That is a complication that is reported in less than 1% of people taking the drug Norvasc.  Most eye doctors believe it is more likely to be from the high blood pressure the drug is meant to treat or concomittant diabetes and not from the drug itself.  This condition would be called sixth nerve palsy.  You need to be examined by an ophthalmologist or eye MD to figure out what kind of double vision you have and then you will know the prognosis.  If your pupils are different sizes, there is pain involved, or your vision is decreased as well, it would be considered urgent to get examined right away by an ophthalmologist or neurologist.
