Monocular diplopia is usually caused by the optics of the effected eye. Conditions such as keratoconus, irregular astigmatism, cataracts, corneal scarring are among the causes of this condition. I suggest a complete exam by a Ophthalmologist to diagnose and treat your problems.

I agree with above. In addition, retinal problems such as an epiretinal membrane (macular pucker) can also cause monocular diplopia. Evaluation by an ophthalmologist is indicated
