Sudden cross eye problem

Every once in awhile and all of a sudden my right eye starts to "cross".  Of course this causes blurred vision etc...   It happened today so I closed the affected eye for a few minutes in order to see normally and it eventually passed.   Why does it do this?   I have no history of migraines, I am 55, and wear trivocals.

You should see an ophthalmologist.  This could be due to a number of problems including neurological ones.

This is happening to me too.  It started with vertigo, now my eyes are crossing causing blurred vision.  More than once I noticed in the mirror that my left eye also dilates very large and I have double vision.  I have had an MRI and MRA and they were normal.  I had open heart surgery 3 years ago for ASD, and I am not currently on any medication.  My blood pressure is slightly high.  I do not have insurance right now and these bills are adding up.  I saw a neurologist and did not get any answers.  I am 53 year old female.  I don't know if the vertigo and the eyes crossing are related or not.
