Can You Wear DJI Goggles 2 with Glasses?

DJI’s new FPV goggles – the DJI Goggles 2- have created quite a buzz since their launch. As amazing as they seem, people who wear prescription eyeglasses​ have some valid questions and concerns before buying them.

In this in-depth blog post, I will answer the most common questions about the DJI Goggles 2 from the perspective of a glasses wearer based on first-hand usage experience.

Ready, let’s dive in.

Do you need glasses with the DJI Goggles 2?

One of the most common questions about the DJI Goggles 2 is whether or not you need to wear glasses with them. The answer depends on the amount of vision correction you need.

The Goggles 2 have adjustable diopters that allow you to dial in the focus from -8.0 D to +2.0 D. This allows most people with minor nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism to use the goggles without needing glasses.

For me, the diopter adjustment works perfectly to correct my mild astigmatism. I don’t need to wear glasses with the Goggles 2. Everything stays in crisp, clear focus across the entire field of view. However, if you have more substantial vision correction needs, the built-in diopter range may not be enough.

Can I wear my glasses with DJI Goggles 2?

If you have stronger prescriptions for nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, you can definitely wear prescription eyeglasses with the DJI FPV Goggles 2. However, the fit inside the goggles is quite snug and compact. Glasses with smaller, slimmer frames are recommended for the best fit and comfort.

If your existing eyeglasses have large, chunky frames, they may not fit well inside the goggles. The arms may get squeezed, or the lenses may press against your face. In that case, you’d want to switch to frames with a lightweight, low-profile design to wear while flying.

Slimmer frames with narrower arms can comfortably fit inside the goggles without issues. This allows your glasses to sit properly and let you enjoy the immersive FPV view.

Additionally, the DJI Goggles 2 comes with removable eyeglass frames included. If the built-in diopter adjustment doesn’t fully correct your vision, you can get prescription lens inserts made for these included frames. This lets you customize the goggles with your specific vision prescription.

How comfortable are the DJI Goggles 2?

Comfort is really subjective and depends significantly on your face and head shape. However, there have been some general concerns regarding the comfort of the Goggles 2.

Here’s my take on it after using them for a week:

The goggles put a lot of pressure on the nose bridge and cheekbones. This helps block out all external light and prevents leakage. But it can get uncomfortable during longer flying sessions.

The pressure on the nose can make it harder to breathe through your nose. The tight fit also makes your voice sound a bit nasal when talking.

Luckily, I haven’t experienced any pain or major discomfort. The goggles don’t slide around or pinch my nose. I can wear them for an hour or so without any issues.

However, the comfort differs from person to person depending on face shape and size. Some users have reported significant light leakage and pain from the tight fit.

DJI or third-party companies will likely release upgraded foam replacements to help with fit and comfort. But out of the box, you may or may not find the Goggles 2 comfortable to wear.

Do the Goggles 2 have light leakage?

Light leakage around the nose and cheek area is a common concern with FPV goggles. This can severely degrade the viewing experience.

In my testing, the DJI Goggles 2 has zero light leakage. The goggles suction cup firmly to my face and nose, completely blocking external light.

However, as mentioned earlier, this varies from person to person. Many users have reported light leakage around the nose and edges. This points to fit and face shape differences.

If you’re experiencing significant light leakage, third-party foam replacements can help create a tighter seal and block light. But this may negatively impact comfort.

Overall, for me, the Goggles 2 seal all light and are very immersive. But this can vary across users depending on fit, face shape, and other factors.

Do the Goggles 2 fog up during use?

Fogging has been a widely reported issue with the DJI Goggles 2. However, I haven’t experienced any fogging during my testing.

Here are some potential reasons for the mixed fogging experiences:

  • Environmental factors – Hot and humid weather is more prone to fogging. Flying in cold, dry conditions likely reduces fogging.
  • Fit – Goggles with looser fit can allow moist breath to enter and condense inside. Properly fitted goggles may avoid this issue.
  • Face shape – Wider nose bridges and flatter cheekbones could potentially allow more breath to enter the goggles.

So, while many users report problematic fogging, it doesn’t seem to affect every Goggle 2 unit. Your environmental conditions and facial features may play a role here.

Hopefully, DJI can address any potential design flaws leading to easier fogging. But so far, I haven’t had any fogging issues during my flights.

Do the diopters move around when placed in your bag?

The DJI Goggles 2 has adjustable diopters on both sides to set your interpupillary distance (IPD) and focus. Naturally, there were concerns about the diopters staying in place or getting displaced when putting the goggles in a bag.

In my testing, the diopters have stayed locked in position, even after repeated use.

Here’s how it works – the diopters have a locking mechanism. Once you set your IPD and focus, you can push the diopters inwards and twist to lock them in place.

As long as you fully push in and twist to engage the lock, the diopters stay firmly in position. I’ve had no issues with them shifting or losing alignment after multiple uses.

On one occasion, I noticed the diopter on one side was slightly out of focus. But in general, the locking mechanism works reliably to keep the adjustments fixed.

Final words

If you wear glasses, I hope this in-depth review helped answer the key questions about the DJI Goggles 2. Feel free to ask me anything else! I don’t mind testing things out and providing my thoughts.
