Although both the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive have enough space to wear glasses while the headset is mounted on your face, it isn’t an ideal solution. Some have reported the headsets tearing the glasses from their face and others just don’t like the larger gap between screen and eye. Fortunately VR Lens Lab is here to help, with prescription lenses that can be fitted to either major headset.
VR Lens Lab is a collaboration between VR Cover – the guys who made the washable covers for Rift and Vive – and Gauss Eyewear and together they’ve produced clip on frames for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, with plans to offer prescription lenses in the near future.
Another option for glasses wearers, will be to order the lenses from their local optician, as VR Lens Lab will provide all necessary information required to procure them. Prescriptions from +6.00 dpt right through -6.00 dpt are supported, so the whole gamut is covered.
It may even be possible to put together lens frames designed for a more powerful prescription, but for that VR Lens Lab asks that you get in touch for a custom quote.
