Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query.

Diplopia is double vision and blurry vision is refractive error. For monocular vision there is no problem but diplopia binocular vision is lost. It can be anisometropia with difference of more then 2 diopter or amblyopia in one eye can cause diplopia. The good vision is accepted by brain and inferior vision is suppressed. Projection of eye will be for good vision. If there is severe astigmatism in one eye then the other eye may not have good vision so its vision is suppressed or there will be diplopia. It can be presbyopia which needs correction. Duration of your problem and age has not been given if possible send detail information. Check for cataract which may be the cause for diplopia.

I have monocular vision (one eye is a prosthesis ). I get ocular migraine in my eye and lately I m getting them more often. I am 62 years old. Should I be concerned that it s more than just an aura? I lost my right eye to an enucleation, indicated by a fast=growing tumor which turned out to be only a cystoma on my optic nerve . I also have an AVM. I m just sort of concerned about my good eye, and also about possibility of brain aneurysm . thank you.
