  • I had it for one morning after rubbing Kava lotion behind my ears and on the area behind the ears on the head. It was the opinion of 3 doctors that the herbal preparation caused the double vision. You need to see a doctor as fast as possible. I was fortunate that it lasted only one morning. Your problem could be more serious.

  • If the diplopia or double vision disappears when you close one eye, then it indicates that the problem is ahead of the optic chiasm and strictly limited to the eye itself, most likely a corneal condition or even dry eyes, possibly even stress-related. Only in cases where double vision persists unilaterally would there be any concern that the problem is neurological in origin. Your condition can be evaluated by your physician or referral to an opthalmologist. It is not considered an emergency. Best regards, J Cottle, MD

Monocular diplopia (or polyopia) from corneal or lens problem will remain when other eye is closed.

  • get off the sucralose, splenda and aspartame- found in diet sodaseverything really, even in gum and children's vitamins : \read labels and do not eat this stuff anymore it is poison and it sounds like you have most of the symptomsread about them on the internet check the symptoms for each one- disregard the Industry(company who made the product) advertisements on different sites that tell you they are safe - there are enough testimonials and people who will tell you on facebook groupsyoutubeand google that they were harmed by them and know because they were where you are and stopped eating them and now are better.Trial and error, they learned what was causing them these problems- now you know too!

  • This is NOT ACCURATE! Monocular diplopia (or polyopia) from corneal or lens problem will remain when other eye is closed.Yes I agree, Dr. Cottle is very incorrect. If you close one eye and double vision disapears it is not the eye problem but it could be neurological. Please get to a neuro-opthalmologist as soon as possible, and you should get a brain MRI to rule out brain tumor. If you are very tired you could have Myasthenia gravis, or other problems. Dr Cottle's advice is very irresponsible.
