    hello

    a human eye grows the same way as the other organs of the human body grow. It is small at birth and becomes larger as we grow.
    But it has a limited growth, Our eye grows only till the age of 18-20 yrs. after that the growth stops. That is why the refractive error changes as we move towards our teenage.

    Normal size of a fully developed human eye is 24 mm
    myopic eye is larger >24mm
    hypermetropic eye is smaller <24 mm.

    a new born baby's eye is about 18-20 mm.

    after 40 years the lens inside the human eye starts losing its elasticity and cannot accommodate to change its power, that is why we cant see near objects clearly after 40 yrs of age. This condition is called Presbyopia.

    hope it helps
