SUMMARY

The authors have chosen 5 clinical methods for measuring interpupilar distance (IPD) as applied to 103 patients between 17 and 65 years old. The results were compared to the results obtained with a pupilometer throughout the statistical study. The data were gathered by measuring IPD between the reflexes produced on the patients corneas while looking at an object.

Method 1 showed significantly better results with both near and far tests. The average result of method 1 was closer the average result of the pupilometer, near (57.58) and pupilometer (56.00); far (61.58) and pupilometer (61.76). The distribution of the data for method 1 was also more similar to distribution of the pupilometer. SD= 3.116 and SD (pupilometer)= 3.119. Method 1 also showed similar results in the far test.
