Want to preorder +Project Glass glasses and not a developer? Google's accepting applications now, through Google+ or Twitter. Explain what you'd do if #ifihadglass in 50 words or less.

Dear mr. Heiting. I would really like to read your book. But I do have an urgent question: is there a possiblity to stop a patient with acute glaucoma from getting blind? His vision is only 5%. Is there a possiblity out there in the States or any other country?

Google says they'll make Google Glass available for prescription wearers later this year. It will be interesting to see whether multifocal wearers will be able to adapt to them, but I'm willing to try out the single-vision version. Sounds pretty cool!

Parag,  get your optometrist to fit her with some daily contact lenses. If she only uses them for swimming and disposes of them correctly, she shouldn't have a problem. Regards
