In brief: Maybe

The sudden onset of double vision can be a sign of a stroke, especially if accompanied by other visual or facial symptoms.
It definitely should be checked out, as even if it is not due to a stroke, double vision can be an initial symptom of many other potentially dangerous diseases.
