Has anybody here tried using progressive lenses with Glass? I tried Glass over my progressives and it seemed fine, but of course wearing Glass over a separate pair of glasses is very ugly. When I got the prescription frames, I discovered they were apparently incompatible with progressive lenses (as well as bifocals), or at least that's what the local stores said. This greatly limits how convenient Glass is for me.

I recently saw the Wetley GGRX Adapter w/ Custom Multifocal Progressive Lenses for Google Glass advertised. Has anybody tried these? I am pretty squeamish about ordering expensive corrective lenses over the Internet and would welcome any feedback.

I got the Google Bold frames and had my progressive prescription put in them. They work extremely well. It was also a fun way to turn a $1500 purchase into a $2300 expense. But it's only money. If I didn't spend it on that I'd probably just waste it on food.

Thanks. I tried two local eyeglass chains and both said the "thin" Glass frames I have were incompatible with progressive lenses. Maybe the "bold" frames are different in that regard.

I have the split glass frames which aren't that different from the thin frames and it wasn't a problem at all. I did go to a doctor that was glass certified, not that I think that should make that much of a difference.

I went to two Glass approved optometrists and neither had an issue with a progressive in the thin frames.
