Diplopia treatment expectations


I have just finished 5 days of steroidal IV treatment for diplopia. I am not yet experiencing any improvement from that treatment as my double vision persists. Does anyone have any advice of what I might be able to do next to assist with the diplopia? Eye patch, exercises, other? Any positive suggestions from others’ most welcome. Thank you.

    Hello! I just went through this last December. I wore an eyepatch, but I was also having vertigo at the time and the patch seemed to make it worse. Ultimately, I underwent five days of steroid infusions, and my eyes finally returned to normal. I have heard that there are glasses that can help correct diplopia (Link below). If your eyes don’t straighten out soon, you might want to look into them. My heart goes out to you. I know how frustrating it can be!
