What is Thyroid Eye Disease?
Thyroid eye disease is a condition characterized by the inflammation of the eye and the surrounding areas. This inflammation can affect the eyelids, orbit, eye muscles, and more. As a result, thyroid eye disease can cause a bulging appearance in the eyes, retraction of the eyelids, double vision, redness and irritation, and in severe cases, loss of vision.
At Eyelid Surgeons of Tampa Bay, we can help you diagnose your condition and recommend an effective management plan.
Am I A Good Candidate for Thyroid Eye Disease Treatment?
If you think you have developed thyroid eye disease, you may want to consider meeting with Dr. Mohadjer for thyroid eye disease treatment. The best way to determine if you are a suitable candidate for these services is to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Mohadjer. During your consultation, Dr. Mohadjer will assess your symptoms in order to diagnose your condition and recommend an appropriate treatment.
What is the Thyroid Eye Disease Treatment Like?
Minor occurrences of thyroid eye disease may be effectively treated with medications or at-home remedies. Some cases are treated with IV medication, or even radiation. Other cases may require surgery for relief. In these cases, surgery will be performed with the aid of an anesthetic, ensuring your comfort and safety. Then, incisions will be made in the natural folds of the eyelids, practically eliminating visible scarring.
What is the Thyroid Eye Disease Recovery Process Like?
Like most eye surgeries, the recovery from thyroid eye disease treatment will require a few days of rest and downtime. During this time, it is common to experience some stiffness in the eyelids as well as varying degrees of swelling and soreness. In most cases, however, patients will be able to resume their normal activities within a few days of treatment.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Thyroid Eye Disease Treatment?
The goal of thyroid eye disease treatment is to improve the symptoms of thyroid eye disease and your quality of life. After treatment, patients can expect a reduction in their symptoms, especially as any side effects from treatment fade. Although the exact cause of thyroid eye disease is unclear, our patients typically enjoy long-lasting results from their procedure.
