    @Janet Hello Janet, Via HDMI it takes video from most media sources. Your iPad, portable DVD player, cell phone. Note: You might need an adapter depending on what source you choose.

    @Christy Hello Christy, If you use glasses you can still use the Avegant video headset. You would need remove your glasses and adjust the eye piece to your prescription. You can rotate and move the eyepieces to adjust from +1 to -7.

    @Oscar I don't know if it's optically possible, but perhaps in future you can add a wider range of diopters? My eyes are -9 and -10, and could never use it, and there's not so few of us who have this problem! Thanks for listening.
