I'm not worried about them fitting, I'm worried about being unable to focus on the screen because of astigmatism.
Except your eyes don't focus on the screen with the Oculus Rift. They focus off in the distance or up close depending on what you're looking at, just like in the real world. Common misconception.

Even given that explanation, I was also worried that somehow I wouldn't be able to see through the lenses before I tried the Rift. I can't focus on a screen (cell phone for example) if it's only a few inches from my eyes. My vision is a little better in one eye than the other. And I was never able to do that "is the apple on the table" eye test as a child. But I did ok with 3D movies in the theater.

Anyway I got the DK2 and quickly realized that the claim is true. Seeing in the Rift is pretty much the same as seeing in real life. I can be in the Rift for hours and still see fine, return to the real world, still see fine and with no eye fatigue. It works great. Definitely less fatiguing than 3D movies for me.

I don't wear glasses (yet) so I don't know for sure what that's like with the Rift, but I'd expect it to work similarly to seeing in the real world. I can definitely imagine the physical fit being a problem though. The DK2 is not the most comfortable thing to begin with.
