So, why is my PSVR 2 blurry?

Naturally, owners should expect some blurring while using the PSVR 2, and there are a few reasons why it could happen for specific games.

Some titles will run at lower resolutions than others, resulting in a softer image quality that looks pretty foggy, but there shouldn't ever be an enormous amount of blur while playing VR games.

Outside those instances where it's occurring more often and ruining your experience, owners have also struggled with adjusting the headset's lenses to improve clarity.

"I've adjusted the lenses to every conceivable position and it's still blurry. Maybe my face just isn't a good shape or something," explained one Reddit user on a thread addressing PSVR 2's blurriness. "Pretty d--n disappointing so far."

How to fix blurry and unclear image quality for PSVR 2.

While the PSVR 2 isn't a perfect device, chances are you can try out a few tricks and setting adjustments to fix the blurry and unclear image quality.

The easiest of the bunch is to clean your PSVR 2 lenses of smears and fog with a dry microfibre cloth before putting the device on. Changing temperature and humidity can also drastically fog up the lenses, so it pays to be mindful of your environment while playing.

In the Reddit thread previously discussed, PSVR 2 owners mentioned finding the "sweet spot" for the best possible image quality.

To find that ideal view for yourself, we recommend loosening the headset, moving it around your face until the device fits snugly on your head, and tightening everything once the image quality looks crisp.

Unfortunately, during a game, your headset could slip away from its sweet spot without you noticing and become blurry.

Beyond the practical changes with your hands, you could dive into the PSVR 2 Settings menu to tweak some options. Here, you can select "Adjust Visibility" to align the lenses correctly to your liking while ensuring "Eye Tracking" is enabled for better object rending in-game.
