What causes double vision?

Muscle imbalance

Vision
The most common cause is muscle imbalance between the eyes. If this is the cause then covering each eye will eliminate the double vision. If you cover each eye and it is still blurry, you most likely need glasses. An eye care professional can correct these problems.

Can a double vision be cured?

Cause?

Brain_tumor
Do you know your diagnosis? many reasons for double vision - from congenital strabismus, internuclear ophthalmoplegia, brain tumors, meningitis ... Best person to answer this in your particular case is a neuro-ophthalmologist (rare to find, there are only a few hundred in the country). May need to ask your MD to refer you to the nearest Medical School.

Why would i have double vision?

Mono vs binocular

Cataract
one way to test yourself: cover either eye with your hand. If the double vision is still present with one eye occluded, then this is "monocular diplopia" and rarely neurologically threatening. Most causes of monocular diplopia are optical: astigmatism, cataracts, macular pucker etc. However, if the double vision disappears with either eye covered, this can be more serious & need to see EyeMD

Not constantly

Yes, for a moment,usually with dizziness. You are worth pinning this down; consult the physician who is your primary care physician; at your age & this symptom there are many causes for this. Ranging from relatively innocent to time is exquisitely important. This is not to scare;rather please why take a chance? Call tomorrow. Best wishes.

Diplopia means that either one eye alone or both eyes together are not seeing a clear sharp image. There can be overlapping images or separate images.
