Is it normal to have double vision even after having eye muscle surgery?

2 doctors agree

In brief: Depends

Right after surgery or has it been awhile? If eye muscle surgery was supposed to correct it but did not, then could be under/over-corrected, or could have alignment issues in more than 1 direction that was only partially treated, or other causes.

In brief: Yes

Ask your surgeon if it will get better. It may just take time, or you may need prisms or more surgery.
Double vision after muscle surgery is less common with much younger patients.
