  1. I think I might pick up some VR Opticians. I got a Rift S for christmas and me wearing my glasses caused their lenses to get scratched so I had to go out and get a new set. Hopefully they'll protect the lenses and allow me to see.

  2. Hi , I’m confused . My optician will not give me my pupil distance which is needed for the online form to order vr lenses . They say because all glasses are different . Have you any advice as to whether the centre of lenses ( for my pupil distance is different for different types of frames ) as different glasses the centre pupil distance may change ? Thanks in advance

  3. the occulus rift has a diff way of fitting the lenses.
    They come in a frame like glasses and u just slot them in by taking off the face pad clipping them into the same slot the face pad goes into then putting the face pad back on.
    They dont fit over the lenses like the 2 u showed do. so a lot easier to take off and put on.

    might be cause the lenses on the rift have no way to clip those types on lenses on to them cause the padding around them covers the edges of the lenses. for the rift the W DMO ones r probably the best but come in a bag instead of a proper case. the other company u mentioned does their as clip over the lenses like the index and quest does which wont work on the rift.

  4. Regarding the Widmo lens protectors you show. Do they not only protect the lenses when in transit but also clip on the lenses when the lenses are in the headset therefore protecting the lenses when in-situ?
    If so then that's a plus over the VROptician ones that don't have this.
    I had the VROpticians for my Rift and was happy with the quality of them. But towards the end of their two years of life, (new prescription) they started to become loose in the headset and would pop off, if say, I needed to scratch my nose whilst wearing the headset. TBH I was taking them out, although not on a regular basis, as friends always wanted to try VR out.
    Good video BTW

  5. Very helpful! Question: I have really bad eyes with THICK lenses. Sounds like you do too. Did you notice any problems with lens thickness? I noticed Widmo has a "high index" product that reduces the thickness, and VRoptician doesn't seem to have something similar.

  6. Hey just a heads up for anyone thinking of getting the WidmoVR lenses. I live in the US and a few weeks after buying them I got a "duty and tax" invoice from FedEx to pay an additional $32 as part of the international customs stuff since these ship from Poland. I wasn't expecting to receive a bill for half the cost of the lenses. But the lenses are great.
