Prescription lenses available for Playstation VR 2
Following on from prescription lenses for other VR headsets, VR Optician offers slim lens inserts for the Playstation VR 2.
The halo design of the Playstation VR 2 offers significantly more room for corrective eyeglasses than other VR headsets. But if you're looking for a more elegant way to play in virtual reality and don't want the hassle of re-adjusting or the risk of lens scratches, VR Optician has a well-designed alternative.
Prescription lens inserts for the Playstation VR2 (review) with premium lenses from Carl Zeiss Vision are now available from the official store. Users simply place them on top of the VR headset's lenses. According to VR Optician, the Playstation VR2's advanced eye-tracking will not be affected.
Prescription lenses for the Playstation VR 2
The lenses of the inserts offer a scratch- and impact-resistant hard coating, an anti-reflective coating, and a water- and dirt-repellent surface. The price for a pair starts at $69 but full price varies depending on the prescription.
The dimensions are designed for comfort, with the height kept as low as the Fresnel lenses allow. There is also a generous cutout in the nasal area, as there is very little space between the lenses on the PS VR2.
Alternatively, single adapters are available for either the left or right eye. There are also non-prescription Plano lenses that only protect the VR headset. For an extra charge, you can also get protection against blue light rays (Zeiss DuraVision BlueProtect).
When ordering, it is important that customers have their distance readings ready - i.e. the readings from their everyday glasses, not the readings from their reading or PC glasses. Instructions in the store explain which values from the eyeglasses prescription should be entered on the order form. Delivery begins in two weeks.
