Double vision (diplopia) and convergence insufficiency

Double vision, also known as diplopia, is a condition where a person experiences seeing two images instead of one. A situation that can be confusing and affect the quality of life. Convergence insufficiency problems and double vision are two vision-related issues that are often linked to each other.

Convergence insufficiency problems occur when the eyes do not work together effectively. This can be due to a variety of causes, such as eye muscle imbalance, differences in the refractive error of the eyes, or neurological problems. When the eyes do not cooperate properly it can lead to seeing two images. 

An improved eye coordination can help you

Imvi Labsin collaboration with researchers from Karolinska Institutet has developed a method where you train your eyesight by watching movies in VR. The eye coordination training relieves pressure on the brain and improves the brain’s coordination of eye movements. For those with diplopia, this can mean that the double vision disappears altogether.

"Due to a severe concussion, I started to see double which made reading and focusing difficult. Thanks to Imvi Labs, it is now completely gone. It has really improved my quality of life. "

"After a stroke, I had diplopia and a reduced field of vision. Now the problems have disappeared, the field of vision is back, my memory has improved and I have more energy."

Diplopia

Diplopia is a condition in which a person sees two images of a single object. This can be a sudden, temporary or more permanent change in vision that affects everyday life in many ways. The double image can be horizontal, vertical or diagonal, depending on the direction in which the double images differ from each other. It can affect one or both eyes. When it affects only one eye it is called monocular double vision, and when it affects both eyes it is called binocular double vision.

Symptom

Common symptoms of diplopia are

  • Overlapping images: The experience of seeing two images of an object, either side by side, on top of each other, or a combination of both.
  • Difficulties with depth perception: Problems judging distances correctly, which can make it difficult to perform tasks such as driving a car or pouring liquids.
  • Eye fatigue: The eyes can get tired quickly, especially during activities that require focused vision, such as reading or computer work.
  • Headaches: Recurrent headaches may occur, often as a result of straining to focus or compensate for double vision.
  • Squinting or squinting: Try to reduce double vision by squinting or squinting to improve focus.
  • Sensitivity to light: Increased sensitivity to light or discomfort in bright environments.

Sudden double vision

Those who suffer from sudden double vision naturally wonder what it is. This of course varies from case to case. Two common causes when diplopia occurs suddenly are brain trauma, such as concussion or stroke. It is very common seeing double after stroke
