Treatment for proptosis from high myopia?

I am 17 with high myopia. I've had glasses since i was 8yrs old. My eyes have been bulging out for the past few years. i know i dont have a thyroid problem, so dont tell me to get it checked.And i've already went to an opthalmologist and he told me "It's because of your high myopia and not your thyyoid."

What treatment will reduce the proptosis in in my eyes? If i improved my vision (through surgery or natural ways) will that reduce the proptosis in my eyes?

Thank you, and please answer all my questions. if you mention hyperthyoidosm, i'm not even gonna look at your answer.

At age 17 in one of the states with the highiest rates of lawsuits you will not find anyone that is going to do elective surgery on a minor.

i am not specifically asking for someone to give me surgery.
Are there any natural ways i can improve my vision and reduce my proptosis?
