I am Brazilian and I've found this forum today.
My father was diagnosed with Graves ophthalmopathy 13 years ago.
He has never had changes in thyroid hormones, they are always at normal level.
His eyes passed by an active phase for 3 years and, after that , they stabilized with a huge proptosis.
Unfortunately, last year, on July, the eyes became active again leading to an increase of the proptosis, which caused chemosis.
He started a treatment with metilprednisolona (steroid) and underwent surgery on right eye (most injured), which improved his condition.
But 3 weeks ago the treatment with the steroid ended, and the disease is still active: his eyes get worse every day.
He can't use more steroids, otherwise it will attack others organs.
Are there other therapies?
