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?

This is a great idea and should in theory be possible right?

@imani In theory, but I don't know very much about either eyes or light so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Hopefully someone good with optics sees this and chimes in.
