Zenni Optical, the world’s leading online eyewear retailer, today announced a partnership with Meta to serve as the provider of VR prescription lens inserts for the Meta Quest 3 headset that officially begins pre-order today.

As part of the “Made for Meta” accessory program, Zenni VR Prescription Lenses for Meta Quest 3 are custom-built for the Meta Quest 3 and deliver a comfortable, seamless experience that affordably unleashes the power of VR for the 66% of American adults who require corrective eyewear.

The need for corrective lenses continues to rise with the American Academy of Ophthalmology estimating that nearly half of Americans will be nearsighted by 2030.

“We believe that everyone should have access to high-quality, affordable eyewear, including the amazing, immersive experience that VR delivers,” said David Ting, Global CTO & General Manager at Zenni Optical. “We’re thrilled to partner with Meta in order to optimize the Meta Quest 3 experience, at an affordable price, for those who need corrective lenses.”

Lightweight, affordable, easy to install, and tailored to every user’s individual prescription, Zenni’s VR Prescription Lenses deliver an enhanced viewing experience without the hassle of glasses and start at $49.99. Zenni’s lenses include an oil-resistant coating ($9.99 value), and anyone pre-ordering lenses by October 10 will receive free shipping in the U.S.

Zenni VR Prescription Lenses for Meta Quest 3 will be available in the U.S., Canada, UK and Japan on October 10, 2023 with pre-order available now.
