Customer Question
Hi! I have graves...

Hi! I have graves disease and thyroid eye disease. I woke up the other day with blurry vision, double vision when looking up. My eyes have been stable for 2 years so I am not sure whats happening. My pcp tested my TSH and it came back low .25 could this cause blurry/double vision?

Doctor's Assistant: When was the last time you had your levels checked? Have you noticed any weight loss or weight gain?

I had my tsh checked in august and it was .5 and before that it was 1, it keeps going down every few months but I no longer see an endo, just my pcp. Seems like things are getting worse again. I have gained weight, this is the heaviest I have ever been.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I was diagnosed with graves/thyroid eye disease in 2013, and its been a struggle but I was stable.I have psoriasis too.

a TSH level of 0.25 is basically normal.

it would not cause you to have blurry vision.

Thank you
Do you know what may cause the double vision when my eyes have been stable?
Eye Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 8 months ago

looking up in very extreme directions or down or far to the left or right can often cause double vision at the very extreme positions of your eyes.
