The top-requested Google Glass improvement is now a reality, as Google unveils its plan for prescription Google Glass frames.

Available Monday at the Google Glass Web site, prescription frames for the Internet-enabled headset cost $ 225, in addition to the $ 1,500 entry fee to the Explorer program. Google is adding four titanium frame styles — Bold, Curve, Thin, and Split — and two new tinted shade styles — Active and Edge — to the mix. The tinted shades will cost $ 150.
