Today, within a few seconds, I developed clear diplopia
. In the first seconds, stereoscopic vision became accentuated (as in a 3d film I saw a couple days ago). Double vision
is both horizontal and vertical. In both cases withe an angle of about 10 degrees, In some positions of the head (looking ahead, head slightly tilted down) image is Ok. Any deviation R or L up or down accentuates progressively diplopia. Lots of stress this year. Sudden generalized loss of hair. Thyroid function analysis ok. No indication of diabetes. Could have eaten some freozen shrimp or another preseve that was not ok. Lots of blood analysis done a month ago, all ok, except some erythrocyte vol didt slightly off. Cortisol ok. Past life: cell biologist with 30 years of eye use: electron microscopy in US. I am now in tiny italian north italy village, no ophtalmology urgencies at nearest local hospital. Can you help. ? i am concerned with vascular incident. What do you advise?
New observation may help you:
Start position looking out, head slight tilted down: all ok more or less. LOOKING AT HORIZONTAL RAIL:
Then move head to eight cardinal positions , scale of diplopia 0-5 (max)
No great changes with istance: seing a painting hanging on a wall is already uncomfortable a closer range, simply more noticeable 2-3 meters away.
LOOKING AT VERT BEAM:. NE...5; east ...5. All other nothing or little
