Diplopia / Double Vision

Diplopia / Double Vision

Diplopia is also described as Double Vision a problem where an individual sees two images rather than the one object he must see. With Diplopia, one image is actually present, but due to underlying conditions, a patient will see two overlapping images and at times hard to identify the reality of the image

  • Double vision may occur in one eye or both of them
  • The eye disorder automatically makes reading, driving, calculating, and mere vision difficult.
  • This particular eye disorder can occur in children as well as adults
  • There are two types of Diplopia


Binocular Diplopia- this is identified when a patient experiences double vision when both eyes are open

Monocular Diplopia- this is where double vision occurs in only one eye.


Double vision is common in children and it may be the source of poor performance and lack of concentration at school.
Children aged below 2 years may experience double vision, but they will fail to report the issue thinking that it is normal. That is why parents must be diligent when observing their children’s activities

The Cause of Diplopia or Double Vision

There are different factors that can lead to double vision, either binocular or monocular diplopia. They include;

  • Astigmatism- this is a refractive disorder characterised with an irregular corneal shape
  • Cataracts- It is also a refractive issue where one experiences a cloudy vision and issues with his or her lens
  • Dry Eye Syndrome- a feeling where your eyes are too dry without sufficient tears
  • Squint- It is where the eyes do not coordinate and each points in the opposite angle
  • Pain in eyes- this may also disturb vision, hence leading to double vision
