VR Lens Labs lens frame

If you bought the VR Lens Labs lenses and are disappointed with the fit, you might like to have a look at this frame - which a chap on the Oculus forum recommended:

I ordered mine a week ago - they arrived today and are up to the job - far more than the crappy Lens Labs frame - such as it is.

This is how it comes:

The card is okay, but my frame had dropped out of the gap and was a little mis-shapen, but no biggy.

Here, with lenses fitted, after careful removal from the Lens Labs ‘frame’:

The faceplate is then removed and the frame put in place (it’s loose at this point):

And then the faceplate - in my case a custom one from the same Lab shop - is carefully replaced:

Advantages:

1> the lens is held in place flush with the Rift lenses
2> it’s far more secure than the originals, though there is some very small amount of movement
3> Very easy to clean, without having to remove anything or worry about it dislodging the lenses

Instead of starting a new thread about Rift prescription lenses, I thought I might as well just post in this one. Hope thats ok with you @Brix ?

I ordered these 3D printed lens frames printed by a local 3Dhubs printer some time ago, and a pair of prescription glasses from Zennioptical, all inside about $50 I think.

It’s pretty easy to put together, you only need a tiny screwdriver to take apart the Zenni glasses, and a markerpen to mark the orientation of the lenses.
Oh, and a small file. I had to grind a bit of material from the bridge of the frames, in order not to permanently activate the proximity sensor in the Rift.
Other than that, I find the Rift / lens frame fit is pretty good, and while the lenses feel kind of loose in the frames they seem to stay in place just fine.

by all means

I’d been looking for somewhere to post the info myself, so we could make this the semi-official “Headset add-on” thread :slightly_smiling_face:
