Diplopia is an eye condition involving double vision when you see two images of one object. Some people might see more than two objects. One of the objects is usually clearer, and the other object or objects appear blurry.
Diplopia can occur when only one eye is open or when both eyes are open. Diplopia most commonly occurs when both eyes are open.
With diplopia, you might also experience symptoms like eye pain, eye muscle weakness, and bulging eyes.
Diplopia can happen when something distorts the light transmission through your eye to your retina. Your retina is the light-sensing structure at the back of your eye.
The most common causes of diplopia are:
Eyes that aren’t properly aligned and improper eye movements might also play a role in diplopia. When your eyes aren’t properly aligned, you might see two images of equal quality.
After conducting a thorough eye exam and discussing and evaluating your symptoms and medical and family history, your optometrist determines the best way to treat your diplopia.
The right treatment for diplopia depends on the cause, severity, and symptoms. Your optometrist creates a personalized treatment plan and might suggest:
Vision therapy is highly effective and involves a personalized program of eye exercises designed to help improve eye-focusing problems and eye movements and alignment. Vision therapy can achieve beneficial results over time.
