Possibly: If you have graves' disease, then yes, it is possible. The best thing would be to get checked by your doctor. Lab testing and treatment may be required, therefore you should be seen sooner than later.

Graves' disease: Yes, you can develop changes in the eye socket associated with graves' disease called graves orbitopathy. Enlargement of the eye muscles can lead to double vision and inflammation in the eye socket and around the eyes and protrusion of the eyeballs can lead to redness, ocular dryness and irritation.
