Brief Answer:
Neurological examination/MRI Brain/Ophthalmologist's opinion.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for being on healthcaremagic.com.

I am Dr.Ajay Panwar,a neurologist,here to answer your query.

Most likely the double vision,you are having is a complication of stroke and will,improve gradually over the months.
However,as the CT Brain is nornal,stroke is not confirmed as yet.MRI Brain may be needed for diagnosis.But presently,next step should be to visit a neurologist and an eye specialist for physical examination.Their opinion based on examination findings will be crucial.

If you have some follow up questions,I shall be glad to answer.
