Does anyone know of any eye exercises that can correct double vision?

Not many: True double vision is caused either by a problem with the way the nerves send messages to the eye muscles, something preventing the muscles from moving, or something partially blocking the vision in one eye.

At work i'm on the computer all 8hours all of a sudden I have double vision on things i don't pay attention to also pain behind eye this dry eye?

Dryness possible: Computer work is quite drying and i advise those with steady computer use to keep a bottle of lubricating drops next to the video screen to use frequently. Doubling of objects out of the line of proper focus is normal although we usually ignore this. Probably the fatigue of steady computer use has made you more aware of this normal image. Relax for five minutes every 1 1/2 hours. ...Read more

Issues may be 1) surgical damage to an ocular muscle or nerve, 2) decentered or misplaced lens implant, 3) corneal damage, 4) induced optical error (astigmatism), 5) diabetes induced muscle weakness or nerve defect, or 6) something entirely unrelated to the surgery. ...Read more
