Hi Dave-

I have gone thru the proptosis and double vision (without thyroid problems) and my first Opthal. wanted me to wait at least 2 yrs before any surgery. Its been over 3 yrs now and I’m glad I waited! Much of the proptosis is gone so decompression is more of just an option to look better now. Still have the double vision tho which makes my right eye pretty useless and I’m seeing a surgeon about that next week.

I was legally blind at one point and had orbital irradiation. My eyes are now 20/20, not sure if the radiation helped or not since it still took another year & a half before the Grave’s ran its course and the Glaucoma also went away.

All the best, Bruce
