In the present day I publish a evaluation concerning the magnetic lenses for Meta Quest 2 bought by VR Rock, a Chinese language firm promoting equipment for VR headsets. Since I’ve no want for prescriptions, I’ve examined the anti blue gentle lenses with no prescription.
This has been one among my best unboxings ever: contained in the field, I’ve discovered numerous pluriballs, after which inside lastly a small case with the lenses inside. You possibly can watch all of it on this brief video right here beneath:
Establishing the lenses has been fairly straightforward following the tutorial on the VR Rock web site. Each lens ingredient consists by the lens itself, which has three little magnets round it, and the holder, which is one other round plastic object with the identical form because the lens however no glass inside, which has additionally three little magnets. All it’s a must to do is take one of many “empty” holders and push it in order that to make it stick across the lens of the Quest 2: if you hear a click on, it’s accurately caught across the Quest lens. Then it’s a must to do the identical with the opposite one, taking good care of placing the one with the “L” written on the left lens, and the one with the “R” round the appropriate lens. After you have got put in these two holders, you’ll be able to put the prescription lenses on them, and the little magnets will ensure that the lenses will keep in the appropriate place. You possibly can watch me putting in the prescription lenses within the following video:
As I’ve mentioned, the setup has been fairly straightforward, however I had some points putting in the holder of the appropriate lens on the Quest. I don’t know if the form was not completely right or if the fabric was not bending in the appropriate means, however it took me extra time than anticipated to make it “click on” by transferring the lens holder in each doable means. This has been a bit of drawback I discovered with my pair of VR Rock lenses. Fortunately, as soon as I made it snap, the holder was secure. However this subject left me the impression that the manufacturing was not a premium one.
I’ve made a video evaluation of those lenses, and you’ll watch it right here
…in any other case, as it’s custom of this weblog, hold studying for the standard textual evaluation!
As soon as I put in the lenses, I instantly tried my new modded Quest. And I’ve discovered precisely the identical issues that each one folks on-line describe about magnetic prescription lenses typically.
To start with, they make the lenses of the headset thicker. The holder and the lens contact all of the round area across the eye, so it’s strongly suggested so as to add a glass spacer to your headset, or chances are you’ll really feel an excessive amount of strain from the prescription lens in your eye and the encompassing space. Even eradicating the lenses and simply maintaining the holders nonetheless applies extra strain on the highest of the nostril, as a result of it makes the circle of the lens of the headset a bit wider. This strain on the attention is a standard drawback of this sort of lenses, and I’ve to say that’s all the time good to maintain this in thoughts if you purchase this sort of accent. I believe the strain is bearable, however anyway diminishes the general consolation of the gadget.
Even worse than that, there may be the issue that for the reason that magnets usually are not robust sufficient (as a result of they’re little), the lens can barely transfer on prime of the holder. You possibly can see this within the video right here beneath:
Whenever you transfer your head throughout a VR motion sport, additionally the headset barely wobbles in your head, and this additionally makes the lenses have small actions across the holder whereas they contact your face. Since these lenses contact immediately your facial bones due to the thickness, you have got the feeling of one thing barely transferring in your bones. It’s a really bizarre sensation, I haven’t appreciated in any respect. So, if you happen to put on these lenses, make additionally certain to safe properly the headset to your head utilizing an applicable strap to make sure that it doesn’t vibrate that a lot.
Anti blue gentle impact
As I’ve mentioned, I don’t want prescriptions for my eyes, so I requested the corporate to simply ship me some anti blue gentle lenses.
I truthfully don’t know what to say about this anti-blue gentle function. If I make some gentle (e.g. the daylight) replicate on the lens, I see that the reflexes are blue-ish or green-ish and this reveals that really the lens displays away some quantity of blue gentle. However once I put the headset with these lenses on, I wasn’t capable of discover any distinction from earlier than. So I began making some exams and properly, as you’ll be able to see on this video, the distinction within the ensuing picture of a blue-ish ingredient will not be that massive:
I made additional exams, and the result’s that sure, they make the general show of the headset seem as barely much less luminous, and also you discover that particularly with the white colour which turns into barely much less sharp. So some filtering of blue gentle occurs, however it’s a fairly light-weight one. Whereas carrying them I had no noticeable impact of getting much less eye pressure, however truthfully these are additionally issues that are tough to judge.
The lenses are supplied with a cute carrying case. It’s inflexible, however lined with cloth, and inside there are two small pockets to hold the lenses with you safely. It’s easy, however I appreciated it quite a bit: it’s small and chic, in my view.
Availability… and a bit of present

I’ve combined emotions about VR Rock prescription lenses. I truthfully assume that if you happen to don’t want prescriptions, in all probability there’s no compelling want to purchase them only for the blue gentle filtering function. The discount of the consolation they trigger for his or her thickness and their vibrations will not be definitely worth the small quantity of blue gentle they filter.
In case you want prescriptions, all the pieces adjustments, although. I do know from my buddies that carrying glasses if you put on a headset just like the Quest 2 may be very uncomfortable,and in addition dangers damaging the glasses themselves. Magnetic prescription lenses, even when they don’t seem to be good, provide a way more snug expertise than glasses, so they’re definitely worth the buy. You resolve what to do based mostly in your scenario.
At this level, I think about you might be questioning how these lenses stack compared with related merchandise from WIDMO, VR Lens Lab, and different ones. I truthfully can’t make any comparability with the opposite lenses available on the market as a result of I’ve tried no different prescription lenses for Quest 2. The impression I had from attempting these lenses and watching the evaluation movies of the opposite ones, is that these ones are in all probability not probably the most premium you’ll find available on the market, however they’re anyway okay.
