How is my Lightwear size determined?

We use your interpupillary distance (IPD) to select the right size for you. Using the Magic Leap Mobile App or our Sizing tool on, you will be asked to hold a card up to your forehead. You will look into the camera on your device and the app will measure and report your size.

What is an IPD?

Interpupillary distance (IPD) is the distance measured in millimeters between the centers of the pupils of your eyes. This measurement determines which Lightwear size is best for you. Because to forge the Magicverse, your eyes need to see everything just right.

I already know my IPD. Can I find my Lightwear size?

Sure, it's pretty simple. If your IPD is 64.9mm or less, we recommend Size 1. If your IPD is equal to or greater than 65mm, we recommend Size 2. There are only two sizes.

What are the sizes available for Magic Leap One Creator Edition?

Magic Leap One Creator Edition is available in two sizes: Size 1 and Size 2. Please use the Magic Leap Mobile App or our Sizing tool on to determine your IPD which will assist in selecting a Size 1 or Size 2.  You'll be suited up and exploring new worlds in no time.

I get a different size recommendation each time I use the app. Which size should I choose?

There are a number of people who might fit either size device. If our tool gives you a different size recommendation each time you use it, you likely fall within the population in which either size will work for you. If that's the case, we suggest that you select size 1.

I have followed all of the instructions, but I still cannot get a size suggestion. Why?

Many factors including improper lighting, reflection into the camera, wearing glasses, even squinting can contribute to why you may not obtain a reading. It may be useful to have a friend help to make sure none of these factors are preventing you from getting measured properly.

What kind of card should I use?

While we do not collect any identifiable information, we suggest using a card with minimal information on the back. Some library cards, membership cards, and metro cards can work. A card that has a black magnetic stripe with a light background is best.

Can you help me decide what sizes to purchase for my company?

Approximately 65% of our consumers purchase a size 1 device, and 35% purchase a size 2 device. Please note, this statistic may change over time. Thus, we advise using our Magic Leap Companion App to determine the exact size for your individual users. We understand this may be difficult for a bulk order, but our sizing ratio is only a general guideline and should not be used to make final purchase decisions.
