If you experience dry or watery eyes, red eyes, bulging eyes, difficulty closing the eyes or problems with vision, you may have thyroid eye disease. This is caused by an autoimmune disorder that creates an abnormal reaction to muscles and tissue around the eyes.

Our experts provide sophisticated technology and compassionate care for you. We have a Center for Thyroid Eye Disease, which brings together experts in orbital and oculoplastic surgery, neuro-ophthalmology and adult strabismus who work together in a coordinated clinic. In the operating rooms, we have the most advanced surgical equipment available to perform complex orbital surgeries.

Many physicians at the University of Minnesota participate in clinical trials. Children treated here have access to more clinical trials than anywhere else in Minnesota. Discoveries made here often become the standard of care around the world.

The Center for Thyroid Eye Disease at University of Minnesota provides several treatment options for children with thyroid eye disease, including corticosteroids, eye drops or ointments, general surgery, prism glasses, radiation etc.
