Glasses with FPV goggles ?

Hello, new to site. Just got FatShark V2 for present, My problem is I'm so nearsighted, even the vision insert corrections will not be enough correction, so I'll have to wear glasses with the goggles. Any adapter devises or suggestions that maybe I haven't heard of since I,m new. Thanks Tom G

Go to you optometrist and have him make some custom lenses for you. If he's good enough to make granny glasses, he's good enough to make diopters. New hardened glass means newer eyeglasses are actually thinner and lighter than the older generations, it can be made even thinner since they're just inserts and not meant to be constantly exposed to the elements like regular glasses. Hopefully that's enough to make them fit inside the slots.

Just try the fat shark diopter lens kit. They come with pairs of -2, -4, -6 lens so you can mix/match what works best for you. You don't need to take the whole eye covers off like the instructions say. Just gently lift the bit by the nose and slip the lens in it's slot. Easiest way to see what is probably going to work best is to hold on of the lens close to your eye and look at something ~2m away. Try this on both eyes and pick the best combo. I'm pretty near sighted and found that -2 on my left eye and -4 on my right eye worked best for me. Really makes everything nice and clear. Highly recommend them.
