A 44-year-old male asked:
Is there any other refractive error diseases beside astigmatism and keratoconus? or anything that may cause monocular diplopia?

Refractive errors are not the only causes of monocular diplopia. Catatacts, corneal issues and retinal diseases affecting the macula can also do so. You should be evaluated by an ophthalmologist if glasses to correct your refractive errors do not resolve the diplopia.
