Google Glass Will Now Come with Prescription Frames

Sunglasses are available, too

While Google Glass has offered a wide array of technologically advanced uses, it was lacking on one very practical front: The glasses weren’t helping anyone with their actual sight.

But on Tuesday, Google took a step forward on the vision front by offering prescription titanium frames, coming in both transparent and shaded lenses. The customizable frames, catering corrective factors of +4 to -4, cost an additional $225 on top of the $1,500 base Google Glass price. They will be subsidized by VSP, an optical health insurance provider.

While Glass wearers have been restricted to this homogenous look:

They can now pick frames that look like actual, more fashion-forward, glasses.

Here are some of the looks:

While Glass is currently only available to a limited number of “Explorers,” Google plans to launch the product to consumers in late 2014.
