I'm considering purchasing the Quest system but I can only see in one eye.

Does anyone know if you need two eyes to fully appreciate and enjoy the experience including the 3D aspect?
Thank you

Just tried with one eye closed (shooting, racing).  It works, just a little narrower field of view.

I have both congenital blindness in one eye, and deafness in one ear.  VR is just like IRL, except that with the prescription lens inserts, I don't need to wear glasses.  Now, if only someone could please develop a CROS audio driver, for the headset.

I'm an eye doctor and I have a crossed eye - it's not blind, but my brain ignores it to prevent double vision....so I can't appreciate 3D movies and I don't have *stereoscopic* depth perception that most people have.  Stereoscopic is the best kind of depth perception, but you are unable to see that IRL or in VR.  But you *DO* have depth perception.  If you are looking at two objects and can tell if one is closer than the other, then by definition, you have depth perception.  It's just not as nice as the way 2-eyed people perceive depth.  But as another poster said, it will be the same as the way you see in your normal life - handicapped relative to a fully-sighted person, but you can definitely enjoy VR!

One eyed people might also rely more on the blurring of objects due to different focus at different distances. This is something that VR misses for everyone at this point.

I only have one eye and play most games. I just move around to see. This is not working for Deep Diving VR Platinum Edition.

I just wish my wife would turn a blind eye with all my paypal charges, lol!  Sorry, bad taste.
