Earlier this year, Magic Leap said that prescription inserts would soon be available for the Magic Leap One, and now you can get them through Frames Direct. The inserts cost $249 and Magic Leap says they're anti-reflective, compatible with the system's eye-tracking features and easy to install. You'll need a copy of your prescription from your eye doctor as well as your pupil distance measurement and you'll need to know which Magic Leap One size you have, but once you place your order, you should have your inserts in just a few days.

Prescription inserts are an important component to the Magic Leap system since it can't accommodate glasses like VR headsets can. And since they're easy to install -- just pull out the standard insert and snap in your prescription version -- it won't be too much of a hassle if you're using a new headset or sharing one with friends. That being said, you do have to enter your prescription on your Magic Leap One each time you install or remove the prescription lenses. To do that, you'll need to head to Settings, then Device, then Calibration.

You can find out more information, including what prescription ranges are supported, and order the inserts here.
