Ghosting/double vision in one eye

Posted , 3 users are following.

About 3 months ago I felt my right eye became a bit weaker and uncomfortable, and also ghostling double vision with the right eye only after sitting on the computer too long, which is the main issue that bothers me. I thought it maybe dryness, but eye drops didn't help, the ghosting vision resolves within about 10 mins after getting off the computer. It can happen anytime and has nothing to do with sleep.

I've always wore glasses, both eyes were -2.5. I've seen a doctor and made tests, she said nothing is wrong with the right eye and it's just like the left eye. She said it's -3, but couldn't provide any explanation for the ghosting double vision in the right eye.

I should note that the symptoms appeared around the same time an upper right-side maxillary tooth was swollen, and caused a very small bump to appear under my eye which still exists 3 months on, I've taken care of the tooth since, but that was 3 months ago and the eye issues have not resolved.

Any ideas what it might be?

    you need to see a doctor, the 2 might and might not be connected but it would be safe to have it checked out by specialist.  good luck

    Ghosting is most noticible when looking at lighted text or objects, such as white text  against a dark background on the screen. I should also mention I am 32.

    The beginnings of cataracts and astigmatism can cause ghosting but a decent optician should see that.  As you seem to be affected mostly by computer screens try using it at different angles.  If your work involves long spells of watching a screen your company should see that your eyes are tested on a regular basis.
