Hello,
please consult neurophysician and neurophthalmologist as soon as possible having double vision and squint indicates some nerve involvement .It may be because of diabetes causing some cranial nerve palsy or some intracranial pathology .AFter consulting you can go for CT or MRI BRAIN SCAN.

SUDDEN DOUBLE VISION(DIPLOPIA) WITHOUT ANY HISTORY OF HEADINJURY ,ABSCENCE OF ANY OTHER SIGNS MAY BE THE RESULT OF EXCESS STRESS ON EYES OR REFRACTIVE ERRORS,THEY CAN ALSO BE DUE TO SIDE EFFECT OF CERTAIN DRUGS LIKE ANTIHYPERTENSIVES.STOP ANY DRUG IF YOU ARE TAKING,USE STRESS REMOVAL TECHNIQUES ,AND GET YOUR REFRACTIVE ERROR CORRECTED,IT MUST ALSO BE KNOWN THAT HYPERTENSION PRODUCES BOTH THE SYMPTOM SO GET YOUR B.P CHECKED.
AVOID SELF MEDICATION OR OVER THE COUNTER DRUGS.

With so many medical findings, it is natural to have insomnia. A glass of milk at night and a capsule of Tagara should help her.

Hi
Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum

Insomnia, blurred and double vision are neurological symptoms (related to nervous system) .Appearance of neurological symptoms required medical attention. Please visit a neurologist or talk to her oncologist/oncosurgeon.
