Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Eye in thyrotoxicosis. A woman's bulging eye (exophthalmos) due to thyrotoxicosis. The eyeball on the right is pushed forwards relative to the normal eye, giving a staring appearance. Exophthalmos is most often caused by thyro- toxicosis (over-activity of the thyroid gland). Swelling of soft tissue in the eye socket pushes the eye forwards, restricting movement and causing double vision. Treatment of the underlying thyroid disorder may relieve the condition, but sometimes surgery to relieve pressure in the eyeball may be required.
