Signs & Symptoms of thyroid eye disease typically include:
- Eyelid retraction and proptosis (bulging of the eyes) which can make it difficult to close the eyes.
- Swelling of the eyelids and the tissues surrounding the eyes.
- Dry eyes and foreign body sensation.
- Light sensitivity.
- Red, watery eyes.
- Double vision.
- Feelings of pressure in the eye sockets
Not all patients experience all symptoms, and some of these symptoms may indicate other conditions. An eye exam is the best way to determine if symptoms you’re experiencing are caused by Graves’ disease or another condition.
