Center for Thyroid Eye Disease

Clinic Overview

The Center for Thyroid Eye Disease provides innovative, multidisciplinary care using the latest diagnostic and treatment options. Our team is comprised of a neuro-ophthalmologist, adult strabismologist, orbital and oculoplastic surgeon and orthoptist, all dedicated to providing a comprehensive evaluation and treatment plan to patients in one visit.

Conditions we treat

  • Graves' disease
  • Thyroid eye disease


  • Orbital decompression – removal of orbital fat and reshaping of the orbital walls to reduce bulging of the eyes associated with thyroid eye disease
  • Strabismus surgery – repositioning of the eyes to reduce and/or eliminate double vision associated with thyroid eye disease
  • Eyelid surgery – repositioning of the eyelid to improve appearance and reduce dryness of the eyes associated with thyroid eye disease
  • Steroid injections – given into the orbit to reduce swelling, bulging, and double vision associated with rapid progression in thyroid eye disease
