Thyroid Eye Disease

TED is an autoimmune disease in which the eye muscles and fatty tissue behind the eye become inflamed. This inflammation can push the eyes forward (“staring” or “bulging”) or cause the eyes and eyelids to become red and swollen. In some individuals, the inflammation may involve the eye muscles, causing the eyes to become out of line, leading to double vision. In rare cases, TED can cause blindness from pressure on the nerve in the back of the eye or ulcers that form on the front of the eye (cornea).

Are you a male or female age 18 and older?

Have a clinical diagnosis of TED associated with active, moderate to severe TED?

Have onset of active TED 12 months prior?

Have documented evidence of detectable anti-TSHR-Ab?
