Houston, TX, Dec. 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- An annual patient appreciation day will include an exciting preview of Google Glass technology for Vision Corner patients in Houston. All doctors, staff and patients are invited to Vision Corner's Post Oak location on Friday December 13, 2013 to witness a presentation, try the technology for themselves, and learn more about the future of eye care as it might be influenced by Google Glass.
Vision Corner has served the Houston community for more than 24 years, providing comprehensive eye care and expertise. Dr. Sophia W. Barnes, optometrist, owner and CEO of Vision Corner, is very excited to offer this opportunity to Vision Corner patients. Dr. Barnes and her staff see how the impact of this event will be unique in the medical community. "We are the first medical practice to show Google Glass to our patients. This is the beginning of the future in this area. The tipping point," Dr. Barnes said.
Adding to the excitement is the fact that Vision Corner will be carrying Google Glass Rx once it becomes available. Google Glass in its current form is not an ideal solution for individuals who require a prescription to see clearly. By incorporating prescription lenses into the Google Glass design, the technology will be more accessible to the visually impaired.
While presenting and giving patients the opportunity to experience Google Glass will be the highlight of this patient appreciation day, patients and their pets will also be able to take a photo with Santa Claus.
Dr. Barnes added, "I feel honored that Google has chosen our office as an Explorer for Google Glass. I feel greatly that this technology will enhance the world."
Vision Corner has two locations in Houston, TX and can be reached at 5000 Westheimer Suite 590 Houston, Texas 77056. For more information, visit www.visioncorner.com or call 281-799-0031.
