Can You Have Double Vision And Not Know It?

Seems impossible, I know.  But, it happens all the time.  A new patient comes in, gets comfy in the exam chair.  The doctor begins asking questions to get a history.  Then comes the question, “Do you ever have double vision?”  And the answer?  “No.  Never.”

And then the testing begins.  The patient is given a pair of glasses.  One lens has a red filter.   The other is clear.  Asked to look at a white dot in the distance……..what does the patient see???  TWO DOTS!  One is red; the other is white.  The two dots may be side-by-side, vertical (think buttons on a shirt) or diagonal.  And, this is caused by two eyes that do not work together.
So, what is the big deal?  If a person is not even aware of seeing a double image, why does it need to be corrected?  Whether a person is aware – or not – of a vision misalignment, it will still put the body into a state of distress.
What distress – you may wonder.  Most often, it shows up as one or more of the following:
  • Headaches (includes migraines)
  • Dizziness (includes vertigo)
  • Anxiety (includes panic attacks)
  • Nausea
  • Difficulty with reading, attention, learning

If one or more items on this list sound like you, would you spend 15 minutes to find out if you have double vision (and may be unaware)?

It’s easy as this……  Go to and answer 25 questions.  Yes, it is about that simple.

Your world may be about to change.
