Thyroid eye disease can cause bulgy eyes, eyelid retraction, double vision, among others. Its typical course is that it starts with active inflammatory changes over a year and then it burns out, called the postinflammatory stage. Reconstructive and aesthetic eyelid and orbit surgery is usually performed in the postinflammatory stage, where things are stable and not changing. Reconstructive surgery includes orbital decompression (for bulgy eyes) and eyelid retraction surgery. Aesthetic operations include blepharoplasty, fat removal, etc. You should consult an oculoplastic surgeon to make your symptoms and eyelids are stable and discuss treatment options.
