I knew a girl with it. kinda looked like pressure from behind was pushing her eyeballs outward.

Sounds terrible. Another one of their commercials talked about feeling like you're getting constantly kicked behind the eyes. Another one talked about not being able to sleep well because you can't close your eyes properly.

Hard pass, but I'm glad there's an FDA approved treatment for it now.

There was this commercial in the late 90’s with an African American fellow who could bug his eyes out on command

I was diagnosed with Graves’ disease because I had a crazy hyperactive thyroid. I was always scared my eyes would puff out.
