How to fix the blurry visuals in Apple Vision Pro

The arrival of the Apple Vision Pro has sparked considerable excitement, yet a number of early adopters have reported issues with blurry visuals.

While digitally rendered content, such as virtual windows and objects, is presented with clarity and precision, the real world viewed through the headset's passthrough technology often appears unfocused and blurred to users.

In this guide, we will explore the issue of blurriness encountered by users of the Apple Vision Pro and offer practical advice on how to rectify it. While you are here, make sure you check out the FOV of the Apple Vision Pro.

First of all, the blurriness of the out-of-focus areas is intentional

The blurriness of the out-of-focus areas experienced by users of the Apple Vision Pro is an intentional effect, resulting from the implementation of foveated rendering.

In this technology, the area directly in the user's line of sight is rendered at full resolution, ensuring crisp and clear visuals. Conversely, areas in the peripheral vision, which are less critical to the immediate visual experience, are rendered at a lower resolution.

This selective rendering significantly reduces the computational load on the device's processor - in this case, the M2 chip - allowing it to deliver high-quality visuals where it counts most while conserving processing power and the battery life of the Apple Vision Pro.

How to fix the blurry Apple Vision Pro

To fix the blurry Apple Vision Pro, consider trying a light seal cushion of a different size. A Reddit user reported that selecting an alternate size for the light seal and subsequently adjusting the lens position can notably enhance the visual experience.

To adjust the lens positions, go to Settings > Hands & Eyes. Scroll to the bottom of this section, where you will find a setting to adjust the distance between the lenses. Gradually modify this distance until the display sharpens and the blurriness diminishes.

If the surrounding light is too dim, real-world objects viewed through the passthrough feature may appear blurry. Therefore, for an optimised experience, it is recommended to use the Apple Vision Pro in a well-lit room.

Also, for the best visual experience, you need to adjust the alignment of the displays to their inter-pupillary distance (IPD) when first setting up the device. This helps to ensure that the content is correctly positioned relative to the user's eyes.
