We measured the eye position and head dimensions of Chinese children in Hong Kong. Values for exophthalmos, interpupillary distance (IPD), interorbital distance (IOD), distance between medial canthi, and head dimensions were found to be larger than those for Caucasian, Black, or other Chinese groups.
