Prescription lenses for Snapchat Spectacles start at $99

Prescription lenses for Snapchat Spectacles start at $99. Science & Technology World

Snapchat's video-recording Spectacles are super cool, but for folks who need prescription glasses they're just another tech accessory that they can't wear comfortably. Until now. The fine people who made prescription lenses for Google Glass at Rochester Optical will do the same for the ghostly wearable. Pricing starts at $99 for normal lenses, but pricing goes up for fancy options. High-index lenses are physically stronger and help slim down any Coke-bottle prescriptions, but they'll run you $149. Polarized and photochromic options cost $200. That's in addition to the $130 for Spectacles themselves, mind you.

As Mashable reports, you'll have to place an order for the glasses and have them shipped directly to Rochester's facilities. From there the company makes custom-fit lenses based on your prescription. And that's where the devil resides: a note to opticians says that prescription total power can't exceed -5 diopters. So if you're blind as a bat like me, even this service might not be any help.
