Graves’ disease

Graves’ disease is an autoimmune disorder that is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism. Some patients with Graves’ disease develop eye signs and symptoms, called Graves’ eye disease or ophthalmopathy. The eyes become very dry, irritated and inflamed. The inflammation may affect the eye muscles and the tissue behind the eyes, causing double vision, bulging eyes and pressure or pain. More severe manifestations are less common, except in smokers.

If you are a smoker with Graves’ disease, it is important to stop smoking immediately as it can worsen your symptoms. If you require assistance with smoking cessation, please talk to your physician.
