I was just diagnosed with hyperthyroid...never would have known had it been for my eyes. It started with red, watery dry eyes. I went to an opthamologist who prescribed drops. After three visits and no improvement I sought another opthamologist who suggested I check my thyroid. Sure enough, labs came back positive for hyperthyroid. GP sent me to an endocronologist. I am now on Methamazole 10.5 once a day and 20 mg of Prednisone. Eyes are not getting better, the socket in both eyes are very swollen. I'm not experiencing a lot of pain just some pressure from time to time. I have an appt. in three days at the NY Eye and Ear Hospital for a consult with an opthamologist there. I feel the Prednisone is not doing much. Will my eyes get worse? How long does the active phase last? Any feedback would be highly appreciated. Thanks.
