Can I wear glasses in the VR headset?

If you need glasses to see clearly, you can wear your glasses inside the VR headset.

Putting on and removing the headset

To put an Oculus Go headset on over your glasses:

  1. Loosen the side and top straps on your headset.

  2. Starting from the front, put your headset on over the top of your glasses.

  3. With the headset on your head, tighten the side straps and then the top strap to secure the headset.

To put a Pico G2+ headset on over your glasses:

  1. Loosen the side straps on your headset. If necessary, remove the inner top strap to make the fit a little looser. Make sure to retain the inner strap.

  2. Starting from the front, put your headset on over the top of your glasses

  3. With the headset on your head, tighten the side straps to secure the headset.

To remove the headset while wearing glasses:

  1. Loosen the side and/or top straps.

  2. With both hands, pull the headset forward and then take it off.

Wide frames

Oculus Rift headsets can accommodate glasses with frames up to 142mm wide and 50mm high. Oculus Go and Pico headsets can accommodate glasses with slightly smaller frames but can be enlarged with the addition of a spacer. Contact Strivr Support to order.

NOTE: If your glasses don't fit in the headset or the lenses of your glasses touch the headset lenses, we recommend you take off your glasses while using your headset or consider using prescription lenses, like these for the Oculus Go.

Bifocals

Although single-focus glasses work better in VR, you can use the VR headset with bifocals. To focus, you need to move your head more. If this becomes uncomfortable, remove your glasses and continue training.
