So… why should anyone ever need to wear glasses in VR?

[ad_1]

Another post asking about astigmatism made me think… Given that the image and focus length can all be changed (I assume) by the game/hardware actually outputting a different image.. Why can’t manufacturers/programmers include options that basically mimic having one’s glasses on? I mean, I get that the current lenses are “tuned” so that all programmers simply need to set the “camera” at a certain distance, and everything will be in focus…

But it seems like it should be a fairly straightforward mathematical equation to slightly alter the output image to match a person’s individual optical prescription, so that everyone can use any VR headset without glasses.

Maybe there is some limitation involved that prevents this. I’d be interested in getting a technical explanation if so, from one of the developers on the subreddit…

​

Thanks…
