Protruding Eye

Hi,
A few years ago I started to notice my right eye is protruding and it has slowly gotten worse. I have never had any problems with my vision and have never worn glasses/contacts.  My mother has the same problem with her right eye, but her doctors suspect that she has a spinal fluid leak due to past health problems. Grave's disease has been ruled out for her also.
Any information/prevention on this problem would be greatly appreciated.

It is absolutely critical that you see an Eye MD ASAP!!   Ideally see an oculoplastic surgeon. Find one near you at www.aao.org    While Grave's Disease is the most common cause there are some ultra serious causes such as orbital tumors. You need a complete work up including thyroid function and MRI or the orbits. DO NOT DELAY
