Thyroid Eye Disease

Thyroid Eye Disease is an autoimmune eye condition that, while separate from thyroid disease, is often seen in conjunction with Graves’ Disease. The condition can be seen in people with no other evidence of thyroid dysfunction.

Thyroid Eye Disease can go into periods of remission as well. When it has been inactive for a period of around a half a year, it’s less likely to recur. Treatments for Thyroid Eye Disease range from lubricating eyedrops and ointments to, in very rare cases, surgery. In a very small percentage of patients, orbital decompression may be called for.

 

Symptoms may include:

  • Pain in the eyes when looking up, down, or sideways
  • Dryness, itching, dry eyes, difficulty wearing contact lenses
  • Inflammation and swelling of the eye, and its surrounding tissues
  • Swelling in the orbital tissues which can cause sufferers to have a wide-eyed or bulging stare
