How to Use Prescription Lenses for Virtual Reality with PSVR

Today’s PSVR headset is one of the most appreciated consumer hardware products out there because it offers immersion as deep and immersive as it gets, but with so many eye targets available and design idiosyncrasies that make some people feel nauseous, can you use prescription lenses safely? What are the steps to making sure these lenses are safe for all users?

A Brief Overview of VR Technology

Depending on what type of virtual reality device you’re using, you may need prescription lenses to view the content. A PSVR is a type of virtual reality headset that uses a PSVR prescription lens insert with a built-in display. To transfer your real-world eyes onto the virtual world, PSVR controllers and head-mounted displays use specially built optics.

However, not everyone can or wants to use prescription lenses for VR viewing. Many people find that prescription lenses make VR more difficult, if not impossible, to use. PlayStation support recommends trying out a few different types of the lens before settling on one that works well with your eyes. And while it’s possible to use other types of lenses with PSVR, they generally don’t work as well – and may even cause some problems. That’s because PSVR relies on specific equipment and software to create the best VR experience possible. 

Adding Prescription Lenses to Your PSVR Set Up

If you want to use prescription lenses with your PlayStation VR headset, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, make sure your glasses fit comfortably over the lenses on the virtual reality headset. Second, be sure to have all of the necessary prescription paperwork handy in case you need to show it to the PlayStation VR retailer when purchasing a necessary adaptor. Finally, follow these simple steps to add prescription lenses to your PSVR experience: 

1. Open up PlayStation VR and switch the display setting to “Desktop” Mode. This will let you view the images on your television screen rather than through the virtual reality headset. 

2. Head over to the Settings menu on your PlayStation 4 and select System Configuration. 

3. Select Display and make sure that “Customize Image” is turned on. 

4. On the left side of the Customize Image window, under Devices, you will see an entry for PSVR. Click on this and select Prescription Lenses from the options that appear. 

5. On the right side of the Customize Image window, locate and click on the Display Settings button next to PSVR Picture Size.

How VR Causes Flashes and Blurriness

When you are using prescription lenses with VR, the lenses can cause flashes and blurry images. There are a few things that you can do to reduce these issues. 

First, make sure that you have the correct size lenses for your PSVR head-mounted display (HMD). Second, be sure to adjust the focus of your lens to get the clearest image possible. Finally, try to avoid looking directly at bright light sources while wearing your VR headset.

How can prescription lenses help with these problems?

Prescription lenses can help you with a few problems when using virtual reality. They can correct your vision, making it easier to see in virtual reality. Additionally, they can make it easier to see in darker environments and focus on specific parts of the screen. This can be especially useful for games that require an intense focus on targets or objects. 

And if you’re like most people, you probably don’t have any prescription lenses lying around your house. But don’t worry, there are a lot of ways to use prescription lenses with your PSVR.

First, you can try using a magnifying glass with your PSVR. This will give you a small window in which to see what’s on the screen. However, this method is not very effective and is difficult to use.

Second, you can get an adjustable PlayStation VR headset from an online store or a reputable retailer. This will let you choose the size of the lens that attaches to the headset. This is much more effective at making the image clear, but it will also increase the amount of time needed to get used to the virtual reality experience because it takes some time to adjust to having different-sized lenses.

The difference between seeing through an HMD and a PSVR

Prescription lenses are essential for virtual reality (VR) because they enable users to see what is in front of them while wearing an HMD. PSVR requires a slightly different type of lens, known as an S-type because it has two screens that divide the image horizontally. An S-type lens helps correct the unnatural sideways view in VR.

PSVR users should follow the same general steps for using prescription lenses with PSVR as they would with any other HMD. First, make sure that your eyes are properly examined and that you have the correct prescription lenses. Second, fit the PSVR headset over your head and adjust it until it feels comfortable. Third, insert your prescription lenses into the PlayStation VR headset’s lens port. Fourth, press the seagrass on either side of the lens ports to secure the lenses in place. Fifth, sit down in VR and look around.
