About Thyroid Eye Disease

Thyroid eye disease (TED), thyroid orbitopathy, or Graves' eye disease is a condition that develops in patients with overactive thyroids. Graves' disease is an immune system disorder that attacks the thyroid gland, resulting in an overproduction of thyroid hormones. This imbalance usually causes tissue around the eyes to swell or bulge. At Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, NV, seasoned ophthalmic plastic surgeon Dr. Shoib Myint offers a variety of treatment options to help manage the symptoms of TED. If you have a thyroid disorder and have noticed changes in the contours of your eyes or vision, reach out to our practice today to schedule an exam.  

Causes and symptoms of thyroid orbitopathy

Typically, most patients with Graves' disease struggle with thyroid orbitopathy. The most common signs and symptoms of this condition include bulging of the eyes (proptosis), puffiness around the eyes, blurred vision, pressure pain, redness, grittiness or dryness, difficulty closing the eyelids or moving the eyes, and sensitivity to bright light. In some cases, TED can lead to severe inflammation that can damage the optic nerve and cause vision loss. Seeking professional treatment is the best way to manage symptoms and prevent further damage. 

Treatment for thyroid orbitopathy

Dr. Myint is a skilled orbital and reconstructive surgeon who has years of extensive experience in treating thyroid eye disease. Treatment will be different for every patient depending on the severity of their condition and symptoms. The most common forms of therapy include artificial tear drops, steroids, immunosuppression medications, radiation therapy, orbital decompression surgery, blepharoplasty, and eye muscle surgery. The overall goal of treatment is to manage the disease, reduce pain, protect the eyes, and improve vision for long-term ocular health.
