Nautilus Virtual Reality


Revolutionary Nautilus Virtual Reality technology enables you to try-before-you-buy on different types of lenses before you commit.

Here at McGraths Opticians we’re always looking to invest in the latest optical technology, so we jumped at the opportunity to offer our patients a virtual reality experience when creating their perfect pair of glasses.

Designed by international lens manufacturer Essilor, this VR headset has been hailed as ‘the new generation of lens demonstration tool,’ allowing our dispensing team to demonstrate the experience of wearing different lenses in a variety of virtual environments.  Using Nautilus you can ‘try on’ vari-focals, non-reflective glass, polarized lenses, Crizal coatings and more in virtual reality buildings, or even on a long sunny beach that we suspect is a long way away from Scotland!

The technology works through a simple virtual reality phone app.  A smartphone slots into the headset and its screen showcases a 360° virtual environment.  Once you’re wearing the headset one of our dispensing opticians can then select different lenses for you to try, so you can experience what it might be like to wear them in your day-to-day life.

This immersive try-before-you-buy technology gives you unprecedented foresight when it comes to creating a pair of glasses completely bespoke to your visual preferences.  Trying on glasses will never be the same again.
