How Virtual Reality Makes It Possible to Experience Different Vision Conditions

VoxelKei, a Japanese “VR world developer”, has created NearSighted Classroom (VRChat) to allow other people to see what it’s like to have short-sightedness.

After sharing the world on Twitter (where you can see a video of the world in action), the developer received positive feedback and requests from many people to have him simulate other eye conditions such as astigmatism, presbyopia and colour blindness. He added those features within a month of the first release.

You can tune the settings to match your own vision, and any friends who have joined the world with you will be able to see how you see the world!
