How to fix PSVR 2 blurry or distorted images

In virtual reality (VR), images are crucial for creating a sense of immersion and presence in the virtual environment. However, if the images displayed on the PSVR 2 headset are blurry or distorted, it can ruin the sense of immersion and presence.

Instead of feeling like you're inside the game world, you may feel like you're watching the game world through a foggy or warped window. This can be frustrating and disorienting, and it can detract from the overall enjoyment of the game.


So, here are the steps you need to take to fix the PSVR 2 blurry or distorted images:

  • Hold down the button on the bottom right of the scope, and slide it towards and away from you until the image becomes clear. You may also need to adjust the angle of the headset to help improve the image.
  • Use the adjustment dial on the rear of the headband to tighten the headset to a secure fit.
  • With your PS VR headset still on, hold down the PS button on your controller until the Quick Menu appears, and select Adjust PlayStation VR > Confirm Your Position.

Hopefully, your images should be fine at this point. If the problem persists, setting your Eye-to-Eye Distance can help. On your console, go to Settings > Devices > PlayStation VR > Measure Eye-to-Eye Distance, and follow the on-screen instructions. Try this a few times until the image improves.
