No: also, double vision is usually the result of having eyes that don't converge on the same focal point. Hence "double vision". Would see an eye doctor asap.

Normal: This is normal if the problem resolves when you put on your glasses. If it does not, see an ophthalmologist for evaluation.

Is it okay to have temporary double vision in one eye?

Probably: If temporary and does not recur, double vision in one eye is usually due to a tear film issue that is corrected with blinking or artificial tears. If only one eye but more constant, then could be astigmatism, cataract, epiretinal membrane, or some other monocular cause.
