In brief: See an eye doctor

Thyroid disease can affect the muscles around your eyes and sometimes lead to vision loss if severe.
It would be important to get an evaluation from an eye doctor in addition to your endocrinologist. Even if the thyroid labs are normal, you can develop thyroid eye disease. Good luck.
