hmm.  tough to tell.  

my 1st thought is a refractive issue like uncorrected farsightedness in that eye, or in both eyes, or strabismus with diplopia (double vision)...all of those can wait 3 months.  they all need to be addressed, but are not EMERGENT.

but there could be other problems that could cause this that might be more emergent...like ocular PAIN.

dont know.  this is a tough call.  the most conservative thing is to be seen sooner than 3 months.
