Several thoughts. Treat underlying thyroid disease treat symtpoms with shades and tears try selenium, then prednisone, rituximab, radiation, surgery in that order.
Graves eye disease. First you need to get the hyperactive thyroid fixed, as that may improve your eyes. Then a careful assessment by an ophthalmologist who works on this. Sometimes surgery is needed, sometimes not. Sometimes a course of steroids helps. Sometimes the eyes protrude, but sometimes it is the lid that is retracted, giving the appearance of protrusion.
Yes. Selenium, prednisone, Rituximab and radiation should be considered.
Yes. Some patients with grave's disease develop bulging eyes. If vision is affected an ophthalmologist can be helpful.
