• Can dry eyes cause double vision?


    Question:
    Can dry eyes cause double vision, especially when tired?

    Answer:
    Yes. Double vision can happen when the brain gets two different images either from each eye or from within the same eye. While double vision is not the most common symptom of dry eye syndrome, the drier the eyes are, the fuzzier the image is. Sometimes this happens when a patient has subtle eye misalignment, but with the additional blur from dry eyes, now they notice their double vision. This can also be worsened with fatigue, which can affect the eye muscles.
