Tepezza for Thyroid Eye Disease

Thyroid Eye Disease can have a significant impact on patient eye health. It may initially present as a simple dry eye, but can progress to more serious conditions such as double vision or permanent vision loss. In the past we had treatment options geared toward managing the symptoms of Thyroid Eye Disease, but limited ability to treat its cause. Now there is an excellent option to help patients with Thyroid Eye Disease and treat its cause.
