    if you were diagnosed with graves disease and now experiencing eye issues such as dryness and pain in the eyes, it sounds like you may have thyroid eye disease. I also suffer from TED and my eyes hurt and it felt dry all the time. My ophthalmologist recommended using night ointment Genteal. I did that for 6 months but then switched to using an eye mask, which I preferred over the ointment. It forces my eyes to close completely and they stay closed all night and when I wake up I don’t feel any pain or hot liquid coming out of them. I’d recommend you to find a good ophthalmologist and use eye drops regularly and try either ointment or mask. Hope that helps!
