      When do I know when it’s time to see an eye doc? Have swollen, itchy
      eyelids, sometimes “drippy” eyes. Got a lid infection and my allergist
      prescribed antibiotic drops. Is it time or will this phase disappear?
      You guys are great. In a little Texas town of about 2500 people, I don’t
      expect to find a local support group. Thanks, All!

        Hiya Rosemary!

        If you have Graves’ and your eyes are bothering you at all, I would go get them checked out. I kept getting told I had allergy problems (optometrist) and it delayed the diagnosis of Graves’ eye disease for about two months. Have some nerve damage because of that.

          Thanks, Bruce, for your advice to see the eye doc. I have an appointment
          tomorrow morning. From reading the posts, I sort of wonder if he’ll offer
          anything that will improve the swelling and the “dripping.” But, as I read,
          it may be important in the long run that there be a base line established.
          Isn’t this just the pits?! Such is life (I guess).
