Re: glasses
There are so many applications that can be developed using Google glass, cannot wait to see what develops here in Toronto.

Re: glasses
@Alison yes, I remember when that news came out. I was wondering because quite a number of doctors do wear prescription lenses and so may need that component built in. The only thing about adding it is that it makes each pair only fully useful for the one for whom the lenses are prescribed. It is also possible, of course, to wear contact lenses, but some of us with prescription lenses wear our glasses most of the time.

Re: glasses
I don't know the answer to that question, @Ariella, and I didn't think to ask... sorry. I do know earlier this year Google Glass added a prescription option, earlier this year.

Very interesting, Alison. Do you know if the healthcare workers will have the option of having their presciptions built into the lenses? For people who like to wear contact lenses part of the time and glasses part of the time, two pairs might be necessary.
