Competitive advantage: With 40 years of experience in optics and lens technology, VR Lens Lab produces lenses op superior quality at a professional high-end lens lab using free-form technology.
Your benefit:  By cutting out the middleman we can offer an unrivaled package of quality lenses at very competitive prices.

Advanced Lens Technology

Field of View

Custom, Optimized, Maximized

With each step, the keyhole-effect is reduced, yielding a larger Field of View. By having direct access to a professional high-end lens lab, our advantage is your benefit. Select your desired Field of View to enjoy outstanding lens precision and the best possible VR experience. Our unique free-form technology is available for optimized and maximized options, with the latter offering the largest Field of View by minimizing the distance between the prescription lens and headset lens.
Depending on your prescription the thinnest adapter possible is selected.

Free-Form

Every lens influences the Field of View (FoV), mostly due to the distance between headset lens, prescription lens and eye. But also the prescription strength, thickness and lens surface play a major role in your VR experience.

Custom includes high quality lenses with best coatings but is the “curviest” of the three options, due to the manufacturing process. For e.g. the Quest and Quest 2 an adapter of 13mm height is required.

Our unique free-form technology has the biggest impact with the optimized and maximized options; featuring additional base curve adjustment. (see picture on the right) The latter offers the largest Field of View by minimizing the distance between the prescription lens and headset lens. For e.g. the Quest and Quest 2 a 9mm adapter is possible.

Free-form allows for a better distribution of prescription. Each step comes with more advanced algorithms expanding the crisp viewing area and enhancing it’s perimeter. (Within physical constraints, of course)

By having direct access to a professional high-end lens lab, our advantage is your benefit. Select your desired Field of View to enjoy outstanding lens precision and the best possible VR experience.

For free-form lenses we use Freecept, our own Freeform Remote Calculation Tool

Digital Light Protection

In our digital lives, our eyes are increasingly exposed to sources of harmful radiation that can cause eye strain and permanent damage. High Energy Visible (HEV) light is blue-violet to blue in color with  a wavelength of 400–500 nanometer (nm). It is often referred to as blue light or digital light. These wavelengths can pass through unprotected lenses and damage the retinal pigments in the back of your eyes. The blue light radiation emitted by digital device screens also interferes with your melatonin production and can diminish your sleep quality.
Digitial devices emit invisible magnetic interference which discomforts your eyes over time.
The Radiation Shield prevents eye fatigue and improves visual comfort.
With LightCap420, the light is filtered below 420nm, reducing eye strain and bringing more comfort to your eyes.

Prolonged exposure to blue light in VR or from a computer screen can cause eye strain. Unlike so-called ‘video game glasses’ that only shift the color spectrum with yellow tinted lenses, Blueguard VR helps to protect your eyes by reflecting some of the harmful light without affecting the true color of images.
