One of the reasons why VR games and experiences cause headache and nausea is because headsets’ displays can’t optimize images for your eyes. A team of Stanford scientists seek to change that by developing VR displays that can adjust how images are shown based on your age and any other existing condition.

“Every person needs a different optical mode to Scientists   get the Stanford  best possible experience in VR,” lead researcher Gordon Wetzstein explained.For example, a lot of older people have a harder display  time focusing on objects close to them than younger people do.

Since the main current displays problem with  is that they  Stanford Scientists  make it eyes to focus difficult for your on one point due to , the prototypes were designed to their proximity to your face solve d The isplay  the issue. researchers have already begun testing software fixes and two Stanford  different types of hardware options.

Both of them incorporate an eye-tracking technology to Scientists  figure out where you’re display looking.One of them uses liquid lenses that can be adjusted by squeezing a dial, Stanford  while the other works like binoculars and moves the display screen back and forth.

But it can’t help you with, say, astigmatism.At the moment, Scientists  the prototypes can only help you if you are nearsighted, farsighted or presbyopic,  The researchers Stanford   say this is only the display beginning, though, and they’re hoping their “research findings Scientists   [can] guide these developments in the industry.”
