Eye signs in thyroid diseases

The "NO SPECS" scheme is an acronym derived from the following eye changes:

0 = No signs or symptoms
1 = Only signs (lid retraction or lag), no symptoms
2 = Soft-tissue involvement (periorbital edema)
3 = Proptosis (>22 mm)
4 = Extraocular-muscle involvement (diplopia)
5 = Corneal involvement
6 = Sight loss
