According to a Wall Street Journal report, Google is working with VSP Global to bring Glass to optometrists’ offices. We have learned from sources close to Google, however, that Glass does not currently have any partnership with VSP (yet). So while the two companies may be exchanging ideas, as the WSJ reports, no formal relationship between the two companies as been established so far.
A Google Spokesperson provided us with the following statement:
“We have said for some time that we are working to bring Glass prescription frames to our Explorers and we’ve created prototypes that members of the Glass team are actively testing. Beyond that we don’t comment on rumor or speculation.”
VSP is a U.S.-based group that provides vision benefits and services to over 60 million people. The company works with a network of 29,000 doctors and also owns Marchon Eyewear and Altair Eyewear, which design and manufacture eyewear.
