Meta Quest 3 Lenses

The Meta Quest 3 is the hot new thing in AR/VR headsets and it has one feature that'll be of real benefit to glasses wearers -- it supports prescription lens inserts. Zenni is the company providing them, via the Made for Meta accessory program, and you can preorder yours right now with a special offer sweetening the deal.

That offer means that you can now place an order for Meta Quest 3 lenses and pay $50 while getting a free oil-resistant coating included. That coating would normally cost an additional $10, and it's well worth having. It helps avoid getting fingerprints all over your new lenses and integrates an anti-reflective, water-resistant and anti-scratch coating, too.

These lenses are lightweight and surprisingly affordable, while installation is about as easy as can be. If you haven't heard of Zenni, it's a reputable provider, appearing near the top of our list of the best places to buy glasses online. The lenses are available for preorder right now and will start to ship on the same day as the headset, Oct. 10, with buyers in the US, UK, Canada and Japan all able to get involved. If you're picking up a new Meta Quest 3 and normally wear glasses, this might be one deal you can't afford to live without.

Zenni says that nearly half of Americans will be nearsighted by the time 2030 rolls around. And with lenses like these, there is no need to miss out on great AR/VR experiences anymore. Just make sure to input your prescription correctly when placing your order, otherwise they probably won't work so well.
