Exophthalmos (also called exophthalmus, exophthalmia, proptosis, or exorbitism)

Is a bulging of the eye anteriorly out of the orbit. Exophthalmos can be either bilateral (as is often seen in Graves' disease) or unilateral (as is often seen in an orbital tumor).

Symptoms:

  • Pain in the eyes
  • Dry eyes
  • Eye irritation
  • Sensitivity to light, known as photophobia
  • Lacrimation, or eye secretions and shedding of tears
  • Diplopia, which is double vision caused by the weakening of the eye muscles
  • Progressive blindness, if the optic nerve is compressed
  • Difficulty in moving eyes, as the eye muscles weaken
  • The eyes may turn inwards, known as amblyopia.
