Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of age and ethnic background on ocular aqueous humor dynamics and biometric parameters. Data of normal healthy children and adults will be used as controls for future study of juvenile glaucoma, and diabetes and potentially for any other condition that affects intraocular pressure in children.
