There are a lot of questions in regards to Google Glass since it is a futuristic technology. The burning question is how the search giant plants on ensuring that those with prescription glasses won’t be left out. Well, Google has a very good answer.

The Project Glass team took to Google+ to reiterate that Glass will work well with most eye prescriptions. “We understand how important this is and we’ve been working hard on it,” the Glass team writes. To assure everyone, Google photographed company employee Greg Priest-Dorman wearing Glass on a test pair of frames.

While the prescription-ready version of Glass won’t be ready alongside the Explorer Edition, Google says that those wearing glasses can expect to see a solution to the problem by the end of 2013. Glass should be available to any who wants the device in the US on the basis that owners of Glass aren’t wanting to visit a certain bar in Seattle at the end of 2013.

Of course, another question that will rise from this is if it will cost extra. The Glass team didn’t mention anything of the like, but considering that Glass is modular and you’ll be able to add frames and lenses that match your prescription, it’s not expected.
