Thyroid eye disease is usually seen in patiest with Graves Disease hyperthyroidism. It's unusual but not impossible for Hashimoto's hypothyroid patients to develop it. If you think something is not right with your eyes you should see an optician.

Thyroid antibodies 225 are positive for autoimmune thyroid disease (Hashimoto's). There is no cure for Hashimoto's which causes 90% of hypothyroidism. Levothyroxine treatment is for the low thyroid levels it causes. Many people have found that 100% gluten-free diet is helpful in reducing Hashi flares, symptoms and eventually antibodies. 100-200mcg selenium may help support your thyroid and delay progression to hypothyroidism.

I'm fairly sure that if the optician had seen signs of protuberance or thyroid eye disease s/he would have mentioned it.
