It’s easy to modify your Oculus VR headset with prescription lenses


The Oculus-branded VR headset and other similar devices let you view 3D worlds, but they can be blurry and unsatisfying if you’re wearing glasses. Alternatively, you may be able to see well, but your glasses will prevent you from having a comfortable experience. Either way, you might want to fit prescription lenses into your helmet, and luckily there’s an easy way to do that. thanks to [tanvach].

To do this, use these 3D printed lens adapters. They use standard single vision lenses designed for the Zenni #550021 round spectacle frames, and let them fit perfectly into an Oculus Quest, Quest 2 or Rift S headset. [tanvach] provides instructions on how to order the lenses for your own prescription, and notes that the key is to get the anti-reflective coating to reduce glare. And, if you don’t want to print your own adapters, you can source some preprints In place!

Adapters are a great way to enhance your VR experience if you’re someone who typically relies on corrective lenses. Of course, it’s getting more and more popular to just DIY your own helmet these days too. If you have your own VR project underway, please let us know!
