    As i know, pinched nerve can also cause double vision. Your eyes are controlled by nervous system, and if there are any problem in your nervous system, binocular muscle action is not coordinated. For example, if right lateral rectus muscle shrinks, left medial rectus muscle shrinks slowly or the force of contraction is not enough, then, it will cause double vision.

    Yes, pinched nerves will cause double vision. When your nerves are pressured to some degree, your eyes nerves will be affected too. You will have the blurry vision and double vision. You'd better keep the good mood to treat your pinched nerve to make yourself keep healthy. That is very important. You could also use some eye drops to moisture the eyes.
