THYROID EYE DISEASE (GRAVES' DISEASE)
BETHESDA | WASHINGTON DC | FAIRFAX | HAYMARKET

Dr. Perman sees patients from around the world to be evaluated for their thyroid related eye conditions, often referred to as Graves' disease.

The good news is that not all patients require surgical intervention and that we work closely with your referring endocrinologist and eye doctor to develop a treatment plan, with or without surgery.

Graves Disease | Thyroid Eye Disease
If surgery is indicated, we often stage the process. This may include eyelid surgery (cosmetic and reconstructive) to address the “staring” appearance as well as the bulging fullness. At times, orbital decompression surgery may be required to address more profound bulging of the eye before the eyelids are addressed. Patients with double vision may require yet another surgery. These procedures can also be performed on an outpatient basis in our surgery center, with anesthesia provided by the Sibley/Johns Hopkins anesthesia staff. Accommodations for our out-of-town patients can be arranged.
