I have had double vision since the age of 20 and it has been getting worse.
I am now 46 with double vision on the vertical and horizontal. I have been seen many eye specialists who have said I am coping with glasses, I'm fine and carry on as I have been.
I have found this very frustrating because fatigue or any amount of stress affects my vision.
I have recently had my right eye operated on (superior oblique) where they tried to tighten the muscle. This failed, which has caused me to need a larger prism which is too much to incorporate into my glasses. They now want to operate on the inferior rectus in my left to weaken the muscle.
As you may understand, I am very confused and nervous as the last operation failed.
Even with the prism, I still have a noticeable head tilt. I have neck, back and shoulder pain which no one has been able to diagnose. I have only been told this year that I have congenital fourth nerve palsy. I find it very difficult to deal with stress. -- Regards, Alison
