Hello everyone, I'm discouraged. Tonight at work a girl - who also says she has Grave's, said that she can tell I have it because my eyes look exopthalmic. I was so discouraged - I thought they have been looking fine but they have started to bother me. I can notice in pictures that it looks like I'm staring, but when I consciously close my eyes slightly the pictures look normal. I thought that if I took the meds my eyes will look normal. I am scared now. Do people's eyes ever go back to being normal once they are on methimazole? Or once the damage is done, is it done? I am so scared. I know that severe cases require surgery, I want to know what happens for the not so severe cases. Does it get better? What can I do to prevent it from getting worse?
