Over the past several years, West Coast Eye Care
has treated an increased number of patients for diplopia, commonly called double vision. Double vision can occur at any age and usually occurs because of the eyes being misaligned.
It is not a normal state and can be a sign of serious eye or neurological disease. Each eye has six different muscles responsible for moving it, which means the brain must control twelve muscles simultaneously through a pathway of nerve connections that course throughout the central nervous system.
