I can see clearly by covering up either eye. The double vision seems to be stacked above one another diagonally.

Thank you for all the information,
I am sorry for your symptoms.
The symptom should not be neglected.
I would advise to get an examination by an ophthalmologist.
Ophthalmologist can take a detailed examination to rule out an eye cause.
Those may come from cornea, lens or from muscles that move the eye.
An infection of the cornea, cataract can cause it.
If any weakness of external eye muscle is discovered he may refer you for a neurological examination.
In addition certain brain / nerve conditions like TIA,aneurysm, migraine etc. may cause it.
You may need CT/ MRI examination too.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
