Hello,Do you see double when you get this sensation?Is the sensation when looking up close or far away?Any change in vision?
yes I do see double, vision changes but it is like I just crossed my eyes....if I close 1 eye it straightens out....there is no set pattern or any other symptoms...it happened when I was driving 1 time another time I was just walking in the store the last time i was in the house and just walking from room to room ...it also does not matter if I have my glasses on or off....I have no sweating , pain or anything else either before or after.
It appears you have a decompensated phoria. This is a misalignment of the eyes. Your eyes have been compensating for this misalignment, but it appears you are having increasing difficulty to do so. You may need a change in prescription to allow you to have between control of your two eyes.Your eye doctor will be able to tell if your eyes are misaligned or not.
thank you...that is a relief....I thought that maybe I needed new glasses. what would cause this misalignment
It depends on the control centers in the brain which controls eye movement. In some people, the brain output can be slightly out of balance, causing crossed eyes.
There are other causes of eye misalignment, however, that double vision tend not to fluctuate as much.
well thank you ...you have been very helpful...I will make an appointment next week
