I just wanted to say that I have never heard of that kind of eye problem. I have graves and I have proptosis. That is where your eyes get very dry and they bulge out a bit. But, you said they didn't find graves behind your eyes.

Hang in there niecsey

Re: Eye Problem!! White Line Bump Red Eye

The only way to check and see if you have Thyroid Eye Disease that is affecting the muscles behind your eyes is with a CT Scan. Did you have one of those done Niecsey?

If you look in the mirror, straight on, can you see any white of your eyes above and/or below your iris (the colored part)? With proptosis and lid retraction you can see the whites of the eyes above and/or below (or both) the irises.

Re: Eye Problem!! White Line Bump Red Eye

Hi K9 X no no scan it was the optician he spent ages looking sometimes in one eye l can see white under the iris but when lm looking in the mirror for changes l tend to stare! I know various people have various eye probs with graves eg conjunctivitis , dry eyes. bulging eyes etc should l trust the opticians verdict? it was only july when l seen him. Did you get to read my post after my doctors visit yesterday? Update docs visit? l would be interested if you can make anything out of it please. Thank you so much have a lovely day xxx
