need prescription lenses have been making due with either contacts or wearing both their regular glasses and Google Glass at the same time, it’s wonderful to hear that a third party will be making custom lenses. Not only does this open up the market for other companies to get in on Google Glass market, it also means even more people out there can potentially wear the tech in the future.
