Introduction: 3d Glasses for Mobile When Wearing Already Glasses

Picture of 3d Glasses for Mobile When Wearing Already Glasses

I purchased this cheap 3d glasses for mobile phone, but I can't use them because I am wearing allready glasses.

My lens strength is +1,5 diopter.

Without my own glasses the picture is completely unsharp :(

The model is from Ritech 3d and the price is 18$

Step 1: Closeup Lenses

I used 2 Closeup lenses +8 with 52mm for fotography

Step 2: Fixing the Close Up Lenses

I glued them inside the VR glasses, with the thread face down, using hotglue

Step 3: Test

Now it works.

The picture is now sharp. Another positive effect is that the picture is now min. 2 times bigger.

It's now like sitting in the first row in a cinema and enjoying an 3D movie. :)

This is a great fix, but I have one that's cheaper.

It's not your glasses; The focal length of the lenses is 1/2 inch farther than the case. A local photo store is selling the magnifying lenses on your post for $48 each (Yikes!).

My simple solution was to go to a local Goodwill and get a pair of reading glasses (+2.25) and use them instead. Works like a charm without breaking the bank (especially since the headset only cost $12).

Great solution. I had this 2 lenses laying arround for another project.

I will try this solution.
