Thyroid Eye Disease (TED), also known as Graves’ orbitopathy or Graves’ ophthalmopathy, is an autoimmune inflammatory disorder affecting the orbit of the eye. TED is mainly seen in patients with an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism) caused by Graves’ disease, but can also occur in people when their thyroid is underactive or functioning normally.

Early diagnosis of TED is essential for treatment to be effective and people with TED need to be looked after by an eye specialist (ophthalmologist) and a thyroid specialist (endocrinologist).

Join us for our free webinar on Tuesday 8 February 6-7 pm. Our experts, Dr Nicola Zammitt, consultant endocrinologist, and Dr Justin McKee, consultant in medical ophthalmology, from Edinburgh will be discussing TED symptoms and its diagnosis and management.

There will also be an opportunity to have your questions answered in our Q&A session afterwards.
