  • Thyroid Eye Disease or TED is an autoimmune
    disease which causes inflamed fatty tissue and
    eye muscles. This inflammation can result in
    bulging or staring of the eyes and eyelids. The
    eyes become out of line, and the individual
    suffers from double vision. In some rare cases,
    TED may result in blindness due to pressure
    created on the nerve at the back of the eye or
    ulcers formed on the cornea.
