Evaluation of Diplopia in the Adult Patient
Refinement Module 5: Evaluation of Diplopia in the Adult Patient (January 2018)
Maintaining stable ocular alignment and fusion is a demanding task for the central nervous system. Complaints of momentary double vision, or diplopia, are not uncommon and are not serious. The presence of prolonged or persistent double vision, however, is not normal and should be cause for concern. In this module, we review the causes of diplopia, examination techniques, and treatment modalities. Diplopia is a condition in which a single object is perceived as two objects. In other words, a patient with diplopia sees a double image of his or her visual world.
