Depth of Field
The distance from a virtual object to the user's point of view is used when determining where a user is focussing. This is known as depth of field. Objects near to the user are deliberately taken out of focus, and objects in the next depth of field made sharper in many more modern immersive VR displays, to combat simulator sickness.
