Thyroid Eye Disease (TED) is a condition that affects the eyes of people with an overactive thyroid gland. It is an autoimmune disorder that causes inflammation and swelling of the tissues around the eyes, leading to bulging eyes, double vision, dryness, redness, and discomfort. In severe cases, TED can lead to vision loss, and it requires medical attention from an ophthalmologist and endocrinologist.

Patients are the experts in their condition and advocacy groups provide a platform for patient voices. Working directly with these communities is the key to pushing research forward in an inclusive way.
From conversations with patients and advocates struggling with Thyroid Eye Disease, learn more about thyroid eye disease causes and potential treatments/cures to this condition.
We’ve committed to having 500,000 conversations in the next three years, to equip ourselves and our Pharma partners with the insights needed to increase predictability.
The ever-growing investment in advocacy doesn’t appear to be slowing down, and research is certainly seeing the benefits. Which at the end of the day, means better patient care and more options for patients.
We’re ready to keep forming links between our Advocacy friends and Pharma partners, so these fruitful relationships continue to evolve beyond the study-to-study view.
