Recovery & Support for Double Vision in Adults

For many people, nonsurgical treatment, such as occlusion therapy or the use of prisms, can effectively manage double vision. Most people experience an improvement in their vision over time.

NYU Langone doctors perform regular follow-up exams to monitor your recovery from either nonsurgical treatment or surgery. They may also recommend visual rehabilitation if double vision interferes with your daily routine.

Visual Rehabilitation

At NYU Langone’s Rusk Rehabilitation, our occupational therapists and physiatrists work with our eye doctors to help make everyday activities—such as reading, writing, cooking, and shopping—easier.

NYU Langone rehabilitation medicine physicians and neuro-ophthalmologists help you adapt to changes in vision caused by double vision. Our doctors evaluate your vision, measuring the acuity, or sharpness, of your eyesight, as well as the size of your field of vision. During treatment, our therapists can help you improve your ability to perform daily activities.
