Which Doctor To See When Have Double Vision
Yes: Double vision that does not go away always needs to be evaluated. Occasionally, people with normal vision who get very tired can experience double vision. It usually goes away once you wake up. See an eye doctor or neurologist immediately if it does not resolve after rest. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not long: Most doubllng of vision is acute following trauma, head injuries or due to intracerebral vascular events or tumors. The injury may also be direct trauma to the structures around the eye, as well as tumors and conditions like thyroid malfunction. If persistent more than 2 days or so, you should see your ophthalmologist or better yet a neuro-ophthalmologist who can sort this out for you. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Ophthalmologist: Double vision should be evaluated by an ophthalmologist. If it occurs with only one eye open, it is related to the eye itself. If it only occurs when both eyes are open, it is an alignment issue. This is usually related to a nerve or muscle problem. Your ophthalmologist can refer you for tests and further work-up by other specialists if necessary (neurologist, for example). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hi doc I just had cateract surgery on both eyes , my near vision is very good but I have double vision wen looking far , it is almost a mth since my s?
Oh dear!: If your surgeon has not yet identified the cause, treatment and prognosis of the problem, you should seek a second opinion. 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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I'm having a double vision, even though I have this eye doctor examine me twice with two different prescriptions. Who can help me?
Troubleshooting : See if the double vision persists when you close either eye. If it does, it's a muscle problem more than likely. If it's only in one eye, it's a refractive problem (cornea problem or cataract). If it's not true double vision but ghosting, like a shadow image, it may be dry eyes. These things should be treated before giving you a new pair of glasses. Make sure you've been seeing an ophthalmologist. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
My left eye is poking out 1mm. Eye doc wants me to get thyroid tested. Eye aches, but no vision loss/double vision. What are chances it's a tumor?
Low chance of tumor: At 1mm difference It's more likely to be idiopathic ( one eye may be more nearsighted -thus larger- and protrude 1mm) or due to an abnormal thyroid level (either too high or too low). I would recommend thyroid levels be checked along with a visual field test of your peripheral vision and an MRI or CT scan of your "orbits" to check for tumor or enlarged musces from abnl thyroid. Unlikely a tumor ...Read more

OUR DOCTOR WAS NO CLUE WITH HER SYSTOMS. THEY ARE DOUBLE VISION,DIZZINESS,CONPATION,FEELING SICK, HIGH STRESS,FATIQUE AND HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE?
Many issues: There are many issues here-if your doctor "has no clue", check with a new doctor. Very high blood pressure (>200) could cause these sx. Double vision has many causes including serious ones like stroke and multiple sclerosis that must be ruled out. Gen'lzed fatigue and dizziness have long lists of potential causes. Stress can cause all the sx, but is a diagnosis of exclusion after a full checkup. ...Read more
