    First of all, you should know that graves disease is also called thyroid eye disease. When you get it, your eye muscles will be attacked. And your connective tissue within the eye socket will also get damaged. You may get eye pain coz of that rather easily. Well, if you are already sure that you get it, you should go to an eye doctor in no time. I don' t think there are effective home remedies to it.
