In brief: Thyroid Disease

The most common disease causing exophthalmos, a condition where the contents of they eye "push" the eyeball out of the socket, is disease of the thyroid gland.
Most commonly this disease causes tremendous enlargement of the muscles around the eye, causing double vision, inability to close the lids and "exophthalmos.".
