In brief: One image above othe

Means that patient sees two images when there is only one object, with the images oriented one on top of the other, as opposed to side-by-side.
They can also be diagonally oriented too. Because of multiple causes, some serious, patients with diplopia need to see an eye md or neurologist asap.

In brief: Images up and down

Vertical diplopia is doubling of vision usually one from each eye, in which the images are displaced up and down from each other. There can commonly be some horizontal displacement when this occurs.
It can result from trauma, or nerve palsy to the muscles leading to the eye and some rare conditions in the orbit and brain. This should be evaluated if of recent onset by an ophthalmologist.
