Orbital decompression surgery
There are doctors in almost every metropolitan area that can perfo the surgery for you. It's a good idea to learn which surgeons are experts in eye socket surgery and then have a consultation with one of them. Search for an oculoplastic surgeon in your area or go to ASOPRS.org.

Orbital Decompression in Grave's Disease
Orbital floor decompression is a well known treatment for bulging eyes due to thyroid disease. By dropping down the orbital floors, the intraorbital contents have more space and the eyeballs will fall back, reducing the bulging eye appearance. You should be able to find this surgery in a wide variety of geographic locations.
