LEICESTER, U.K. - Aug. 5, 2014 - PRLog -- 'Google Glass is just like a smartphone-but hands-free allowing you to multitask more easily. You can take photos and film footage, access Google for reference information; translation services, maps, images etc, and share experiences with other people in a similar way that Skype connects people, by simply speaking to the head-set which is worn as a pair of spectacles. Simmilar technology is already used by the military and air force'.

Any online search results can be displayed directly in the upper right hand side of the user’s vision, which according to Google (https://support.google.com/glass/answer/3064128?hl=en&ref_topic=3063354), is ‘the equivalent of a 25-inch high definition screen from eight feet away’.

‘Although the appliance is already available to buy online and currently costs over £1000 and comes supplied with a plano non-preacription lenses, the appliance can be made up to an individuals glasses prescription by specialist opticians practices such as ours that will still allows the optimised viewing area but also includes single vision, bifocal and varifocal lens options’, said Mohammed Bhojani Optometrist and Contact Lens Specialist at Visual Answers opticians in Quorn and Barrow Upon Soar near Loughborough.

‘Like most 3D and HD TV images, Google Glass is most effective and most comfortable to use when the eyes are correctly focussed and the lenses centred correctly – this could be with a special spectacle lens or even contact lens’, said Mohammed.

'Research confirms the image display on Google Glass does not seem to have a negative effect on your eye health but the design could be a source of distraction when driving a car or even walking on a footpath or road  that needs to be considered and appropriately and safeley managed.'
