What Is Thyroid Eye Disease (TED) or Graves’ eye disease?
The thyroid is a gland in the front of your neck. It makes hormones that help control your metabolism.
Thyroid Eye Disease (or TED, also known as Graves’ eye disease) is an autoimmune condition. It happens when the thyroid gland is not working the way it should.
When most people get TED, the thyroid gland makes too much hormone. But others with TED have too little hormone or a normal amount.
With TED, the immune system attacks the muscles and tissues surrounding the eyes.
