Graves' Disease (thyroid eye disease)
Although the thyroid gland is located in the neck, problems in the gland’s function may lead to changes in the eye and orbit (eye socket). The combination of thyroid dysfunction and eye changes is called Graves’ disease or thyroid eye disease. The eye symptoms usually appear when thyroid hormone levels are too high but can occur when these levels are normal or below normal.
