Graves' ophthalmopathy

Graves' ophthalmopathy, also called thyroid eye disease, is a frequent complication of hyperthyroidism. People with Graves' ophthalmopathy may develop eye problems, including bulging, reddened eyes; sensitivity to light; and blurring or double vision. The amount of eye bulging is not related to the severity of the hyperthyroidism.
