With the PSVR 2 release date just around the corner, we thought we’d find out if you can wear glasses with the PSVR 2, or if you’ll have to go in all Hellen Keller up in there.

The PSVR 2 is the long-awaited and honestly very impressive-looking follow-up to the original PSVR that was released all the way back in 2016. While the original PSVR was impressive for the time and had sales “far beyond expectations”, it was nonetheless limited, with the PlayStation Move controllers being particularly disappointing, amusing phallic shape notwithstanding.

Of course, after the release of the PS5, murmurings of the PSVR 2 started in earnest, with speculation about the release date, specs, and features continuing in spite of the PS5 being almost impossible to come by thanks to COVID-19 and the semiconductor shortage.

Thankfully, supply constraints around the console have eased just in time for the PSVR 2 to release on February 22nd 2023. Although the sales estimates have come in below expectations, there is still a lot of buzz around it, with people asking a lot of questions, including, ‘can you wear glasses with the PSVR 2?’ Luckily, we’re now in a position to answer this question.

Can you wear glasses with PSVR 2? Yes.

Sony’s official answer to this query is “Yes, PS VR2 was designed to accommodate players who wear glasses. However, some very wide or unusually shaped glasses may not fit.”.

However, now we’ve done a full PSVR 2 review, we can answer this question armed with first-hand knowledge. We can report that Sony’s aforementioned guidance is mostly correct. However, even pretty slim glasses were a bit of a tight squeeze, so it appears that Sony’s definition of ‘very wide or unusually shaped’ is different from ours.

So, yes, you can wear glasses with PSVR 2. Sony has designed the headset to have enough room to accommodate most pairs of glasses without issue.

So, all the hard-of-sight folks out there can breathe a sigh of relief, unless you habitually wear bulky ostentatious hipster nerd glasses, in which case you might have to buy a slimmer pair to enjoy the PSVR 2.


If you’re eager to know everything about the PSVR 2, you’re in luck, as we’ve written a lot of pages about the PSVR 2. For your convenience, we’ve listed it all below!
