    Are you long sighted, or short sighted? If you wear glasses for long distance, then you shouldn't need to wear them with a VR device , as the image is very close to your face (even if it tries to trick your brain into believing its further away).

    AT&T, Sprint and Verizon say yes. T-Mobile doesn't mention it Samsung says it has Focal Adjustment to cover Near-Sighted and Far-Sighted eyes. So I'd say yes you can use them with or without eyeglasses. Just don't use them on Public Transportation.

    I'm near sighted and when I tried the VR unit at Best Buy, I could see with and without my glasses.
