My MIL has been experiencing double vision for about 2 weeks now. She went to the opthamologist, who couldn't find anything abnormal about her eyes. She went to her regular physician last week who ordered an MRI and a Carotid artery study to be done today.I made the mistake of Googling possible causes of double vision, and all I can find are horrible things, like aneurysms, strokes, Guillaune-Barre and a list of other scary things. I'm trying not to freak out and not worry my husband, but I'm scared to death. Does anyone know if there are other causes of double vision that it could be, that aren't horrible? My MIL is 70 years old, and had surgery to repair an esophogeal hernia in January, has had high blood pressure for years,and has no other symptoms other than the double vision, at least none that I know of. I used to be a nurse but the only things I know of that cause double vision are scary, like the things I listed above.
