Apple’s revolutionary Vision Pro AR/VR headset is still fresh and there are many questions left unanswered. One of those is the price of the prescription lenses for people that need them to use the thing.
Well, Bloomberg correspondent Mark Gurman guesses that a pair of Zeiss lenses for the Vision Pro could cost between $300 and $600. It’s a hefty figure but hardly surprising, considering that Apple sells feet for the Mac Pro for $299, and wheels for the Mac Pro for $699.
And it’s not like anyone would buy a $3,500 headset and then refuse to pay for lenses needed to use it.
I would guess that the Zeiss prescription lenses for the Vision Pro will be at least $300-600 a pair, unless Apple is eating part of the cost given the already high price of the headset itself.

Then again, Zeiss already makes add-on lenses for VR headsets and they range in the €70-€100 range, so some hope remains.
