I suggest here a simple method of measuring our own interpupillary distance using a caliper.

A typically interesting alternative method from our old friend Rafael, but I find it easier to memorise the distance recorded on any of my optometrists’ prescription notes from the past 17 years.
Unlike the sizes of ears and noses, it doesn’t appear to be something that changes so much or so often from reaching adulthood through to old age.
Mine has been 67.5mm since as long as I can remember.

I had a pair of calipers just like the one in the picture, right in front of me when I saw this. I tried it and it works well.
64mm for me.
