Description

Graves' ophthalmopathy is an autoimmune inflammatory disorder affecting the orbit around the eye, characterized by upper eyelid retraction, swelling (oedema), redness (erythema), conjunctivitis, and bulging eyes (proptosis).

 
It is part of a systemic process with variable expression in the eyes, thyroid, and skin, caused by autoantibodies that bind to tissues in those organs, and, in general, occurs with hyperthyroidism.  The most common form of hyperthyroidism is Graves' disease. Source: Wikipedia
