No, eyes do not grow. You are born with your eyes at full size; you grow into your eyes.

Is that for real? I’ve always thought that was a popular misconception.

If you look at babies and then toddlers, you will see that usually their eyes are huge. My kids’ were. And as jaeger said, their faces caught up with their eyes.

Eyes don’t grow neither does your brain or spinal cord.

Your eyes stay the same size throughout your life, but your ears and nose never stop growing!

What about your adult teeth under the gumline and under the baby teeth… do they grow in size or start out that large in the skull?
