Virtual reality is finally here! It’s a brave new world, but who wants to look into it through a blurry window? Comfort is important to being able to truly enjoy virtual reality experiences. Jay and the team of VR Cover have been working on making VR more comfortable since 2014, selling their virtual reality hygiene solution to thousands of VR enthusiasts, companies and developers.

We have teamed up with Peter (Pit) Marx who brings his lifetime of optical industry experience with Gauss Eyewear to this project and together we have created VR Lens Lab to bring your prescription lenses into your VR headset.

What Problem Does VR Lens Lab Solve? 

Right now, if users don’t wear contact lenses with their VR headsets, they are expected to somehow squeeze their glasses inside the unit. This can become uncomfortable when your temples come under sustained pressure from headset straps or when the nose pads of your glasses are pressed heavily against your face. In some cases the lens of the VR headset can rub against your glasses scratching both lenses. That is a big problem.

 With VR Lens Lab, we have created easy-to-use glasses for your headset that you can simply leave within the headset. It is virtual reality eyewear just not for you but your VR headset.

With our glasses for VR headsets, you can finally enjoy a full field of vision and protect your headset’s lenses from dust and scratches. You no longer have to wear glasses or contact lenses to enjoy virtual reality experiences with razor-sharp and super-crisp graphics.

Rewards

Prescription Lenses for Virtual Reality Headsets

Right now here on Kickstarter we only offer the glasses / adapters with or without plano (non rx) lenses to protect your VR headset lenses from dust and scratches.

We can not offer prescription lenses here on Kickstarter but after our campaign is over you can order them directly from us via http://vr-lens-lab.com or your local optician.

We can provide any prescription from +6.00 dpt to -6.00 dpt, and correct for things like astigmatism to give you whatever you need. If you have higher prescriptions, get in touch and we check what we can do for you.

We get a lot of questions right now so please give us a few days to respond.

All our lenses have our new VRMC coating and are scratch-resistant, super hydrophobic and anti-static which makes them really easy to clean.

We have developed the prototypes with Pit's 3D printer, and have already set everything up for production with high-quality moulds. Please join us on our journey to make virtual reality even more comfortable and enjoyable for everyone.

Risks and challenges

We are not new to this. We have been testing and experimenting the last 6 months to get this going and have lined up everything we need.

Doing the moulds takes a bit time but we have two great companies lined up who already did prototypes and are eager to get started.

Just like with our previous Kickstarter we want to be on time, because as Germans it makes us feel really uncomfortable being too late.

The June delivery for rewards is a pretty conservative estimation. Chances are we can do this faster.
