In Reply to: Re: Double vision.... posted by Dianne on May 25, 2000 at 01:39:24:

Hi. Sorry I'm new to this, but in your message I couldn't find your age. Monocular Diplopia (double vision seen only when one eye is closed) can also be from cataracts (opacification of the lens in the eye). You may have some lens opacification or showing some signs of a cataract starting in that eye. Although this is more commonly seen in the elderly population. Steroidal medications can hasten the speed of cataract growth depending on the dosage of the medication. The light that enters the eye "splits" rather than focus properly on to the back of the eye with lens opacities (not quite at the cataract stage). Patients are often affected by glare as well as double vision.
