    Yep, after my blood boiled a little bit down i put this already into my amazon basket. Prescription lenses are incoming too, hopefully to increase the comfort and to correct my ipd of 32,5/33,5 besides the lensprotection, too.

    This should not happen with an actual product, it seems this problem is already known since 3 or 4 years. Why did they not put a protective coating onto the lenses? Why did they not put a big red warning sign into the package? DO NOT WEAR GOOGLES IN THIS GOOGLES!

    I've used glasses in my Rift for years, my son does too, never had a problem nor scratches.

    I wear glasses in the rift too and have no issue with the original or with the S.  The original left little space between both types of lens, but the S just needs sliding to 'close enough' - if the lenses are in contact there is likely to be mutual damage.

    I think of this issue more as a for glasses wearing customers fundamental design flaw that is already known. A design flaw that could have easily eliminated in this revision with a protective coating or a border spacer around the lenses which could prevent the plane of a glasses lens to come into contact with the tip of the dome of the fresnel lens.

    Nonetheless: I will give Polywatch a try and lenses with prescription are already ordered from WidmoVR. Wish me luck!
    I hope there is no type of coating on that lens dome, just the same as the old rift lenses.

    If you have a Rift S or Quest, I've been using these magnetic lens prescription adapters as they have totally changed my VR experience comfort wise, no more scratches or fog. Easy to remove if you're sharing with other users as the wife and kid have perfect eyesight. They are half the price of competitors WidomoVR, VR Optician and 3D printed just like the rest of them. All you need are these magnetic adapters https://www.etsy.com/listing/710848026/oculus-quest-rift-s-magnetic and $9.95 prescription lens from Zenni

    When wearing glasses I have my Eye Relief at the farthest position. While giving up some of the fov, this also prevents scratches.

    However, I've also recently applied lens protectors (Healing Shield 43mm), and now I can bring the display closer via the Eye Relief.

    I just repaired my Quest's right lens with PolyWatch...the stuff really works. :)

    Before...you see the scuffs in the middle

    Just a dab'll do ya

    And after...

    Looks a bit discoloured and blurry, but I think that's just my phone's camera, and me not having the steadiest of hands.The scuff is definitely gone though. I did 2 minutes in either direction with the supplied cloth, then another 2 minutes in either direction with a VR Cover cloth. Got that idea from a youtube video, but he also suggested using another cloth again, with glass cleaner before the final buff. I didn't have glass cleaner. :P
