Yes. Hyperthyroidism causes changes in the tissue surrounding the eyes, specifically the muscles and connective tissue. This can result in eyes having a ‘bulging’ appearance, feeling dry and/or scratchy, tearing excessively, swelling of the upper lids, or bags under the eyes. One may also have difficulty moving eyes around, and there may be resulting double vision.
