    Drs Rahimy and Garg are now conducting further proof-of-concept tests to validate Google Glass as a teaching tool for opthalmology.

    Google Glass is currently unavailable, production having been stopped in January 2015 following a catalogue of complaints and concerns about this early model.

    Google has confirmed that version 2 is under development and has an expected launch date of this year.
