If you were not examined by an ophthalmologist (eye MD) during your last eye exams
it probably wouldn't hurt, given your recent diagnosis, to have another evaluation.
That being said, I do not believe that your current issues with dry eyes and slightly blurry vision
are from thyroid eye disease (graves disease
) as this condition is fairly rare. Just because you have thyroid problems does not mean you are going to have eye problems too.
Treatment of the thyroid problem with synthroid has no effect on graves disease. This is a separate issue that is related to antibody cross reaction to the tissues of your orbit
and eye muscles
and can even occur in the face of normal levels of thyroid hormone. Here is a good article from a very reliable source that discusses this issue in detail:
You do not have to worry about going blind from your thyroid disease or any possible secondary eye issues that you may ever have. Even people with severe Graves disease retain their vision with treatment.
Does this make sense to you?
I hope you are less worried now :)
