A 40-year-old member asked:

Is there a homeopathic medicine for double vision?

Dr. Andrew Shatz
Ophthalmology 26 years experience
There is not: Double vision is usually a symptom of another underlying condition. As such, if you experience it you should have an evaluation by an eye doctor before considering any homeopathic medicines.
Dr. David Sachs
Ophthalmology 18 years experience
No: Double vision is always something that should be evaluated by your eye dr, especially if it is a new symptom. Depending on the cause of the double vision it could require anything from time, eye drops, special glasses, or surgery to repair.
Dr. Gary Wortz
Ophthalmology 17 years experience
Yes and no: If by homeopathic you mean non-medicinal and non-surgical, then yes. In most cases prisms that can be placed in the glasses can resolve double vision. However, new onset double vision can represent a serious underlying neurological condition such as stroke or tumors, so it should be evaluated by a physician. Herbal and holistic medicine have merits, but not in this case.
Dr. Pamela Pappas
Psychiatry 42 years experience
Yes, BUT: For new onset double vision, you really need to see your eye doctor -- and possibly neurologist, depending on what other symptoms you might be having. Lots of things can cause this, & need checking for. Still, there are nearly 150 homeopathic medicines known for diplopia (double vision). Collaborating with your other physicians, it's possible that a skilled homeopath might be of help to you.
