== == Yes, human eyes grow dramatically in size from bith until

about 15 to 16 years of age. The size of the human eye from front

to back is about 17 millimeters(mm) at birth, and human eyes grow

to about 21 mm by two years of age, and about 23 to 24 mm by the

time you reach your teenage years, in which it has grown to about

7/8th of an inch. This eye growth is in the "axial length" of the

eye (front to back), and not in the part in which one sees through

when looking at something.

So, to answer the question, do human eyes grow?. Yes, human eyes

grow until you are about 16 years old.
