Google announces prescription frames

Google has just announced their line of frames, minus lenses, that fit onto the wearable computer Google Glass. These follow along with partner companies announcing the coming availability of complete prescription solutions.

In their official Google Plus announcement the Glass team said

If we had a nickel for every time someone has asked about prescription lenses for Glass… well, we’d have a lot of nickels. So we want you to be the first to know that the Titanium Collection is here, with a handful of new styles for Glass so you can make it your own. Whether you wear prescription glasses or just want a new look, we’ve got four feather-light titanium frames designed just for you. And if you need prescription lenses and have vision insurance (such as VSP), your policy might even help cover your new frames. Explorers can access the Titanium Collection tomorrow afternoon, along with two new styles of twist-on shades.

Rochester Optical had previously announced their solution which is yet to ship but will include a selection of frame styles and lenses which mount on the existing Glass.
