How can I find my IPD?
There are several ways to estimate your IPD.
The most accurate way to determine your IPD is to consult a professional optometrist or eye doctor. You can also estimate your IPD by doing any of the following:
- Use a ruler and a mirror. See below for detailed instructions.
- Through experimentation. See below for detailed instructions.
- Using third-party apps or websites.
Note: Third-party apps or websites may collect personal data. HTC can neither guarantee the accuracy of IPD measured through third-party apps or websites nor ensure the security of your personal data.
Estimating your IPD in a mirror
You can estimate your IPD with a millimeter ruler and a mirror.
Stand directly in front of a mirror, and then hold the ruler up to your eyes.
Make sure that the ruler is level. If you're using a flexible ruler, make sure not to bend it.
Align the zero mark with the center of your pupil.
You may need to close your other eye to get a clear reading.
Check the millimeter mark on the other eye. You may need to close the first eye to get a clear reading.
- Make a note of your IPD measurement. You may want to recheck several times to make sure your reading is accurate.
Tip: You can also ask a friend to help you measure your IPD instead of doing it by yourself with a mirror. Make sure you're looking straight ahead while they measure.
Estimating your IPD through experimentation
You can estimate your IPD through trial and error. This method is easier than using a ruler, but it may be less accurate.
- While wearing the VR headset, focus on text or lines at the center of view. If there isn't any text in your field of view, open a screen that has some text on it.
- Adjust the IPD slider until the text is clear. Note the number for future reference.
- If the image is clearer for one eye than it is for the other, adjust the headset position. Repeat until the image is clear for both eyes.
