Hello there....., looks like she has developed grave's ophthalmopathy.... Graves ophthalmopathy is an autoimmune disease of the retroorbital tissues..... Thyroid eye disease is the most common extra-thyroidal manifestation of Graves' disease. ... When the disease becomes inactive (no acute inflammation), surgery is the only option.... Progression of the disease usually stops on its own within a 2-year period and it rarely recurs. Mild symptoms may completely self-resolve.....
