    Zeiss Cinemizers have built in knobs for lense correction. No putting on additional components to adjust for your prescription. Very slick. Almost like adjust binoculors.

    Headplay goggles can be adjusted for vision correction as well, but they have their own separate issues.
    Far better is it to dare mighty things, even though checkered by failure; than to take rank with those who neither enjoy much or suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

    I use Trimersions because they fit over my glasses. There are others available that you can use without your glasses and they'll compensate.

    It would be nice to see all of these choices in one place to do comparisons and make informed choices. Same holds true for much of the other related gear such as cameras, video transmitters/receivers, antennas, etc. Can we have a thread or forum tab created to do this?

    I use Fatshark Aviators (don't know if this would work with eyecups) and I ground the lessens from an old pair of glasses down so they would fit in the little slots:

    Unless you're crazy near-sighted you shouldn't have a problem using the goggles without your glasses or a lens. I need glasses to see at a distance and I've used Fatsharks without my glasses. Since the screen is so close I didn't have any problems. You'll have more of an issue just getting used to having two screens so close to your face.

    What are you smoking? If I can't see anything without my glasses, why would I be able to see inside a pair of goggles?
