In brief: Uncommon

Vertical diplopia is a sign of eye muscle imbalance, which may well be due to many causes, including trauma (orbital blow out fracture), certain strokes, myasthenia gravis, multiple sclerosis, brain tumors, supra-orbital ridge disease, cavernous sinus thrombosis, myositis affecting eye muscles, even rarely meds.
Need to discern the cause.
