Hypothyroidism includes any medical condition that results in abnormally low thyroid hormone levels. Autoimmune disease, insufficient dietary iodine, surgery, inadequate stimulation of the thyroid gland and treatment for certain diseases can lead to hypothyroidism. Eye problems may develop in some people with hypothyroidism. Accurate diagnosis of the underlying cause of decreased thyroid function is an important factor in determining the appropriate therapy for eye problems associated with hypothyroidism.

Drooping eyelids, or ptosis, commonly occurs in people with hypothyroidism, notes the medical reference text "Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine." The level of thyroid hormones in the body influences nervous system control of the eyelid position. Decreased nerve stimulation of the eyelids associated with hypothyroidism leads to eyelid drooping. Severe ptosis may partially obstruct the field of vision.
