About the symptom

Double vision is abnormal vision when you see two overlapping images. Problems with the eye, eye muscles, nerves, or brain can cause double vision.

When to see a doctor

Seek professional care if you experience any of the following symptoms

  • Double vision

Possible causes

  • Diabetic neuropathy

    Diabetic neuropathy is a type of nerve damage that can occurs in those with long-term diabetes. High blood sugar can damage nerves throughout the body, most commonly in the legs and feet.

  • Branch retinal vein occlusion

    The retina is a thin layer of tissue that lines the back of the eyes. It is responsible for turning the light signals your eyes receive into images in your brain. Your retina has one main artery and one main vein. When branches of the retinal vein become blocked, it is called branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO). The obstruction in the vein might cause leakage of blood and fluid into the retina, resulting in blurry vision and even vision loss.

  • Myasthenia gravis

    A condition where there is a breakdown in the normal communication between nerves and muscles, resulting in muscle weakness and easy fatigability. It is caused by abnormal immune reaction where your immune system produces antibodies that mistakenly attacks healthy parts of the body.

  • Pituitary adenoma
  • Unruptured cerebral aneurysm

  • Central retinal vein occlusion
