While a few different optometrists have attempted to create custom prescription lens solutions for Google Glass already, most folks are waiting to see what Google will be doing in the way of official offerings. They’ve finally revealed those details, and they’re calling it the Google Glass Titanium Collection.

What you’ll be getting is a slim, yet diverse collection of stylized frames that are ready for prescription lenses. Whether you’re going for that book smart trendy look or something that’ll compliment a nice wide pair of eyes, there should be something here that catches your eye. And if you’re more of the sporty type, Google has also released a few new pair of clip-on shade styles for existing Glass units.

The new frames are made from lightweight titanium, so you can wear these things on your face all day without feeling like the world is coming down on your nose and ears. Google says the frames might be covered under some vision care plans, so you might even have options for having your healthcare provider covering some of the costs of buying them.

As for those costs, we’re not quite sure what they are just yet. Google is looking to make those details available to Explorer users later this afternoon. In the meantime, you’ll be able to check out more pics of the Titanium frames in the gallery above, as well as inside the cool promo video you see embedded. Color us excited.
