Is the interpupillary distance adjustable to fit the varying distances of the eyes in wide and/or narrow faces?
Asked by: Gerard
The IPD range on these goes from a minimum distance of 5.6cm up to 7.4cm, which as you can see by comparing the IPD with others is a good range for a bin in this class and means they should accommodate most people.
