I'm a sixteen year old male, and I grew up with infantile esotropia. Last year, at the age of 14, I got surgery, and, as is usually the case, I had a bit of double vision for a while, which then disappeared. I went on for a year and a half of feeling great about my eyes, and of making friends at my new school and all of that happy stuff, until about three months ago. On a festive Friday night, I let myself fall to the temptation of cannabis, which caused me a panic attack, visual disturbances and great panic. I was feeling very bad, and unusually in a lack control of myself, which was quite strange compared to my knowledge of my ability to be aware of myself while intoxicated. I then slept little for some days, because of the unbearable hotness of the summer, and was feeling a bit spaced out. It then felt better for some time, until the moment when I realised I was seeing double again. And that time, I couldn't control my eyes as well as I did post-surgically. I went on for two months of holidays, looking forward to my appointment with the ophthalmologist, which then told me the best thing I could do was ignoring the second image, and that carrying on acknowledging it would only make it set and permanent. I'm lost, depressed and frustrated, and have some questions. Do you think cannabis could have triggered diplopia to come back? Is there any way to get rid of it? Are there effective ways to ignore my second image? Putting my glasses on worsens the concentration problems linked to double vision (probably due to my anisometropia which, when corrected, translates into aniseikonia), is there any way to see clearly and not lose focus? Is there any way to get rid of the diplopia that has been a burden for two to three months already?
I'm eager to get your answers and thank you for them already.
