• Why is my vision doubling at near?


    Question:

    I have been having double vision relatively up close for over a month now. When I focus, the double vision goes away, but recently I’m having trouble focusing for periods of time. Is this normal?


    Answer:
    Some people have trouble pulling their eyes together for extended near focus. Symptoms can be associated with fatigue and be intermittent or constant. If the symptoms are troublesome, you should seek evaluation with an ophthalmologist.
