Monocular diplopia

I am 20 and suffering from monocular diplopia . Its in my right eye. I see a ghost image on top of the normal image. Its more prominent in dark conditions such as white letters on black background. I have been to several opthalmologist they say that nothing is wrong with my eyes. I got oct field of view and retina scan done which came back to be normal. I am really worried of what's causing this problem . Can it be something related to my brain. My family thinks that i am suffering from anxiety. I have tried looking through a pinhole. The pinhole makes my vision better completely removing the ghost image. Can someone provide any solution to this problem..

This is a common posting.  The common causes: regular or irregular corneal astigmatism,  lens problems like cataracts, debris like blood in the vitreous or abnormal macula.   For people that wear glasses: improper glasses prescription or poorly fitting or manufactured glasses.

You would need to see a Eye MD ophthalmologist that specializes in corneal disease. Your tests would need to include a cornea topography test.  Also macular OCT.   Monocular diplopia corrected by looking through pinhole is usually cornea problem.  Rarely anxiety.

Is there any chance of it being neurological ??
I am really worried about it
No, if neurological pinhole would not help.  Pinhole has to do with optical causes not neurological
But sir i have consulted 3 doctors everyone told me that there was nothing wrong with my eyes
Can my symptoms points towards cerebral polyopia

Can lasik fix the problem?
I am not answering any more of your questions. I have given you a plan: see cornea Eye MD and have corneal toprography. Anything else is just speculation which we don't do.  Again no more questions/answers.
