Thyroid eye disease subtype dictates management

Posted on

Thyroid eye disease can be broken down in to 2 separate subtypes, said William R. Nunery, MD, FACS, during a presentation at the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery meeting.

Eye motility is largely normal in type 1 disease and extraocular muscles show restrictive myopathy in type 2 disease. Although both types share similar features each has its own natural history, onset age, common gender, smoking prevalence, risk for neuropathy, and outcomes.
