Prescription Google Glass Lenses?

Google Glass Prescriptions

Google is now adding prescription frames and new styles of detachable sunglasses to its computerised, internet-connected goggles known as Glass. 

Glass is basically a small computer with a camera and a display screen above the wearer's right eye.

The device sits at eyebrow level, higher than where eyeglasses would go.
It lets wearers surf the web, ask for directions and take photos or videos.
Akin to wearing a smartphone, Glass also lets people read their email, share photos on Twitter and Facebook, translate phrases while travelling or partake in video chats.
From today, the Californian company is offering four styles of prescription frames and two new types of shades available to its "explorers" - the people trying out Glass.

Come in to see us today with your Google Glass frames to discuss getting your prescription lenses fitted into this latest piece of gadgetry!

Thinking about buying glasses online?

Thinking of buying glasses online? 

It may save you money, but buying glasses online could be rather short-sighted.

The high cost of prescription spectacles and contact lenses on the high street has led many to look online for bargains.

Researchers from consumer champion Which? bought and examined 36 pairs from 13 online retailers. 

Of these, 15 were not up to scratch and four were described as ‘woeful’, with problems including mismatched lenses and failure to meet the prescription supplied by the testers.

Certain glasses that are bought are believed to be 'dangerous' for drivers

Also, A study by the School of optometry, l’Université de Montréal, found an astounding 94% failure rate with a random sampling of eyeglasses ordered online!
