• Why am i experiencing double vision after working on the computer?


    Question:

    After working at a computer screen for an hour or more, I get double vision in each eye separately. The images are displaced vertically and they don't vary as a function of which way I'm looking. The problem passes after an hour of normal activity. What's going on?


    Answer:

    This may be simple dryness which is common when we read, use the computer or do other near work. Try some over-the-counter artificial tears when this happens and see if it resolves the problem. If not, I would see an ophthalmologist for a complete examination.
