Prescription Lens Adapters

A Pimax Prescription Lens Adapter to my knowledge are pretty much non-existant for Pimax HMDs. If they’re is some available, Where? The main VR lens makers don’t sell them.

I own a 8K X and need some Adapters as I’m short-sighted. I don’t want to wear glasses as I’m really afraid of scratching the Pimax lenses.

Any lens adapter solutions out there for the comfort gasket?

I always use glasses with them, no problems, but I found this and ordered one for me https://www.thinoptics.com/thinoptics-readers-anti-fog-lenses-face-mask

If VRmust is still around they had some lens adapters for pimax.

Otherwise there are some community made 3dprintable solutions.

I own the VRMust prescription inserts, their solution takes up a fair amount of depth within the headset and resulted in a hard plastic edge pressed against the bridge of my (fairly standardly sized) nose. I then went with the VR FRames from VR Lens Lab instead. While they aren’t exactly a fashion piece, I now wear them whenever I’m at my PC and around the house more than my normal glasses. They are more comfortable with gaming headphones when in non-VR, and the blue light filter is great too.

Do the VR Frames fit inside the 8K X comfort kit and don’t scratch? @Plews They have enough clearance with the thinner gasket?

yes, very low profile, doesn’t impede on FOV, and they have a strap instead of arms, meaning they don’t interfere with headphones AND I use them for things like canoeing as I don’t have to worry about losing them when I take a dunk…

I use regular glasses with a strap to hold them back away from the lenses, I also have coated the lenses to make sure they are more protected.

These look really good! I think I’ll pick up a pair, they look good for wearing under snowboard goggles as well

I used this on my 5k Plus and 8KX after I scuffed my 5k plus with glasses (much closer than the 8KX) and I had to buff out the scuffs. This makes cleaning much easier (follow directions).

@Sidekick1 Thanks for sharing the coatings. There’s so many different types out there. I found a couple more with varying levels of price. What are the differences?

based on how many applications I believe — I have several friends who have also used the one I listed - all based on the same stuff pretty much.

How many applications was required with the type you used. @Sidekick1

I applied to my 5k Plus and 8KX once – but you could do more than one application if needed. I found one application worked just fine.
