From what I've read you get vision fatigue from focusing on the screen so close to your eyes, removing the rift can take quite a while to recover normal vision.
You're focusing at infinity, so it doesn't matter how physically close the screen is to your eyes. There can be an issue if you're constantly looking at things that are close to you in the simulated environment, though.

This is the arguement Oculus makes, but I'm not buying it.

Your eyes are focusing on something right in front of your face. Whether that image represents infinity or duckies or bunnies or what not is up to your brain to interpret - it is not going to prevent eye strain to the physical parts of your eye that are focusing on the screen 4" from your eyeball.

It seems to me that if you're wearing glasses, or looking out a window, it's your brain that decides that it's looking at the image beyond the glass. Logically, it seems to me that if you were able to produce an image convincing enough on a VR screen, neither your brain nor your eyes would be able to tell that the image was actually 4 inches from your face rather than out there. Like, I don't think you get eyestrain looking at a mirror.
