Dr. George Yanik
Ophthalmology 32 years experience
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.
Dr. Daniel Rosberger
Specializes in Retinal Surgery
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
