Often you can: Prevent eye injuries with eye safety glasses with polycarbonate lenses. If you get toxic chemicals in the eye then rinse your eye in water for 15 to 30 minutes. Multiple vitamins, zinc, antioxidents can reduce visual loss from macular degeneration. Annual eye examinations to detect glaucoma, cataracts or diabetic eye disease.

Ear/Sinus Infection: An ear infection or sinus infection will cause facial pain which can cause pain in the ear or the eye. Taping on the face will elicit pain if the sinus is infected. An ear infection will usually have discharge or pain when pullin on the ear.

Yes it can: If the double vision is seen with either eye closed, then it may be caused by a cataract whicfh is affected by ambient lighting. If the double vision is elimitated with covering either eye then this is true diplopia. In some patients, when the eye turns outward ambient light can cause glare.
