Not all ophthalmologists are Thyroid Eye Disease Specialists
While there are about 20,000 ophthalmologists in the US, most are not considered TED Eye Specialists. Most TED Eye Specialists have advanced training in one area of ophthalmology, such as surgical procedures. Below are the types of specialized ophthalmologists that you could see. While they may have different titles, what they have in common is experience treating TED.
Ophthalmologists with advanced training include:
- Oculoplastic surgeons
- Strabismus specialists/surgeons
- Retina/Vitreous specialists
- Cornea specialists
General ophthalmologists can be TED Eye Specialists too. This is especially true in rural areas where there might not be an ophthalmologist with advanced training.
