Double Vision (1 eye)


Monocular double vision in one eye often appears as a ghosting or shadow that overlaps with the primary image. It can affect the right eye, the left eye, or both eyes at the same time. The most common cause of this type of double vision is dry eye syndrome.

Dry eye syndrome causes double vision and blurred vision because the tear film along the surface of your eye becomes uneven due to the dryness. People who have dry eye syndrome often complain that their eyes burn or feel scratchy and itchy. It also can feel like something is caught in the eye.

Symptoms of dry eye are often made worse by reading or by doing computer work because you unconsciously blink less while concentrating on reading. Treatment of dry eye syndrome usually begins with the use of artificial tears.

Irregular cornea


Retinal disease

It is strongly advised to visit an ophthalmologist if you were to see double with 1 eyes as a pair of spectacles might not be able to help with your condition.
