In brief: Possibly

There are many causes of double vision.
The most concerning is neurological disorders, like a stroke. Only your ophthalmologist can determine the cause of your double vision. If you have double vision you should consult your ophthalmologist immediately, as there are some life-threatening conditions that can cause double vision.
