Double Vision: What You Need to Know

Double vision is one of the more common conditions we treat here in our office using non-invasive vision therapy techniques. Specifically, double vision refers to a condition where instead of seeing a single image of an object in front of you, you see two. This can be very disorienting and can make it dangerous to drive, operate machinery, or perform any number of other tasks. Double vision can be temporary, intermittent, or it can occur regularly depending on the cause.

Excessive alcohol consumption, for example, is one common cause of temporary double vision. However, ocular conditions can cause more frequent occurrence of the issue. There are a number of other symptoms that are often associated with double vision that can also be troubling, including:

  • Pain with movements in the eyes

  • Headaches or migraines

  • Nausea

Fortunately, if you're suffering from double vision, there are vision therapy treatments that may be effective in relieving your symptoms. Specifically, we recommend exercises that work to increase the brain's ability to process visual information or focus on individual objects. This helps to improve the alignment of the eyes and reduce instances of double vision over time in both children and adults.
