Diplopia is commonly known as double vision. A person with double vision will see pairs of a single object, and it occurs when the eyes do not properly align. With diplopia, the eye muscles have difficulty focusing on one single object, and it is often caused by nerve or brain conditions not permitting the muscles to do their job.

Treatment depends on the cause of your diplopia and can be fixed with surgery or medication, especially for those with diabetes or high blood pressure. It is important to contact an ophthalmologist as soon as possible if you are suffering from reoccurring double vision.
