Earlier this week, a company called Rochester Optical announced -- on Google+
, no less -- it will be producing custom prescription lenses for Google Glass. The post says lenses will be available for purchase in early 2014. That matches up with the timeline Google set out for the next wave of Google Glass
last week. The arrival of prescription options doesn't mean that optically impaired people everywhere will suddenly decide to swap out their traditional eyewear for wearable computing devices. But if even a small class of the corrective lens-wearers are able to say they need
to put on their Google Glass to see, it could change legal and social expectations about the device.
