Dr. James Thimons, a well known speaker and expert in optometry, recommends in his article found in Primary Care Optometry that adult patients who present with a recent onset of double vision should be evaluated for a possible underlying neurological problems (like a stroke or multiple sclerosis…) .

“Finding a colleague in your area who specializes in binocular vision dysfunction is another important element in treating these patients.”
