Can discharge in my eye cause double vision?

Can discharge in my eye cause double vision?

Yes: The tear film is the first and one of the most important focusing elements of the eye. With dryness and sticky mucus accumulation, ghost images are common. These types of double vision symptoms are monocular meaning they still happen with an eye covered. Also, the symptoms should change with a blink or application of artificial tears. At least see your ophthalmologist to see what can be done. ...Read more

Why did i get eye floters and double vision ? Whats the most common cause?

Why did i get eye floters and double vision ? Whats the most common cause?

Eye floaters: Floaters is a common term to describe specs and spots in the visual field. A common cause in young people is getting up too fast or changing position rapidly. Persistent floaters however are usually caused by age-related changes that occur as the jelly-like substance (vitreous) inside your eyes becomes more liquid. When this happens, microscopic fibers within the vitreous tend to clump together and can cast tiny shadows on your retina, which you may see as eye floaters.If you notice a sudden increase in the number of eye floaters, contact an eye specialist immediately. ...Read more

I have monocular and binocular double vision meaning covering any eye doesn't make a difference, what does this mean the cause could be?

I have monocular and binocular double vision meaning covering any eye doesn't make a difference, what does this mean the cause could be?

Double vision: True binocular diplopia is due to misalignment of the eyes. This can be due to a CNS or PNS lesion. "Double vision" in just one eye is ALWAYS an eye problem, NEVER a brain or nerve problem. So one is nervous system, the other is eye. These are very important diagnostic distinctions. "Eye" is what ophthalmologists do; "nervous system" is what neuro-ophthalmologists do. ...Read more

Does pseudotumor cerebri cause double vision out of one eye, or out of both eyes?

Monocular diplopia: can occur with pseudotumor. It is rare. Transmission of raised intracranial pressure forward through the CSF space surrounding the optic nerve can cause papilledema and this can sometimes cause a distortion in the shape of the retina that produces two images in part of the visual field from one eye. I saw my first case of this in 1989 as a neurology resident rotating through neuro-ophthalmology. ...Read more
