Eight cynomolgus monkeys underwent ocular biometry. Body weight = 3.04 +/- 0.59 kg; horizontal corneal diameter = 9.79 +/- 0.47 mm; anterior corneal curvature = 59.20 +/- 1.51 diopters at 90 degrees, 58.81 +/- 2.18 diopters at 180 degrees, 0.40 +/- 1.03 diopters at 90 degrees-180 degrees; anterior chamber depth = 2.79 +/- 0.27 mm; lens thickness = 3.18 +/- 0.15 mm; vitreous cavity length = 11.25 +/- 0.51 mm; total internal axial length = 17.16 +/- 0.69 mm. Most of the ocular parameters were correlated with body weight.
