    Well, yes, chemo can just cause double vision in some degree. First, you should know that chemotherapy is a common treatment for many cancers, and it involves the use of drugs to kill cancer cells. While chemotherapy drugs target fast-growing cells, it can just have some side effects on our body. For example, it will just cause depression, seizures, headache, confusion and fever. Also, because of the effects on cranial nerves, it will just affect the vision, leading to blurred or double vision. By the way, watery eyes can be possible too. So take control of using it.
