Are you ready for new technology and wearable headgear? Google Glass is a wearable computer with an optical head mounted display paving the wave of the future. Technology is ever evolving and Bissell Eye Care is now an approved vendor for Google Glass. You may have noticed the photo on our Facebook Page. We wanted to weigh in on your thoughts about technology.

The new technology isn’t available on all frame types. In a partnership with eyewear company Luxottica, Google provides four prescription frame choices for about $225.00 U.S.

Voice controlled, there are seven things you can do with Google Glass:

  1. Take a picture
  2. Record a video
  3. Get Directions
  4. Send a Message
  5. Make a call
  6. Visit Google + and Hangouts
  7. Google

The technology and eyewear will continue to evolve, but one thing is for certain, do not drive while wearing these glasses.  To learn more about what Google Glass can do and to ‘see’ sample images, click here.
