Double Vision When Looking To One Side
Every psych med I try gives me side effects. Last one double vision so couldn't drive. Are there meds out there less likely to have side effects ?
This is a toughie: You're 1 of those unlucky people whose tolerance of a broad spectrum of drugs is poor. This is important drug wisdom: Drugs that have few side effects are also likely to have fewer therapeutic effects. A possible approach may be "rational polypharmacy" where you add extremely low doses of 2 or 3 drugs cautiously 1 at a time; the drugs having complementary mechanisms of action. Good luck! ...Read more

I have been having side by side double vision mainly when driving or watching tv for 3-4 years .Have had prisms put in glasses 2 times now & sometime ?
When you look at a distance, the in-turning muscles relax, the out-turning muscles tighten. In your case, the out-turning muscles are week- could be medical side-effect, stroke effect, decompensated eye crossing, other neurologic disorder.
If the amount of prisms becomes excessive, have eye muscle surgery.
Contac a "pediatric" ophthalmologist who does a lot of muscle surgery. ...Read more
Yes: The common form of doubling is when the eyes are misaligned with each other. If the doubling occurs in one eye only the following must be looked for and dealt with: 1) higher degrees of astigmatism 2) corneal aberrations 3) lens opacities that are not uniform 4) retinal (macular) wrinkling. See your ophthalmologist who can sort this out and recommend the best correction. ...Read more
Depends: Usually double vision is divided into monocular or binocular (eye alignment), and then eye alignment can be affect by the muscle (weakness or overaction) or mechanical issues affecting muscles (orbit) vs. Neurological input to the muscles, or a brain problem. ...Read more
I have double vision from last one month can it be curable as my my medical reports are ok there is nothing serious. Doc. Says it is due biological?
Vitamin A in excess: can cause double vision by producing raised intracranial pressure. Deficiency of some of the B vitamins can produce peripheral neuropathy which would likely cause symptoms in the feet and hands before causing injury to the nerves that control eye movement. Thiamine inefficiency can cause impaired ability to track objects with the eyes producing diplopia. Before taking vitamins see a doctor. ...Read more

Lately I've been noticing yellowing in my eyes as well as double vision randomly (I need to close one eye to read something). ?
Seek medical help: Yellowing of the eyes is never normal and often signifies to us that something may be going on with your liver- also known as jaundice. Sudden and random double vision is also not a normal occurrence. I am honestly concerned about the use of amphetamine as you list here, as this could possibly cause both of these symptoms. How long have you been taking it? I highly encourage a visit to your doctor ...Read more

I have double vision when i look at something from far away. When I close one eye my vision is fine but when they are both open I see two images.
Had brief episode of sudden, severe double vision. I blinked my eyes & It persisted. Went away after a few minutes. Did not close one eye then other.
Exam: You should see your ophthalmologist and probably an internis or neurologist to evaluate your symptoms. I would worry about hypertension, diabetes as possible but would want to rule out any ocular muscle imbalances too. More serious condition considerations would require more elucidation of your symptoms. An exam is essential. ...Read more
3 days ago i woke with double vision, last night my family noticed one eye is going crossed. I've never had any problems with my vision before. Shou?
Neuroophthalmologist: One eye turning inward (esotropia) in a 51 year old sounds like it could be an isolated 6th nerve palsy. While this is likely a mini-stroke of one of the abducens nerves to one of the lateral rectus (extraocular) muscles, it could be the sign of high blood pressure, diabetes, or even a space-occupying intracranial lesion. See an ophthalmologist or neuro-ophthalmologist. An MRI or ct is possible. ...Read more

Double vision: Many conditions can cause double vision, some of them can be related to a car accident. A bad injury can affect one of the nerves that controls vertical eye movement. This is common after an orbital bone fracture. There are also some medical conditions that cause double vision. Some of these are neurological, some are related to high blood pressure or diabetes. Hard to make a diagnosis here. ...Read more

I have double vision on things i don't pay attention to. When i close one if i see blurry is this dry eye?
Is that 2 questions?:
If you close one eye and its blurry, it could be dry eye, but it could also be a number of other issues. Dry eye typically also has associated ocular discomfort (such as a foreign body sensation, burning, or light sensitivity).
The double vision issue is different. Is it true double or is it like a ghost image?
You should probably see and ophthalmologist. ...Read more
29 yrs old, active. Laid down for bed, experienced double vision for 5 sec. Pillow had covered one eye prior to me lifting head to look around. Worry.
If this is the only episode of this you have had I would not worry about it. If it becomes a recurring problem, see an eye doc.
Very likely this was related to the pillow.
Good luck. ...Read more
30yoF double vision,headache, nausea, tingling in extremities.3 weeks MRIneg. No one can figure out what's wrong. Help!
Considerations: Your problem could represent a viral infestation, even an autoimmune encephalopathy, but would first rule out thyroid, and diabetic issues. A variety of acute nerve issues can do some of this, such as Miller-Fisher syndrome. But maybe this represents merely a complex migraine issue. Suggest a visit to an experienced neurologist at a medical school, as there are folks who can "figure it out". ...Read more

See your doctor....: Not knowing your age or medical history makes answering question difficult. You should certainly return and see an ophthalmologist and relate to him/her your previous history.
