Diagnosis of Double vision

Double vision that's new or unexplained requires immediate medical attention as it could be a sign of a potentially serious condition. Various tests are done to diagnose the cause for double vision like blood examination, a physical examination, and imaging studies like computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging(MRI).
