With the Meta Quest 3 being fully backward compatible with the Quest 2, you’ll have access to games like Beat Saber and Blade and Sorcery. It would be a shame if you missed out on these VR titles just because you need eyeglasses.

How to use Meta Quest 3 with glasses
To use your Meta Quest 3 while wearing glasses, you’ll need to install a glasses spacer onto your headset. The installation process is quite simple, so you should be able to do it yourself.
Here’s a quick step-by-step guide on how to install your Meta Quest 3 glasses spacer.
- Remove the facial interface foam from the headset by gently pushing the plastic piece it is attached to.
- Take the glasses spacer and place it where the facial interface foam was.
- Press down on the glasses spacer until you hear a click so you know that it is securely in place.
- Get the interface foam and place it back on your Meta Quest 3. Just like with the glasses spacer, click down on the foam piece until you hear a click.
You should now be able to use your Meta Quest 3 without having to worry about your glasses coming into contact with the headset’s lenses.
Where can you get the glasses spacer?
The Meta Quest 3 comes with a glasses spacer inside the box when you purchase it. It has a width of 142mm and a height of 50mm.
If your glasses have a larger than usual frame, there are plenty of third-party shops online that sell glasses spacers of varying sizes. You may also want to consider having prescription lenses installed onto your VR headset.
