While “blurred vision” is characterized by a loss of sharp vision and an inability to see fine details, “double vision” involves seeing two images (or “ghost images”). “Diplopia,” as double vision is known medically, may occur by itself or it may be present with other symptoms such as misalignment of one or both eyes, painful eye movements, or droopy eyelids. These symptoms should prompt an immediate comprehensive eye exam. Double vision may also be prompted by a refractive error, cataracts, or failure of both eyes to point at the object being viewed (“ocular misalignment”). The most important step in treating this problem is identifying its cause. If double vision cannot be reversed, treatments can help individuals live with diplopia.
