VR and glasses
« on: December 20, 2019, 10:10:05 AM »
I tried the occulus rift s today in the Microsoft store. Mind blown by what it can do. I did have problems with it being a little fuzzy for distance in one eye.

I have to wear glasses and have an astigmatism. Any other glass wearers out there have any feedback on which vr sets work bed with glasses and or dialing in the vision per eye?

Thanks

Oh, good question. I wear glasses for the same reason.

I had the same questions and I considered contacts but I don't have enough info as to focal length etc. so I decided to pass on contacts and went with "computer glasses" (focal length of about 30') with the smallest frames I could find and that works ok. The problem is with the Rift (my VR headset) in that it's resolution for reading text just sucks. I understand that the Rift S is an improvement but I'm not willing to plunk down another $400 just to find out. The option that I find most intriguing is headset lenses with prescription lenses but I haven't talked myself into trying that yet. Here are a couple of websites with more info:

I might have to look into this VR glasses thing... as a side business.  ^-^
