I wear glasses. Without these glasses I can't see very far. I need these glasses.
Do you think someone could either wear glasses while wearing the Oculus? Or are there enough lenses to use that someone like me could probably find a decent substitute for my glasses?
I would think occulus would be a problem for nearsided people, not farsided people (since the screen is right up in your face. Then again, Im not really adept at science shit, so I'm not really sure how it actually works or who it might present an issue to.
The lenses actually put the screen at infinite depth (this is basically anything 30m+ where the light is as good as parallel for government work) so that's why you get B lenses with the kit (for people who can't sharply resolve parallel light when their iris muscles are totally relaxed and so need a slight angle/the screen to be closer). This also means you don't get eyestrain from using them as your muscles (that change the shape of the iris) are relaxed because that's natural for focus at infinity.
I got my DK2 recently and have ok but not great vision (I wear glasses to have great vision because we have the technology so why wouldn't I want 20:12 vision) and have found the B lenses are better for me (I can use the A lenses and wouldn't complain if that was the only option but it's not as good as with the Bs in). The reason why Oculus recommend contact lenses is that the further away from your eyes the lenses in the headset are, the lower the FoV you get so if you make enough space for glasses then you'll lose some peripheral vision and have a less than ideal experience.
