      I have undergone two; three wall orbital transnasal decompression
      surgeries, and one four wall transnasal decompression/craniotomy
      for the graves eye disease. In all instances, these were done on an emergency basis
      and were done to protect the vision and not for cosmetic reasons.

      With the eye disease everybody responds differently to the way the antibodies
      attack the eye muscles. In my case, I never showed any outward symptoms
      typical for the graves eye disease patient. Plus I was seeing my eye doctor’s regularly
      I never had the stare, proptosis, swelling of the lids, etc. The thyroid antibodies
      attacked the muscles behind the eyes so severe to damage the optic nerve. I basically
      was walking around with a normal appearance but the antibodies planned their
      severe attack. Just thought I would share this with you. If
      you have any questions, please e-mail me.
