Abstract

The volume and physical dimensions of the anterior chamber have been well studied, reflecting the ease of determination by optical techniques and ultrasonography. Anterior chamber depth increases by about 50% between birth and 2 years of age and thereafter undergoes a slow asymptotic increase until the age of about 14 years as a result of flattening of the anterior lens surface (Larsen1971 a, b). The lens continues to grow (Weekerset al. 1966; Sorsbyand Leary1970) which contributes to the decrease in both depth and volume of the anterior chamber with age.
