Like many of us, my eye sight is crap. I often have to "squint" to read my monitor if I'm running any HD resolutions. anything farther than that, unless it's in big bold text, is unreadable. Normally, this isn't a problem (well, ok, it is), and I generally don't put much thought into getting glasses or contacts, though I've had both in the past (and they make a world of difference... at a price.)
However, Im trying to determine if I should go out of my way to get a new contact lens prescription specifically just for use with the Oculus Rift lenses. Right now, I use the C-cups... crystal clear, and I can use B-cups as well and their about as clear but with a little bit of a blur difference.
But I've been reading up that you really don't want to use C or B-cups unless you absolutely have to. That the best route is to get contacts, glasses, or laser surgery so you can use the A-cups. apparently it intensifies the sterecopic feeling and depth, and makes the world look "deeper" and things stand out more. And as you go down in lense cup lettering, this causes a decrease in stereoscopic visuals.
Just want opinions or someone to confirm this. I'd rather blow $250 on a delta six preorder (well, lets be honest, already have), or save it for the next rift or vRase headset protoypes, or put it towards Omni periphreals such as extra belts/shoes/whatever.... BUT, if it's worth the contact lenses and increased stereoscopic performance of the A-cups, guess I can put it down on a eye appointment and some contact lenses.
Fellow Rifters... your suggestions?
