Diplopia – Wikipedia

Globe Fibrous tunic Sclera Scleritis Episcleritis. She cannot adduct, elevate or depress the right eye fully.

Raised intracranial pressure can cause sixth nerve palsy presumably from mechanical stretching of the nerve; thus, many cases may actually have bilateral, but asymmetric, sixth nerve palsy. The contralateral eye may show nystagmus in abduction and ocular dysmetria. Patients with long-standing, stable strabismus for more than 6 to 12 months could consider strabismus surgery. Neuroanatomy through Clinical Cases. In patients with spasm of the near reflex, there is variable esotropia and abduction.

Most patients have a visible maculopathy, but others may simply note metamorphopsia on Amsler grid testing. In general, patients with Duane syndrome do not complain of diplopia. Although she has right upper lid ptosis requiring the examiner to hold the lid open, the ptosis does not occur until midway through the examination. Close inspection of the pupils shows that they are equal in size. The main treatment objective in patients with binocular diplopia is to create the largest and most central area of single binocular vision.


Evaluation and Management

This approach is outlined in the article on diplopia occurring in association with a condition called horror fusionis. For the most part, patients with monocular diplopia do not warrant a neurologic evaluation since a careful ophthalmic evaluation will reveal the cause see Table 1.

In other cases, aniseikonia from anisometropia leads to disparate-sized images from each eye and the perception of dd. Hence, in some cases diplopia disappears without medical intervention, but in other cases the cause of the double vision may still be present.

Are you a health professional able to prescribe or dispense drugs? Thus, when the eyes are misaligned, the brain will perceive two images of one target object, as the target object simultaneously stimulates different, non-corresponding, retinal areas in either eye, thus producing double vision.

In addition to a thorough ophthalmologic examination, specific attention should be directed to eyelid position, orbicularis oculi strength, facial sensation, and exophthalmometry. A common cause of acquired fourth nerve palsy is head trauma, which should be identified by history.

The mean age was These noninvasive techniques identify aneurysms as small as 3 to 5 mm. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and qualitative measure of the journal’s impact. One of the first steps in diagnosing diplopia is often to see whether one of two major classifications may be eliminated: Double Maddox rod testing and funduscopy show excyclotorsion of the ipsilateral eye Figure 4a.


[Strabismus and diplopia after refractive surgery].

Thyroid eye disease TED is a common cause binoccular diplopia in adults. Intracranial lesions may mimic a vasculopathic oculomotor cranial nerve palsy in patients older than 50, but it is unclear whether early neuroimaging is truly indicated in this group of patients. Lastly, scleral buckling can induce a myopic shift in the affected eye leading to anisometropia and aniseikonia.

Monocular occlusion appears to be the sole therapy in most instances. Doctors may use blood tests, physical exams, computed tomography CT or magnetic resonance imaging MRI to find the underlying cause.

While this ability to suppress might seem an entirely positive adaptation to strabismus, in the developing child this can prevent the proper development of vision in the affected eye resulting in amblyopia.

In decreasing order of frequency, the medial, superior, and lateral recti may also be affected. Ductions are full without evidence of abduction deficit. Frontoethmoidal osteoma with orbital extension.
