Thank you for the additional information. It is very helpful.
Your symptoms are very suggestive of dry eyes
. The eyelid sticking together in the morning is due to mucous produced during the night.
I recommend you use artificial tears during the day 4-6 times (any brand at the pharmacy should be OK, try out different ones). Before bedtime, I would also recommend using a lubricating ointment to prevent it from drying out (genteal or lacrilube).
Also, start using warm compresses to your eyelids to soften the oil glands and get them flowing again. After that, use dilute baby shampoo and clean the bases of your eyelashes with the pads of your fingers. Do this twice a day.
The double vision can sometimes be related to dry eyes. If your vision clears up with the above changes and you still see double, I would recommend an evaluation. If you haven't had a recent evaluation for cataracts
, I would recommend that as well from your local ophthalmologist
