Can you get double vision but in one eye?

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

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
