Get key facts and figures about chronic dry eye



Diplopia is double vision in one or both eyes. Diplopia may be caused by eye problems, eye surgery, or health conditions such as Graves disease or Parkinson disease. The cause of your diplopia may not be known.


Follow up with your healthcare provider or ophthalmologist as directed:

You may be referred to other specialists for more testing if your diplopia does not improve with treatment. Write down your questions so you remember to ask them during your visits.

Manage your diplopia:

  • Do not drive until you know how the eye patch, prism, or other treatments affect you. Ask your healthcare provider for more information.
  • Manage other health conditions that may be causing or worsening your diplopia. Take your medicine for the condition as directed.

Contact your healthcare provider if:

  • Your vision worsens, or does not improve, even after treatment.
  • You have questions or concerns about your condition or care.
