      Syd,

      In response to your post I do not think there is enough information or
      research out there to justify if radiation from the computers is
      a contributing factor to graves eye disease. This is the first I
      have heard of this. Repetitive stress injury is common (i.e. carpal
      tunnel) whether that can be caused by graves is a mystery also.

      What I do know and others from the BB can back me up on this is the antibodies from graves disease
      can attack in two places. You can have both the graves eye disease or graves disease.
      Some people have the graves disease with no eye symptoms while others
      can get hit with both of these. I think people even healthy people get hit
      with computer strain, etc. However, graves people who have undergone
      various surgeries are more prone to eye strain on the computer. After surgery
      your eyes are still weakened up to a year. There are six stages
      of graves eye disease and these are called the Werner classification.
      The key is to get hooked up with a good neuro-opthamologist or graves eye disease specialist and get frequent
      eye check-ups and report any changes in color vision, double vision,
      diplopia ,tearing, swelling, headaches to your doctor.
      Behind the eyes is the optic nerve which you can not see with
      the naked eye which can effect your vision which supplies the blood
      flow from the brain to your light output. If the muscles swell behind the eye
      they can cause permanent damage to the eyes.
      Ask to have a Amsler Grid to spot changes in your vision and keep it with you at all times!

      I hope this helps,

      Dee
      fI hope this little bit of
      info helps.
