|MadSci Network: Anatomy|
I am a science teacher at a high school in Australia and a student made the comment that human eyes don't growth, but that you are born with full sized eye's. This seems a bit odd to me as during human development, I thought the eye changed it's shape as the socket around the eye grew. I have checked the web for specific answers but failed to locate any information. Most article refer to the eye being nearly fully developed at birth but fail to mention whether it is full grown, size-wize at this stage of development. Could you please check this fact for me as I have reached the limits of my resources.
Re: Is the human eye full size at birth or does it grow with the child.
