Proptosis and exophthalmos are the medical terms used to describe bulging eyes. Thyroid hormones control metabolism, so excessive amounts of T4 or T3 cause a metabolic rate that is too high. This is called a hyper-metabolic state. @shaniehh \(Ref:\) http://www.healthline.com/health/hyperthyroidism

\(Also,\) Graves' eye disease can also be present when the level of thyroid hormone in the blood is normal or low, depending on the degree of glandular stimulation
