Google (GOOG) confirmed on Tuesday that a prescription version of Google Glass will be released later this year. There had been concerns that the company’s highly anticipated device would be unavailable to consumers who rely on traditional glasses to see, however this won’t be the case. Google revealed that while a prescription version won’t be available when the Explorer Edition of Google Glass launches this summer, the company expects to release a version that will support prescription lenses ahead of the holiday season. Google Glass is expected to launch later this year for under $1,500.
