I've noticed recently that I can no longer focus on objects closer than 12 inches away. The optometrist says that this is normal: the eye lens thickens as you age, so the focal length increases. I wonder if I'd even be able to use Oculus Rift, or if I'd have to use corrective lenses of some kind.

Your eye won't be focusing at the actual distance of the screen. There'll be lenses and such so that you're actually focusing quite a bit further away.

Edit: I mean, I'm assuming. I can't imagine that they're expecting people to focus at 5"...
