How do I adjust the Oculus Rift's lenses?

Fitting the Oculus Rift properly without accounting for the distance between your eyes, also known as interpupillary distance, just won't do if you want the best VR experience possible. The lenses in your Rift can be adjusted to ensure you're seeing as clearly as possible. Here's how to do it!

Before starting, plug in the Rift and start the Oculus app so that the Rift has something to display. Without an image, you won't be able to find a proper focus.

  1. Locate the adjustment slider on the bottom of the Rift.
