Cure Research for Thyroid eye disease

Treatments for Thyroid eye disease

Treatments to consider for Thyroid eye disease may include:

  • Topical lubrication
  • Corticosteroids
  • Tarsorrhaphy
  • Radiotherapy
  • The first priority is to deal with the primary thyroid problem. This is firstly with anti-thyroid drugs, and then with either surgery or radiotherapy
  • When the eyes are dry and gritty then the best treatment is to use lubricating eye drops - artificial tears. These can help to make the eyes feel more comfortable and help to prevent the eye being damaged by being so dry.
  • A variety of treatments are available depending on whether the double vision is temporary or permanent. An orthoptist should be involved in such treatments
