    Double Vision

    Hello Ive been dealing with my vertigo/dizziness for about 5 months now. It seems to progressively be getting better but I seem to notice that at times i have a slight bit of double vision. Especially when I see like white things on a black background or vice versa. I have already had a MRI ( or like half of one because I had an panic attack in the middle of it) but it came back negative and they obviously didnt think I needed another one. So theoretically I should be completely sure that I dont have a brain tumor or MS or really anythingg seriously wrong with me, but I see that double vision is a symptom of brain tumors. I am really worried about this. Has anyone else had double vision with their dizziness or know why it may occur. Should I really be worried?

    Thank You

    Cool Re: Double Vision

    Hi Walty

    Yep---I had that---it was not side-by-side---it was one slightly higher then the other scene---for me---what happened---was---since I do not use both eyes at the same time---do not have binocular vision---the brain had handled that---- integration---via a neuron pathway---when---this junk happened---the pathway was hosed up---took about two weeks to get it is not unusual for that(double vision) to happen---in a vestibular injury---one of the things ask about on all the Balance Center Q & A's

    ----did you have a vision prob & wore glasses prior to the injury??

    Re: Double Vision

    Hi Walty

    I havent had double vision but I have had a huge whack of visual perceptal problems as a result of the inner ear disorder.

    I am currently getting visual therapy to help with the visual side of things.

    Might be worth a go!

    Re: Double Vision

    Walty: I get double vision with this. However, it's not a perceptive double vision, it's because my eyes go out of whack (ie they keep pointing in different directions - so unsuprisingly I get double vision). In my case I think it partly has something to do with the eye muscles being overworked thanks to the dodgy vestibular stuff, so they tire and partly because the brain usually does a good job at hiding it - now it's tied up dealing with this vestibular stuff and less efficient.

    Star is right... it is to be expected to suffer any amount of visual perception problems (creeping, breathing, flashes, sparks, oscilliations, bouncing, eye strain, bluring, stars, fuzziness, floaters etc) partly because the vestibular stuff shakes up you vision, and partly because a lot of this stuff happens normally but your brain does a good job of filtering it out, however while trying to compensate your brain will be less efficient at dealing with these problems so they become much more apparent and bothersome.

    I hope that helps.

    Same as crazylabyrinth. I don't get double vision, but I do get fuzzy vision, eye straining, jiggly eyes etc.

    Re: Double Vision

    Hi, I get double vision during an "attack". My attacks are episodic and are typically spinning vertigo, sometimes with a very noticeable double vision component (vertical -- one item is sitting on top of the other) and at other times just the spins and movement. As time goes on, I've noticed more double vision. Scary, but I've gotten "used to it". Penny
