My wife was treated with radioactive iodine in late 1994.
Other than switching synthroid dosages every few months she
seemed to have no other symptoms. During the past few months
she has developed a bulging left eye. I’ve read that graves
can cause vision problems and am wondering what to expect in the
future. Do the problems persist once the correct synthroid levels
are found? Will she need to have surgery? Will she have any vision problems
at all or is the bulging just a cosmetic issue? Any answers would really
help? She has become very self-consious about her appearance and
worried about her eyesight as she is a CPA.
Thanks, Jeff
