Question Thyroid eye disease


I am new to this board, just found it today. I was diagnosed with Graves disease in 1995, one year after I started having symptoms. I was in pretty bad shape when they finally diagnosed me. Let's just say it has been a very long, very bumpy road since then. I also have Graves eye disease. I have had two orbital decompression surgeries and a muscle surgery. I have retracted upper lids which I never had surgery on. Now I want it done, due to severe eye dryness which causes pain and affects my vision. No doctors seem to want to do it, because it seems my insurance company has a bad rep for not paying. So I have been hearing about botox injections to help with this problem. Anyone ever hear of those or have them? Did they help? I would greatly appreciate any input from this community.
