1 week ago I bought the Oculus CV1 with the summer sale. Since the Customer version has been released I was wondering about glasses + rift and found very few informationm, I don't have very bad eyes but I have to use glasses when I'm watching something too close or too far away. I tried immediately to jump inside the vr without and the result was pretty bad. The image is blurry and after 20 min max I have to remove it cause my eyes get very tired and dry.
I was pretty scared of using glasses and scratch the lenses so I told to myself, let's check on internet first. After one week my investigation was pretty much useless cause I can find literally nothing more recent than summer 2016. 90% of the results are pre CV1 release and are of course not reliable. The only information that I managed to gather is that no screen protectors can be used due to the lenses curvature.
I strongly hope there is somebody out there that had the same doubts as me and managed to find some answers, so I will leave my doubts here and cross fingers :
- Is there really no way to protect the lenses from scratches (like the screen protectors used for phones)? I know that they could be used on dk1 and dk2... are we going backward instead of improving the quality of the product?
- Are the lenses easy to scratch while using glasses? (I already have a very small scratch that is not visible when using the googles and I was using no glasses, being super careful and using only the cloath included in the original box)
- Is there anything, apart from using contact lenses, that can be done to have a comfortable and safe experience?
- I've been able to find only this alternate solution so far https://vr-lens.eu/
but I can find no reviews, just a bunch of people saying that it might work. Do you know if they work well?
Thanks a lot for the help!
