    I have been playing around with the DK2 for almost 2 years and last spring I started having eye cramping as I shut my eyes to sleep at night. I think it's stress for the most part but thought I would ask if anyone had any RV hearth problems.

    Thanks guys! Like I said, I not convinced this is all VR problem, but now that you bring up the phone, VR at night probably isn't helping.

    Would the CV1 or Vive, with their higher refresh rate, be easier on your eye?

    I think if you have any concerns you should consult a doctor and not the AC forums.
    Even if someone here did have a diagnoses regarding VR the "i have the same issue" honestly applies here, it's likely you don't have the same issue and you should go speak to a doctor who is informed versus uninformed information that may lead you to stress over something that does not relate to you.
    If you're worried call a doctor and make an appointment.

    What Rudski said. Your body already gave you the best advise, stop what you´re doing and get it checked.

    I seen a doctor and an optometrist and everything is good. I don't even need glasses, except to read.
    I also seen a chiropractor and he said my muscles on one side of my head were very tense along with a lazy left eye , which he gave me eye exercises to do, which is giving some relief.

    Okay, that´s good. Now if I were you, I would give it a long rest, not using VR or close monitor viewing for days/weeks, till it feels much better.

    Just was a little curious, what/if other people have been experiencing with VR.

    Yaeh! You are probably right. Not what I wanted to hear!

    Out of curiosity did you mention VR and what were his/her thoughts?

    I get tired of no more than 1h use of VR. My luck that is what time I want to use driving in sessions, I´m not in for endurance anymore. My eyes definitely gets way more tired than with monitors, I guess it´s a mix of close screens and low resolution that makes your eyes try to focus on something they cannot.
    For what it´s worth, best thing to do is listen to your body. People will react different to it, so you can't use if someone goes to work with his HMD on and says he never gets tired.

    They didn't think it was bad but then again, they didn't know about VR.
    The chiropractor said to lay off it for a while.

    The optics in VR headsets means that despite the physical proximity you're not actually looking at something 'close'. Hard to find official specs but think I read for the DK2 the focus distance was about 1.2m, so more than typical monitor distance.

    I'm short sighted but can focus on things up to about 20cm away. That's no use for the Vive despite the screens being so near, can't use it without glasses or contacts.

    I guess I've been pretty excited about VR since Virtual Boy in the late 80s.

    IPD Setting: even 1mm off can cause symptoms for some people. With the DK2, you don't have that option with the new RunTimes.

    Taking a break from VR is a good way to see if your issue improves. I was getting headaches the day after VR use but, I wasn't sure if it was from VR or sinus issues so I took a couple weeks off from VR and the headaches stayed for a few days more; since then, I've played in VR a few times without issue. I've also changed my IPD calibration by 1mm and re-adjusted the head-strap for better comfort to reduce any chances of further issues.

    Using VR in moderation seems like a good practice to follow in any case.:)

    While I use triple 27" 144Hz setup, I also tried VR twice.
    On both occasions I started suffering from nausea after less than 15'.
    So I dumped the idea of getting on the VR train and will stick to my triples...

    I've got triple 24 144 hz, which are too small. My question is, can you get them to run 144 hz all together? Mine will only run 144 hz if I'm only using one at a time. When I run them all together I can only run them at 60 hz.

    Yes you can, mine were all at 144 when I was on triples
