Many people still believe that virtual reality is something frightening and dangerous. The parents are worried because of their kids’ mental and physical health. But the technologies improve all the time. You can find VR arenas in almost every city. So, should you be afraid of virtual reality’s harmfulness? Let’s find it out.

1. Is VR dangerous?

VR games don’t interfere with kids’ or adults’ health. Arenas’ or clubs’ instructors explain everything in detail and always stay there, watching the process and the players’ condition. But don’t forget that VR is about plunging into a different world, one different from the real one in terms of graphics and plot. Some people can’t deal with changes like that.   

  • People with a weak vestibular system can feel dizziness or motion sickness.   
  • We recommend people who are prone to epilepsy, seizures, and mental disorders to avoid VR games.    
  • Virtual reality is incompatible with alcohol and illicit drugs.
  • Minimum age of players is 6 years old. We don’t recommend letting younger kids play VR games. They have fragile mental health and can’t fully control their emotions – that’s why sometimes they can’t deal with virtual reality.   

2. Is VR headset harmful?

Sometimes the players complain of eye strain or eye dryness after plunging into VR. These problems may be caused by wearing a headset for a long time. We use Oculus Quest 2 headsets. They have a system of adjustable binocular lenses and a high-resolution matrix screen. The device is safe for your eyesight, you won’t face any issues after playing, and, of course, you won’t lose your eyesight.The influence of VR on eye health has been researched for many years. As the popularity of virtual reality grew, scientists from all over the world began to explore this technology. According to most research studies, VR headsets influence the eye retina in the same way as the screens of phones, laptops and computers. At the same time, note that virtual reality is developing all the time and adapts to the users’ needs.In addition, VR is actively used in medicine for advanced training, non-drug treatment, and sharing information about diseases or clinical processes.
