    Well, yes, acupuncture can do a good job to double vision. And generally speaking, for double vision, it is a condition in which, whenever you look at any object, you see its two images rather than one. And you should know that it is totally different from blurred vision, in which you see a single blurry and unclear image of an object. 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. Also, according to some researches, acupuncture can be good for many eye diseases, including double vision. So you can just apply it.

    Double vision is diplopia in another word, referring to two images formed from the same object. Possible triggers of this problem include corneal problem, lens problem, muscle problem, nerve problem and brain problem. Corneal infections, dryness and corneal scar can distort the light and cause double vision. And as to lens problem, for example, cataract might be trigger too. As to these problems above, it is usually a surgery adopted as treatment to cataract and corneal scarring. As to corneal infections and dryness, antibiotics and eye lubricants should be used. However, as to muscle, nerve and brain problem, acupuncture is a very good and safe way to treat. Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese therapy, with a long and thin silver needle pointed into acupuncture points on body. It is believed to break the blockage of Chi on human body and so promotes the blood circulation all over body. It provides a very good effect on muscles, nerves and brain disorder or imbalance. It is used to treat a stroke too. Have a try and it can surprise you.
