In brief: Head

If this is a new symptom of double vision 6 weeks after the accident then you need to be re-evaluated - you could have developed a late blood clot which should be evaluated

Was it a forceful head impact to the windshield? Any loss of consciousness at the time of impact? Typically you may experience a post-concussion syndrome. If in doubt, a repeat CT scan of brain without contrast should be obtained to rule out any intracranial abnormality such as contusion or delayed bleed. If a repeat CT scan results were negative, an ophthalmology consultation could be helpful.
