Having eyes that enlarge or protrude from their natural position may indicate a dangerous medical problem with bulging eyes. Exophthalmos and proptosis are two medical terms for protruding eyes. While some people have protruding eyes from birth, others get them as a result of an underlying medical problem. Unless you lift your eyelid, the white component of your eye shouldn’t typically be seen above your iris (the colored area of the eye). The white of your eye may be a symptom of abnormal bulging eyes if it is visible between your iris and upper eyelid. The underlying reason for your bulging eyes will determine the suggested course of treatment for you.
Typically, thyroid conditions like Graves’ disease or hyperthyroidism are to blame for bulging eyes. Eyelid swelling and redness, as well as dry, irritated, or watery eyes, are symptoms. There is also a gritty sensation with eye movement in bulging eyes. Thyroid medicine, artificial tears, corticosteroids, immunosuppressant drugs, and potentially surgery are among the forms of treatment. The bulging of one or both of your eyes from their natural position is known as proptosis. Exophthalmos is another name for bulging eyes. Proptosis causes the eyes to enlarge, which makes blinking challenging. The protective outer layer (cornea) of your eyes does not get the lubrication it requires to function when you are unable to blink. Your cornea could suffer harm. Other issues, including poor vision or double vision, can occur in some people.
