Detailed Answer:
Hello

After going through the medical details provided by you i understand your concern and i would like to tell you that considering his age group and the the type of symptoms he is having its important to take him to an ER as soon possible so as to avoid long term and serious adverse effects.

As few tests will be required right away like imaging study of brain to find out the possible cause for his double vision as well as some other blood tests.

So its advisable to take him to hospital as soon possible.

Hope to have been helpful.

Kind Regards
