What's Causing My Double Vision?

By    |   Tuesday, 12 May 2015 10:28 AM

Question: I have double vision and sometimes numbness on the right side of my face. Is it possible I have had a stroke or some other condition?

Dr. Hibberd's answer:

Double vision with facial numbness is most often due to shingles. Stroke or a brain injury, tumor, or aneurism can be quickly identified through an MRI or CT scan.

You should see your doctor to determine if you have shingles, or some other condition causing your symptoms.

Treatment usually involves medication to treat shingles and you may benefit from lubricant eye drops. If there is any doubt about your diagnosis, your doctor will send you for further evaluation.
