Hello, Thank you for the question.I am Dr.A.S.Desai and I look forward to assisting you .
Are you available for chat now?
Since the double vision is noticed with one or both eyes open, I wonder if it is due early cataract formation. Due to tiny pockets of water within he natural crystalline lens, each water pocket acts like a prism and can cause doubling of images. However early cataract can still have normal distance vision. I guess it makes sense to get the eyes examined by an ophthalmologist so as to confirm the above. All cataracts eventually require surgery but the decision on timing of surgery would depend on the maturity of the cataract.

What does surgery for cataracts entail? How expensive? Are there any home tests I can run?
