Hi welcome to the forum, the answer is Yes, most of the VR Headsets are good and safe to use but:

- You need to be sure you can adjust the eye to eye distance and focus.
- Your health condition should be good to wear it, some are more likely to have headaches and nauseous than others.
- The experience has to be good one, some games or VR experiences informs how confortable are for the users.


But as I always recommend, the best is simply to try it before buy it!.

VR is generally safe to use, BUT different people tolerate it in different ways. Nausea and headache are NOT uncommon among CR users, and things can be done to minimize the discomfort. Such as using VR with in limited doses, say 10 minutes at a time. Making sure you are in a comfortable cool environment, and you are seated or have you feet firmly planted on solid ground. NOT all VR is created equal! Some VR games and experiences are more intense than others and this is usually noted somewhere before it starts or on it's download page, etc. Avoid the ones that are too intense.
