Double vision (diplopia)

Double vision, also referred to as diplopia, is a visual disorder that can have various causes. Overfatigue, squinting, circulatory impairment or a disorder of eye muscle function (accident, inflammation, muscle weakness) can result in the brain’s no longer being able to merge the images in a spatially correct manner.

How is double vision diagnosed and treated?

With the help of a double-image test, the ophthalmologist examines the eyes’ mobility, functionality and reflexes. Follow-up testing and therapy depend on the causes of the affliction.
