See PCP or neurology: Difficult to know answer without more information, like many of the questions posted on healthtap. Your doctor will want to know the answer to a number of questions: -has this happened before? -any other symptoms with the eye-crossing, especially neurological issues, such as gait difficulty, urinary problems, etc. -are you on medication? -female or male? Need answers to these before proceeding.

Diplopia: Dipolopia or double vision can manifest temporarily when you are tired. It should resolve quickly. If this becomes a common occurance or does not resolve quickly, i recommend seeing your eye doctor for an evaluation.
