    Your intraocular pressures can rise due to increased size of eye muscles from TED. As muscles thicken, they take up more space in the orbits causing pressure on the eyeballs. If this is the reason for the increased pressure, it will return to normal after more space is created in the orbit via orbital decompressions. People with TED whose eyes do not bulge forward very much (thus also creating space) tend to have elevated pressures. Your ophthalmologist can determine if your glaucoma is from this increased pressure from TED or from the usual causes of glaucoma like narrow angles, etc. If you have doubts, see an oculoplastic surgeon who can check for muscle enlargement and/or a glaucoma specialist.
