I was told that having thyroid eye disease I may experience changes around my eyes. I was also told I may have prominent eyes, a staring expression and infrequent blinking. I started experiencing eye problems which resulted in all symptoms I just mentioned. I had never heard of this disease and suddenly I have it! My doctor referred me to Dr. Deborah Sherman and I have to say, thank God!! She monitored me for quite some time, evaluating my progress. When my condition was stable she did surgery on my upper and lower eyelids. I can’t express my gratitude for her expertise in the area and how much better I feel. My eyes no longer hurt and I don’t avoid mirrors anymore! Thanks Dr. Sherman!
