No Grave's disease. Orbital decompression or not?
Doctor Answers 3
- Please don't have an orbital decompression for slightly bulging eyes - it is not a cosmetic procedure.
- See a Board Certified Opthalmologist to be sure there is no eye problem causing the fullness,
- And see a really good endocrinologist - to be sure there is no underlying metabolic or hormonal problem that is a factor. Best wishes.
