In brief: Double vision
Double vision can be due to a neurological problem of the alignment of the eyes or can be due to uncorrected astigmatism.
See your eye doctor for a complete eye exam.

In brief: Maybe
Sometimes double vision is from astigmatism (images not sharp) vs.
2 separated images from an eye alignment issues=might need some prismatic correction (depending on size, direction, and how different the double is in various positions of gaze). Othertimes, waiting to see if it recovers or undergoing eye muscle surgery is the best option.
