Is There Anything for Lower Eyelid Ptosis?
I had hyperthyroid for many years. I went to ER - thyrotoxicosis. I went to the doc and was taking methimazole and atenolol for over 6 month. I could sleep better, my face looked better - eyes were symmetric and less buldging. But I lost a lot of hair. Once my blood test was ok, I stopped taking meds. My doc said he could tell I had my eyes affected, but he thought not bad enough to do any treatment. But Buldging eyes make me a different person. I'm scared of surgery, anything else I could do?
You probably mean lower eyelid "retraction" as opposed to "ptosis"
If you are unwilling to have surgery to rehabilitate your orbits after thyroid eye disease, consider non-surgical alternatives.
