Diseases can affect the eyes, with 5% of hyperthyroid patients developing associated eye changes. Progressive inflammation of the tissues around the eyes pushes them forward as it pulls the eyelids back. Lower eyelids acquire a puffy look. If needed orbital decompression surgery enlarges the eye sockets and the eyes return to a more normal position. Subsequent eyelid surgery is often performed to achieve a normal coverage on the eye.
