    Thyroid Eye Disease (TED or Graves Eye Disease)

    Thyroid Eye Disease (TED or Graves Eye Disease)Thyroid eye disease

    Thyroid dysfunction can lead to the development of prominent, “bulging” eyes. This is due to the enlargement of the fat and muscles surrounding the eyeball, pushing the eye forward. Patients can experience uncomfortable dry eye symptoms, stemming from an inability to fully close their eyelids over their eyes. Additionally, the prominent eyes can drastically change one’s facial appearance.

    Once the eye position has stabilized, we can perform an orbital decompression surgery, a procedure in which we shave and create small holes in the orbital bones to allow the eye to recede into its proper position. Following this surgery, we can also adjust the eyelid height if necessary.
