Thyroid eye disease is a body immune system disorder. The immune system does not function right in people with this condition. Thyroid eye disease can cause lots of symptoms. Frequently, your eyes will really feel dry and "gritty. " You could get swelling that pushes your eyes forward or impacts just how you see. You could require mental health and wellness assistance and social support, too. You might have listened to thyroid eye disease called Graves' ophthalmopathy, Graves' orbitopathy, or Graves' eye disease, but those terms are no longer used. With thyroid eye disease, your body mistakes your own tissue around your eyes for a foreign invader. Your body immune system then sends cells called antibodies that attack the fat, muscular tissue, and other tissue around your eye. Experts can not say for certain what triggers this immune response in some people. The problem occurs usually in people with way too much thyroid hormone, or hyperthyroidism.
