First, patients with well- compensated intermittent strabismus eg, exophoria, congenital fourth nerve palsy are able to fuse images to eliminate diplopia.

Br J Ophthalmol ; This test is fraught with false negative results in ocular MG. Wavefront technology can measure higher-order optical aberrations, which have been associated with monocular diplopia. With normal neuroimaging, the clinician may consider lumbar puncture with opening pressure, especially if optic nerve edema is also present.

Acute unilateral isolated ptosis

The brain naturally guards against double vision. Monovision correction may render some patients diplopic by two mechanisms.

Views Read Edit View history. For other uses, see Double vision disambiguation. D ICD – Cataract Congenital cataract Childhood cataract Aphakia Ectopia dpilopia. Pupil sparing signifies a normal pupil equal in size and reactivity to its partner, whereas pupillary involvement indicates a larger pupil, poorly responsive to light and accommodation.


The hypertropia is generally present in primary gaze and may be comitant or incomitant. Progression or lack of improvement after several weeks merits MRI of the brain with gadolinium along the course of the sixth nerve, with specific attention to the brainstem, clivus, cavernous sinus, and orbit. Expansion of monlcular explant material may cause a restrictive orbitopathy.

Monocular Diplopia

Note the slowed saccades of the left eye compared to those of the right. Curr Allergy Asthma Rep ; 9: Other mimickers of fourth nerve palsy include skew deviation, myasthenia gravis, and thyroid eye disease.

Thank you Your feedback has been sent. Refractive Surgery Patients can report monocular or binocular diplopia after refractive surgery. Recognition and differential diagnosis of enlarged extra ocular muscles in computed tomography. Orthoptic training using base-out prisms for near viewing, convergence exercises using stereograms, home computer orthoptics, and riplopia fixation from distance to near targets may improve symptoms.

Not commissioned; externally peer reviewed. Patients typically complain of vertical diplopia in the early postoperative period and demonstrate a paresis of the involved EOM. The ability to suppress is to be found particularly in childhood when the brain is still developing. Monocular diplopia differs from binocular diplopia by the persistence of the symptom when the eye is closed.

Case Report: Acute unilateral isolated ptosis

Temporary binocular diplopia can se caused by alcohol intoxication or head injuries, such as concussion if temporary double vision does not resolve quickly, one should see an optometrist or ophthalmologist immediately. Di;lopia these tests return negative and clinical suspicion remains high, then conventional catheter angiography should be ordered.


In some cases, a silicone element can transect and disinsert the EOM. In general, patients with Duane syndrome do not complain of diplopia. This correlation of particular areas of the retina in one eye with the same areas in the other is known as retinal correspondence.

Diplopia: Diagnosis and Management: Evaluation and Management

In decreasing order of frequency, the medial, superior, and lateral recti may also be affected. The brain calculates the visual direction of an object based upon the position of its image relative to the fovea. Dacryoadenitis Epiphora Dacryocystitis Xerophthalmia.

Many supranuclear disorders do not cause diplopia, because ophthalmoplegia is symmetric between the eyes. His medical history included cardiomyopathy and arrythmogenic right ventricular tachycardia for acusas he had an implantable cardioverter defibrillator ICD fitted and was awaiting ablation.

National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. Patients with Duane retraction syndrome Type I have a substantial abduction deficit yet a comparatively cuasas primary position esotropia. Myasthenia Gravis Because any eye muscle or motility pattern can occur in myasthenia gravis MGit should remain on the differential diagnosis of any patient with binocular diplopia.

Binocular diplopia depends on the visual axes of each eye being out of alignment and therefore disappears when one eye is occluded. Neuroanatomy through Clinical Cases.
