Diplopia is a visual impairment, accompanied by an uncoordinated movement of the eyeballs and the doubling of objects.
There are several types of diplopia, and in each case the cause of the disease is different.
The causes of diplopia can consist of changes in the brain tissues - such as problems with blood vessels, impairment of nerve conduction, and also in changes in the eye itself. Sometimes (quite often) diplopia is caused by paresis or paralysis of the oculomotor muscle.
Diplopia usually has a disorder of binocular vision. Thus the mobility of one eye is limited, because of what both eyes simultaneously can not look at the same object. However, in the case of binocular diplopia, if you cover one eye, doubling goes away. Strabismus also refers to binocular diplopia - this is often the case in people with myasthenia gravis. Moreover, the cranial nerve, which sets the eye in motion, is affected. In such patients, the syndrome of double vision usually intensifies late in the evening (the same as ptosis - the upper eyelid is dropped due to muscle paralysis).
Sometimes monocular diplopia develops. This happens, for example, as a result of eye trauma, in which the root of the iris is broken off or a subluxation of the lens occurs. In such cases, when one eye is covered, doubling does not disappear.
With certain certain diseases, paralysis of the oculomotor muscles also occurs. This happens with a hemorrhage in the brain. The cause of the disorder may be and any endocrine disorder, as well as infections - meningitis, poisoning (botulism). Doubling in the eyes can arise and with the so-called. computer vision (professional asthenopia).
Treatment depends on the identified cause of specific diplopia.
If the cause of diplopia in diabetes mellitus, increased thyroid function or arterial pressure, then the treatment of diplopia should begin with the treatment of underlying diseases.
