my 77 year old father was having double vision and went to his eye doctor who told him he had cholesterol in his eyes and immediately rushed him to the hospital and has been undergoing tests all night as they do not know what has caused this. i am looking for more information on cholesterol in the eyes.

My husband has developed double vision. If he closes one eye or the other, he can see clearly but when he opens both eyes at the same time, that is when double vision occurs. He can read up close with his glasses and no double vision. They suspected thyroid which was a slight problem and is now medicated with no change. He has type 2 diabetes which resulted in oral medication being doubled but in looking up the medication - could cause blurred vision but does not mention double vision. He will see a specialist on Wednesday but I have been trying to rule out other possibilities. Thank you

It seems you've experienced a PSVT short for paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia.
You need to attend a cardiology clinic and get an echo and a 24 hr holter study done to exclude that as a cause..

Hello,

Bulging cervical disks anatomically are unrelated to double vision therefore, if you are having headaches that are being accompanied by the double vision I would be concerned for a different process that could be going on.

Having said that it is possible that the bulging disks themselves...
