      Great question! The eyes are the only organ that does not grow from birth! They stay the same size from the minute we are born, weird huh? When you look at a baby’s eyes you see mostly the iris and not much of the white if the eye because their eye socket hasn;t grown big enough for the size of their eyes yet.
