In this disclosure, a method to create a wide field of view augmented reality head-mounted display which has a small form factor is disclosed. Two transparent video displays are used as a front-facing main display and two other transparent video displays are used from the left and right sides of the front-facing main display slightly tilted. A beam splitter is used to combine the real-world view and the computer-generated view. Two overhead displays are used with two convex lenses to project two images into the beam splitter. The result is a small form factor augmented reality head-mounted display with a clearly focused smaller central vision region and a larger peripheral region surrounding that central region. The objective is to give a user a clear central field of view and a sensation of the peripheral vision surrounding it.
