Thyroid eye disease is one of the most devastating ocular diseases a person can have. At it’s worse, it can cause blindness, but for most people the disease distorts their appearance so much, they feel like a shadow of who they once were. The public is often afraid of them and often they lose their jobs because of their appearance. Most people still do not know there are many options to treat thyroid eye disease. Dr. Whipple’s fellowship included working in a clinic entirely dedicated to patients from around the country with thyroid eye disease (TED). As a result, she gained unparalleled experience treating this condition.
