Since last week, Google Glass has entered open beta and anyone can purchase the once exclusive wearable device. This is awesome for those who have wanted the piece of technology, but a problem with online sales is that you can’t try before you buy. Luckily, two optometrist offices in southern California are trying to fix that.
Wink Optometry and Optometrix, located in Calabasas and Brentwood respectively, have now begun to sell the devices along with the prescription frames. The frames to hold prescription lenses that Google introduced earlier this year come with the device for free, further making visiting the offices appealing. Sadly, there will be no sales, as the devices are still $1,500.
To make it even better, Optometrix has a Glass expert visiting from Google for a limited time to help people with the purchase and use of Google Glass. We think it’s fantastic that the device is spreading so rapidly, which is bound to lessen the negative stigma surrounding it. What do you think of Glass being sold in retail locations?
