Just like any piece of technology, the Oculus Quest 2 isn't immune to your typical wear and tear, so we'll take a look at what you can do to get lens replacement.
The most common reasons for getting Quest 2 replacement lenses are either they've gotten scratched, or you need prescription lenses. You might even need prescription lenses because your VR headset's lenses are getting scratched.
So, in this article, we'll talk about where you can get prescription lenses, how to install them, and other methods of keeping your lenses intact.
Oculus Quest 2 replacement lens
Sadly, you can't replace the lenses on your Quest 2.
Oculus Quest 2 lenses are not sold separately and Meta doesn't offer any out-of-warranty repair services either, so your best bet would be to try your best to prevent any scratches or cracks.
But like we've said, the wear and tear from using something is inevitable. One very common cause for getting scratches on your Quest lenses is if you're wearing glasses with the VR headset.
In that case, using prescription lenses would be a great help.
How to get prescription lenses for Oculus Quest 2
Wearing glasses while using a VR headset is not only uncomfortable, but it can also lead to scratches on your lens. Luckily, there are plenty of prescription lenses you can buy online.
A popular option for Quest 2 users is to get VirtuClear from framesdirect.com as a sort of Oculus replacement lens.
Once you've received your prescription lenses, installing them is quite simple. All you need to do is remove the headset's face cover and place each lens on the corresponding side. With the magnetic grooves to lock the lenses into place, that's pretty much it!
With prescription lenses on your Oculus Quest 2, you won't need to wear glasses while using the headset. This will make things a lot more comfortable and lessens the chances of scratches on both your glasses and the Oculus lenses.

Another popular item Quest 2 users are quite fond of is polywatch. This is a fine abrasive cream that is generally used for removing scratches on your wristwatch.
It's also proven to be quite effective on the Quest 2's lenses and saves you from getting actual lens replacements.
However, you should still take caution when handling things like a VR headset. Good thing there are plenty of video tutorials on YouTube that show you how to apply polywatch.
