In brief: Yes

You need a thorough ophthalmologic examination to establish your baseline as well as to treat anything that is apparent from your examination findings.
Furthermore, graves' disease management is a multidisciplinary approach involving usually an endocrinologist, ophthalmologist ;#40;strabismologist, oculoplastic, general;#41;, and occasionally a radiation oncologist. And yes, stop smoking!
