    Well, so sorry to see that your eyes have suffered so much from those problems. Anyway, as you can see, sometimes diplopia could be resulted from a wide variety of reasons, such as the problem with your eye muscle, as well as something with your cranial nerve . So, since your problem is quite complicated in some way. You should carefully check your eyes in the hospital. Also, try to protect your eyes as much as possible.

    It is so bad for you to suffer the diplopia after the strabismus. In normal retinal correspondence, an object will fall in separate big retinal which is not the corresponding point. It will cause the eyes to appear the single visual, not the two objects under the prerequisite of normal eye sight. The dominant eye rotational has six muscles. As long as there is one or a few inflammation trauma or neurological disorder, the eyes muscle action is not in harmonious action. There may appear the right straight muscle contraction and left medial rectus muscle contraction. The slow or contraction force is not enough. And the rotation of the eye will be limited. The eye may pull to one side, forming strabismus. Then you will see things particularly difficult. Or an object can be thought of as two, causing inspect content double image. You will get the diplopia. You could wear the glasses to correct your symptom. However, if you want to cure it fully, you could accept the surgery which will be effective and safe. You should firstly find the exact reason and treat it carefully.

    Well, generally speaking, diplopia, which is named as double vision, is a condition in which, whenever you look at any object, you see its two images rather than one. It is totally different from blurred vision, in which you see a single blurry and unclear image of an object. And for your situation, you may be infected. As we know that after eye surgery, it is easy to get infection. In that way, it is possible to have double vision. When it occurs, pain around the eyes, such as in the temples or eyebrows may happen. For your situation, you can wear an eye patch or special prism glasses to minimize the effect of double vision. Also, just find out the infection cause and have some medical cares. You should pay more attention to it, for it can severely harm your decision-making capacity and quite often, if you insist on driving, put others as well as yours life at risk.
