Thyroid Eye Disease (Graves’ Disease) Defined
When the body overproduces thyroid hormone, this condition is an immune system disorder known as hyperthyroidism. Graves’ Disease is an immune system disorder resulting in the overproduction of thyroid hormones, also known as hyperthyroidism.
Thyroid eye disease is an ocular condition resulting from Graves’ disease. Antibodies work against receptors within thyroid cells and the cells behind the eyes. When symptoms of thyroid eye disease hinder eyesight, professional medical care is necessary.
