I've used a VR headset a couple of times and each time I was told that my glasses wouldn't be an issue. Which was incorrect. My glasses are probably just too big or something.

But it got me thinking: would it be possible in principle to have a VR headset where you plug in your prescription (or maybe just turn a knob or something, which sounds easier) and have it correct for your eyesight, making your glasses unnecessary?

@monorail the optics of a VR headset put everything at infinity, so if you're far sighted you shouldn't need your glasses.

However, if you're nearsighted, you'll still need corrective optics; software can't adjust the focus plane. If memory serves, the rift has a slot for a prescription insert, but getting such things made is pricy
