A 22-year-old male asked:

I always have rainbow vision in my right eye after every 2-3 months, and when i visit the clinic the doctors usually don't find anything inside. it's been going on for some time now, almost 3 years. i noticed the right eye is no longer aligned?

In a condition called hypertropia one eye is actually slightly higher than the other eye and may cause double vision or partially overlapping images. Putting a prism in one eyeglass lens may bring images together. I have seen this work successfully. Run this by your ophthalmologist or optometrist to determine if this applies to your problem

I'm not sure what "rainbow" vision means. It could be anything from migraine to a cataract. Eye alignment is usually an extra-ocular muscle problem. This should be evaluated by an ophthalmologist
