See eye doctor: Hi. Graves' eye disease comes in a wide range of severity from mild to vision-threatening. Please see an ophthalmologist experienced in treatment of Graves' ophthalmopathy. Treatments can include eye moisturizing, prednisone (systemic, not eye drops), surgeries, and radiation. You should see an experienced ophthalmologist.
Permanent effect: Bulging eyes or proptosis can be a permanent effect of Graves' disease. It depends on the severity and duration of the disease. Some mild cases of bulging will improve after the Graves' disease is treated. More severe cases may require 1 to a few surgical procedures to reset the eye balls in their sockets.See 1 more doctor answer
Bulging eyes: Bulging eyes = Exophthalmos which is caused by Graves Disease.
Depends: The eyes have a normal, physical resting position in the bony orbits in which they sit. Bulging can be a problem but is not an indication of a need for eyeglasses. The need for glasses called refractive power is a totally separate issue. In extreme myopia only, the eyes can bulge forward a little.
No: Eyeglasses are supported on the ears and nose and cannot cause the eyes to bulge forward. Bulgivng eyes can be inherited, due to more extreme myopia, or from some diseases such as hyperthyroid (graves disease) or a lesion behind the eye which is growing. See your ophthalmologist if you have bulging eyes; it is not your glasses.
Graves Orbitopathy: Some cells in your eye socket share antigens (portions of proteins that immune cells recognize) with thyroid cells. So when your immune system attacks your thyroid, there is cross reaction with tissue in the eye socket, which causes proptosis (bulging eyes), double vision, dryness, swelling, and eyelid retraction, and uncommonly vision loss. This is from inflammation, and scarring in the orbit.See 1 more doctor answer
See your doctor: Problems like these can only be correctly handled by your doctor in person. He/she needs to listen to you, perform an examination and possibly run labs or other tests. That's the only way he/she can find out what's going on and what to do about it.
Thyroid disease is: Biggest cause of bulging eyes, not eye pressure. Intraocular eye pressure can be very high & it won't cause the eyes to bulge. It will cause the eyes to feel hard as stones. Buldging eyes is when the orbital fat is pushing the eyes from the sockets & can in itself cause higher eye pressure on the optic nerve, which is why patients with Hashimoto's or Grave's disease needs to have their eyes checked.
Went to ophthalmologist about bulging eyes, he did every test & said my eyes looked great, but he didn't say why my eyes bulge. Who do I go to now?
Follow-up needed...: You should see a Primary Care physician so they can order some lab work, as this can be a thyroid gland issue.
Yes: Grave's disease causes "bulging eyes" also called proptosis as the tissues around the eyes (the extraocular muscles and orbital fat) become inflamed and infiltratedwith cells and protein, the eyes are displaced forward in the orbit. The eyelids can also become retracted adding to the appearance. Patients get dry eye and corneal problems in addition to double vision. Controliing thyroid helps.See 1 more doctor answer
