Thyroid Eye Disease
Grave’s Disease is a common disease affecting adults, especially women under 40 years old. This condition involves abnormal antibodies that cause an excess production of thyroid hormone and also attack the soft tissues around the eyes (in the orbit). This can lead to bulging of the eyes (proptosis), retracted eyelids, and double vision. Loss of vision can also result from Graves’ Disease.
To successfully treat Graves’ Disease, surgeons must wait until the patient’s eye symptoms have become stable. Once the eyes have stabilized, Dr. Neel Kumar can perform surgery to help ease patients’ pain and discomfort.
