Can you wear glasses in VR?

Virtual reality (VR) headsets became all the craze after they were released. While it’s been fun getting used to this new tech, it has proved a little more than problematic for the glasses-wearers of the world.

VR headsets sit snugly on your face with support straps on your temples and around your head. This can make it quite uncomfortable if you’re wearing glasses. You can also browse VR Wave for more information about virtual reality headsets.

How do you wear glasses in VR?

Before putting on the headset, make sure the straps are in the loosest setting. Then, slowly pull the straps to tighten around your head and glasses

You may notice that your glasses wedge into the foam padding. This is okay as it will help to hold your glasses in place. Although, make sure there isn’t any pressure that could cause your glasses to bend or break.

How can you make wearing glasses in VR more comfortable?

One way to combat this is to make sure the straps aren’t too tight around the side of your head and that you can comfortably get a finger underneath the straps.

Similarly, once you have the headset on and adjusted to your needs, try to push your glasses forward slightly using the temple tips. 

Throughout use, VR headsets can push your glasses back which causes pressure on your nose. Giving your glasses just a little more wiggle room can stop the nose pads or bridge of your glasses from irritating.
