Must-Have Accessories For Oculus Quest 2 – VR Wave Prescription Lenses

The Oculus Quest 2 is one of the most popular VR headsets out there. Between its amazing built quality, fantastic performance, comfortable wearability and, of course, very affordable price, this VR Headset has become more and more popular with gamers (and casual users) all over the world, with no signs of stopping anytime soon. Even though Oculus Quest 2 is an amazing VR headset in itself it does not mean that the lenses that come pre-installed are right for every single user, particularly for those who need prescription glasses.

Wearing Prescription Glasses On Oculus Quest 2

For a long time now, VR has been a bit of a headache for those of us who need glasses in order to properly see the world. The Oculus Quest 2 lenses are not specialized for those who have eyesight problems or complications and so, it becomes very complicated to fully enjoy the beautiful virtual worlds that play out in these VR headsets. One of the most common things that people who have to wear glasses do when trying out Oculus Quest 2 is to actually wear their glasses while wearing the VR headset however, that is definitely not the way to do it.

When it comes to wearing prescription glasses alongside Oculus Quest 2, there are quite a few complications that might come to the surface. Naturally, wearing such a hefty piece of tech on your head while trying to balance it out with your glasses is not ideal in the slightest.

What Problems Can Arise?

One of the most obvious and clear issues that can arise when wearing prescription glasses alongside your Oculus Quest 2 is comfortability. VR headsets are designed to be comfortable so you can immerse yourself in the virtual world a lot more easily and efficiently. Wearing prescription glasses while having such a headset on your head can be incredibly uncomfortable. These headsets often weigh down on the head (no matter how light they are) which, combined with having to hear glasses can truly make for some very uncomfortable gaming sessions.

Another (and perhaps the most important) unpleasant aspect of having to wear prescription glasses on your Oculus Quest 2 is that these might actually scratch your glasses’ lenses, permanently damaging them. As you are moving around and playing your VR game, it is only natural that the VR headset might move a little bit with your own motion. While moving would not be a problem if you were using the glasses on their own, the fact that you have another pair of lenses (and plastic) so closely in front of them can definitely make it so sharp or hard edges scratch your lenses.

As we’ve mentioned before, there is absolutely no benefit that could come from wearing your prescription glasses at the same time as you’re wearing your Oculus Quest 2 headset, however, there is a much more efficient and simple way to be able to see your VR worlds as clear as you see with your glasses on. VR Wave prescription lenses are specially designed to solve the problem that has been plaguing the VR space for so many years now.

Blue-Light Filter

Blue light is another very important aspect to consider when purchasing prescription lenses for your Oculus Quest 2 VR Headset and VR Wave has you covered!

What Is Blue Light?

Blue light is a type of light ray that is commonly emitted by electronic devices, including the Oculus Quest 2! Under prolonged exposure, blue light can be quite detrimental to one’s eyes, possibly decreasing contrast which can lead to digital eye strain (with its symptoms being sore or irritated eyes, difficulty focusing, etc). Blue light can also affect the biological clock, disrupting sleep schedules, which can be very detrimental in the long term.

VR Wave Blue Light Filter

Luckily, VR Wave has you covered when it comes to protecting your eyes from blue light. Their blue light filter can reduce the side effects of blue light as well as the direct impact that it might have on your eyes!

When protecting your eyes, it is important to make the right choice and VR Wave definitely offers the right solutions so you can enjoy your Oculus Quest 2 VR Headset to its full capabilities!
