Thank you for your question, i would go for CT scan of the head and neck to see if there is anything pressing on the optic nerve that is causing these symptoms. In most cases if we find a cause like a mass or steel plate pressing on the eye ball or nerve, it can be adjusted and symptoms of double vision will go away which will preserve your vision. Thank you.
