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 for some glasses users yes, for others no. think about all the different knobs they have at the prescription-tool-thing at the optometrist...


@t54r4n1 excellent point...

I know that I'm nearsighted and have a slight astigmatism, maybe one of those things could be corrected for but not the other?

I don't know a lot about eyes. Or light.
