Abstract Introduction: orbit is an osseous pyramit that contains soft tissues including the eye. its contents may only protrude from anterior aspect, so measurement of protrusion is important for diagnosis of related diseases. Normal level of protrusion is different in different populations and is important to differentiate from abnormal levels. Objective: To determine the normal exophthalmometry range and inercanthal distance in healthy adult population in Kashan city. Materials and Methods: This was a prospective descriptive study which was performed in spring months of 1374 In Gholabchi clinic on normal families of patients who came for any disease to that clinic. All persons with a history of orbital trauma or fracture and myopia of more than 5 diopter or strabismus or any vascular or inflammatory orbital disease or skull deformity and all persons with endocrine abnormalities and pregnant women were excluded from the study. Results: From 1002 candidates for examination 926 persons fulfilled criterias and included in the study. Medium exophthalmous in males was 17.1mm and in females 16.4mm. Upper limit of exophthalmous in males was 21mm and in females was 20mm. mean exophthalmometry in the left eye was 16.76mm and in the right eye was 16.68mm. There was not any statistically significant relationship between exophthalmometry and height and weight of cases. Conclusion: normal range of exophthalmometry in one of the urban population in Iran is different with what was reported previously in world. Exophthalmous more than normal range must be evaluated clinically and if needed paraclinically.
