CaTaPulT Posted May 8, 2017 Share Posted May 8, 2017 Hi everyone. Here's my story. When I first got my Vive, I had read somewhere that getting the Vive lenses replaced was quite expensive so I wanted to protect them since I do wear eye glasses. I ordered a set of "Hyperkin HTC Vive VR Lens Protectors", Once I got these, I tried installing them, they are different from Cell phone protectors in the way they stick to the lenses instead of just relying on static. I could NOT get these things to go onto the Vive lenses without huge air bubbles since these protectors are flat and the Vive lenses are curved. I did however use the protectors for the front Vive camera (comes in this kit)... needless to say, this was a total waste of money. In my searches to protect my precious Vive lenses, I found this place "VR Lens Lab" and ordered the plain jane lenses "plano lenses" without any extra coatings (extra cost). I just got them today and am please to say these things work rather well, I was afraid of getting maybe a little extra glare from the space between the Vive lens and the VR Lens Lab lense but no extra glare has been seen yet, so far, it looks just like the inserts are not there. This company also makes prescription insert lenses for the Vive (Oculus and PSVR), you just put in your prescription information and they will make you a prescription Vive lens inserts so you don't need to wear glasses while wearing your Vive. I've heard mixed reviews online but so far with these Plano lenses (to protect my Vive lenses) I am impressed, next time I see a optomotrist for a new prescription, I may just order a prescription set of inserts. They are not cheap, I think they ended up costing me around the $70 (Canadian) mark but to protect my Vive lenses, I thought it was worth it. As I try it out some more in the next few days, I'll report back here if I come across any problems. Oh yeah, on some review sites, some people say that the inserts will pop out if you play with the IPD adjustment, I've had no problems with this and I have gone from 63.3 to a little over 70 IPD with the inserts staying put. Maybe the bad reviews were a older model and that one didn't stay put very well. Regards: Jack Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
