How to improve Nexus 6 performance with Cardboard?

I have one of the Cardboard VR goggles (for lack of a better term), and most of the apps are quite blurry with my new Nexus 6. This wasn’t the case with my previous phone, which was a much lower end device than the Nexus. I would have expected the Nexus to work better with Cardboard, not worse. How can I make the Nexus 6 work better with Cardboard, and get rid of the blurry image?
Marston has a good answer, but here's a link to the Nexus Help Center in case you need it:

I'm not sure why this happens. I assume that it has something to do with the size of the Nexus 6. Whatever the case, there is a redditor, Nocturnal86, who came up with a fix that recalibrates the Nexus 6 to work properly with Cardboard. You can use the VR code in the reddit thread to get it: https://www.reddit.com/r/nexus6/comments/3d62w7/nexus_6_oneplus_cardboard_profile/

Note: The VR code is the image link in Nocturnal86's post.
