    Hello – We are fellow patients here, not doctors, so can’t give medical advice. We’ve heard stories from some other patients who believed that they saw improvement in eye symptoms after thyroidectomy. And there was one study from University of Michigan that indicated patients who undergo thyroidectomy have less risk of eye involvement.

    However, I don’t think anyone (including a doctor) can tell you for sure that thyroid surgery will address your eye issues.

    Getting your thyroid levels stable is definitely important. Hopefully, your endocrinologist is working with you to find the right dose of replacement hormone that will keep your levels normal and stable.

    Wishing you all the best.
