Seeing clearly is a remarkable process by our body and brain, requiring several parts of our vision to work together properly. Seeing double can result from illnesses and even some diseases. You can also experience double vision due to more minor causes like astigmatism or an infection. Autoimmune illnesses can also interrupt the nerves, making it more difficult for eye muscles to know what to do. Graves’ disease, a thyroid condition, can even cause vertical diplopia (when images are stacked). Vision can also be disrupted from certain medications and neurological disorders or nervous system trauma. Symptoms of double vision may include:
- Blurry or inconsistent eyesight
- Trouble assessing depth perception or space awareness
- Wandering eye or cross-eyed vision
- Eye pain, either around the eye or with movement
- Eyelid droopiness and weakness
Diagnosing double vision.
Vision for Life & Success recommends a complete vision exam to find the cause of diplopia. A variety of treatments are available, with focused activities to realign either one or both of the eyes. If you are experiencing double vision due to brain trauma, our vision therapy and rehabilitation tools can be used as a non-invasive solution to diminish or eliminate double vision. Vision therapy can include corrective lenses, photosyntonics or light therapy – all without the use of prescription medication. We customize the program that will work best for you or your loved one.
