Double vision, also known as diplopia, is a condition that causes people to see two images of an object. A variety of conditions cause diplopia, including strabismus, cranial nerve palsies, multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, orbital injury, stroke, and intracranial tumor.
Treatment for double vision depends on the underlying cause.
Currently, the NEI does not have a fact sheet on this condition.
