Double Vision Symptoms
Symptoms of Double Vision
Double vision can occur by itself as a symptom of another condition, such as strabismus (misaligned eyes). Other symptoms can appear with double vision, including:
- Droopy eyelids (ptosis)
- Misalignment of one or both eyes, such as crossed eyes or a "wandering” eye
- Pain around the eyes, such as in the temples or eyebrows
- Pain with eye movements in one or both eyes
- Weakness in the eyes
If you are experiencing double vision, it’s important to visit your eye care professional as soon as possible. Be ready to answer questions about whether your symptoms are:
- Constant or intermittent (occurring occasionally)
- Same or changing
- At near or at far vision
- In one eye (monocular) or both eyes (binocular)
- Horizontal (side-by-side images), vertical (one image below the other) or oblique (images separated diagonally)
