I've used a VR headset a couple of times and each time I was told that my glasses wouldn't be an issue. Which was incorrect. My glasses are probably just too big or something.

But it got me thinking: would it be possible in principle to have a VR headset where you plug in your prescription (or maybe just turn a knob or something, which sounds easier) and have it correct for your eyesight, making your glasses unnecessary?

@monorail mine fit into an Oculus Rift but i keep getting smudges on them in the process, and it turns out nothing gives you a headache quite like smudged glasses in VR 😫

@VyrCossont For me, the goggles put pressure on the left lens, pressing it directly into my eye. Played pretty much the whole time with that eye closed.
