What Sets Us Apart

Double vision, also known as diplopia, is the perception of two images instead of one. It can be a symptom of a concussion or stroke, or it can result from an underlying medical condition that affects the muscles or nerves, such as multiple sclerosis or myasthenia gravis. There are also many causes of double vision that are not associated with an underlying neurological condition.

At NYU Langone, our team of neurologists and neuro-ophthalmologists—doctors who manage visual problems related to the nervous system—provides a thorough evaluation and develops a treatment plan for people experiencing double vision.

Treatment at NYU Langone

Treatment for double vision may include nonsurgical therapies, such as visual rehabilitation or the use of an eye patch or prisms. In some cases, surgery to repair the eye muscles may be necessary.
