Thyroid Eye Disease 2018-06-13T19:23:22+00:00

Graves’ eye disease is an autoimmune condition in which antibodies attack the thyroid gland excreting excess thyroid hormone.  This can greatly affect the different structures within the orbit resulting in irritation, eye inflammation, bulging eyes, pressure and pain in the eyes, light sensitivity and even vision loss. Your options for treatment range greatly and it is important to discuss these with your physician as soon as possible to obtain treatment for your condition.
