I'm 28 and have been diagnosed with Grave's for a year+. So far it hasn't affected my eyes, but I don't really know what I'm looking for regarding that. My doc always asks if "my eyes are okay" and I shrug and I say I guess so... I'm probably the most scared of eye issues than anything else regarding Graves. (I don't smoke, I don't know what else I can do or not do to help.) Anyway, how would I know if it is affecting my eyes? What are the first signs? I've been sick this week and I'm aching everywhere, including "tight, dry" eyes, so it's got me thinking about it. Plus, I worry that since I'm only 28, with so far to go with this disease, it'll probably start affecting my eyes at some point because that's just my luck. Sigh.
