Does anyone know if it is possible to have a neurological problem with diplopia present in both eyes eaparately. Is that even a possibility? For example if you close either eye and see the same exact doubling in both eyes is it possible for it to still be neurological? People have mentioned primary and secondary visual cortex disorders however if an MRI is done and it normal is that still a possibility? Any insight to this greatly appreciated!
That is not true diplopia. It is called monocular ghosting. The cause is not neurological. The most common causes are: needing glasses, incorrect or poorly fitting glasses, corneal changes associated with contact lens wear, corneal disease, cataracts and macular disease. See an Eye MD ophthalmologist. Find one near you at www.geteyesmart.org
