Wetley creating custom-fit prescription lenses for Google Glass for $150


One firm doesn’t seem keen on waiting for Google to bring out a consumer-ready version of Google Glass before they begin offering custom lens services. Wetley has announced that they are creating custom frames and lenses for Google Glass that will allow prescription eyewear users to use Google Glass and, well, see at the same time.


The solution is a snap-in frame that attaches to Glass in a way that makes it easy and natural to use. You have a couple of different options for getting your Google Glass tricked out:

  • Pay $100 for the clip-on frame, and find a lens cutter willing to cut for it
  • Pay $150 for the clip-on frame and lens from Wexley themselves

Many people will likely opt for the Wetley-cut option for the sake of convenience. Their lenses are crafted out of a strong polycarbonate and coated using Crisal anti-reflective solution for an optimal viewing experience.

Folks interested can head to OpticsPlanet.com to order it. You’ll have to wait about 2-3 weeks for your order to be fulfilled, but we can’t imagine many will complain about that with so few options available as it is.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Yo, Q, it says “Wexley” under where the prices are mentioned…is that a typo or the lense company?

  2. I can’t wait. This is the only thing that’s keeping me from wearing mine on a day to day basis.
