Grave's Disease Dry Eyes - Relief using TheraLife

Grave's Disease Dry Eyes- Relief using TheraLife

This is a personal story-Grave’s Disease Thyroid Dry Eyes- Relief by TheraLife Eye

I am a 48 year old woman who was diagnosed with Graves Disease 5 years ago.  Graves’s disease tends to attack the thyroid gland as well as the eyes.  My eye problem started about 4 years ago with severe dryness.  I went to many doctors with NO Success!!! They only suggested I continue to put eye drops and ointments in my eyes.  This actually exacerbated my problem. I became very desperate, and then found TheraLife on the internet.  I found relief within a few weeks and have been on a dose of 2-4 pills ever since.  I DO NOT use ANY eye drops or ointments anymore. The supplements totally keep my dry eye problem under control. Once in awhile, I need to take 6-8 capsules, but after a couple of weeks, I usually can go back to about 4.  I am extremely happy and grateful for finding TheraLife.

Graves’ disease is an autoimmune disorder that results in overactive thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism). It is caused by an abnormal immune system response which prompts the thyroid gland to produce too much thyroid hormone. Graves’ disease is most common in women over age 20. However, the disorder may occur at any age and may affect men as well

Dry Eyes and Graves’ Disease

Dry eye syndrome is very common amongst people with Graves’ disease. It is also called “thyroid eye disease”.
Thyroid eye disease is known to go through varying degrees of severity, and it can go into periods of remission. When it has been inactive for a period of around a half a year, it’s less likely to recur.

Dry Eye Symptoms in Graves’ Disease

  • In addition to the typical dry eye symptoms of dry, irritated, gritty, light sensitivity. 
  • Swelling in the orbital tissues which causes the eye to be pushed forward — referred to as exophthalmos — which can make thyroid eye disease sufferers appear to have a wide-eyed or bulging stare.
  • Bloodshot appearance to eyes
  • Double vision (diplopia)
  • Impaired vision

Treatments for Dry Eyes in Graves’ Disease

Your clear choice is TheraLife® Autoimmune. Our formula restores both tear volume and tear thickness – producing balanced sustainable tears for maximum comfort.
In milder cases of thyroid eye disease, typical treatments for dry eye syndrome work well. These include but are not limited to:

  • Wrap-around sunglasses to avoid wind and glare
  • Room humidifiers for better comfort
  • Prism lenses in eye glasses to reduce double vision.
  • Short course of Prednisone to address eye swelling and redness

The Issue of Radioactive Iodine Treatment (RAI) for Graves’ Disease

Radioactive Iodine (RAI) treatment is the preferred treatment in the U.S. for Graves’ disease and its resulting hyperthyroidism. According to the New England Journal of Medicine, however, radioiodine therapy for Graves’ hyperthyroidism is more likely to apparently cause or worsen thyroid eye disease than is anti-thyroid drug therapy. This worsening can be temporary however, and may in some cases be prevented by use of the steroid prednisone.

Dry Eye Syndrome and It's Impact on the Workplace

Dry Eye Syndrome and It's Impact on the Workplace

Dry eye syndrome is a multifactorial condition characterized by an unstable tear film resulting in symptoms of eye discomfort and visual disturbances. Quality of life studies have shown that dry eye syndrome has the potential to have a detrimental impact on patients’ daily living activities, with a significant proportion of people self-treating with over-the-counter (OTC) dry eye products, especially eye drops. What is not well documented is how dry eye syndrome influences the work place.

New Research Study Shows Impact of Dry Eyes on the Workplace - Loss of Productivity.

Here is an abstract from this clinical study.  
The purpose of this non-interventional, cross sectional, prospective study was to assess the effect of dry eye disease on work productivity and performance of non–work-related activities, and people's satisfaction with OTC dry eye treatments. The study included 158 consecutive symptomatic dry eye patients at a number of clinical centers who were asked to complete Work Productivity and Activity Impairment and Ocular SurfaceDisease Index  questionnaires and undergo standard dry eye diagnostic testing (Schirmer, tear break up time, corneal and conjunctival staining). Use of OTC dry eye medication, and satisfaction with OTC medication and symptom relief were also assessed.
The results indicate that dry eye syndrome did not contribute to absenteeism but did negatively affect work productivity and non-job related daily activities. The negative workplace performance effect experienced by people with dry eyes was significant (approximately 29%) and correlated with their self-assessment of dry eye symptoms but not clinical assessment. These results reinforce personal clinical experience that people with dry eyes tend to present with symptoms with few clinical signs to explain the symptoms.  Another words tests for dry eyes were often negative.  

The study did not address the number of people with dry eyes having to leave their jobs due to dry eyes.

The study didn't specifically address which occupations were most likely to be affected, but intuitively those jobs that require intensive computer usage in air-conditioned/heated work-spaces would be most likely. A majority of the study participants were utilizing OTC dry eye products and interestingly their opinion of the effectiveness of such products was more positive than their reported assessment of dry eye relief provided by the products.  Another words, people with dry eyes want to believe over the counter eye drops will work, but the actual dry eye relief by using eye drops was low.  

This is consistent with TheraLife 's assessment that for a high percentage of dry eyes, eye drops don't work.

This study was pubulished in the July issue of Ocular Surface News
