Measure IPD?

Back in the old days of DK2, there was a way to measure IPD directly within the SDK and I remember it gave me exactly 64.0mm
With the Rift CV1, I have always put the slider at 64mm and I had no problem. With Rift S I also left it at 64mm.
Anyways, I used this website to measure the ipd: https://www.contactsexpress.ca/pd-tool.html and this gives me 58.0 mm which is the absolute lowest the Rift S can go!!!
So I punched in this number and I can see absolutely no difference? Anyway, is the tool accurate? How do you guys measure your IPD?

PS: If you try out the website, PLEASE do not use a credit or bank card! Use a worthless gift card or something like that, otherwise you're uploading your info to the net!

    Only 100% accurate way is to get it measured by an optometrist

    I know, but I have a friend coming over to try out VR tonight and I would like to know if the tool is somewhat accurate.
    If so I could use this tool to quickly measure IPD of friends so that they feel confortable in VR.
    The best scenario would be if the Rift S software had a way to measure IPD like in the old days of the DK2!

    There’s an app called Eye Measure for iOS if you have an iPhone. You can see if there’s an Android variant for it.

    yeah I know but my iphone 5s is too old for the app to work... It requires a phone with a depth sensor... (I think I need to upgrade my phone!)
