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 . 4 days ago Objective: To present a report of the ocular motility disorders, treatment and outcomes of myasthenia gravis (MG). Material and method: A. Monocular diplopia is double vision in one eye only, and is much less common than binocular diplopia. A diplopia 1 monocular pode ser causada, entre outras.

These patients may be good candidates for monovision or contact lenses.

Monocular diplopia is double vision in one eye only, and is much less common than binocular diplopia. Other patients suffer from surgical trauma to the EOMs after peribulbar injections or superior rectus bridle sutures. In contrast, restrictive ophthalmoplegia generally demonstrates normal saccadic velocity.

However, in this systemically well patient with absent orbital signs, no erythema, pain or swelling diplopka normal blood markers we did not feel treatment with intravenous antibiotics was indicated at presentation. The evaluation of binocular diplopia begins with examining the saccades and pursuit of the eyes individually ductions and together versions.

In early TED, imaging may be normal. This complication was much more common with the early Baerveldt implants than with the Ahmed or Molteno implants. The diagnosis can be confirmed with pharmacological testing with topical apraclonidine, causing dilation of the affected pupil due to denervation hypersensitivity of the iris dilator muscle.

Close inspection of the pupils shows that they are equal in size. Other mimickers of fourth nerve palsy include skew deviation, myasthenia gravis, and thyroid eye disease. The appropriate treatment for binocular diplopia will depend upon the cause of the condition producing monocuular symptoms.

Ophthalmoplegia secondary to a neuropathy, myopathy, or neuromuscular junction disorder reveals slowed saccades. Thus, those with childhood strabismus almost never complain idplopia diplopia while adults who develop strabismus almost always do.


Some patients prefer monocular occlusion, as Fresnel d often require repeated modification. Occasionally, patients may choose to adopt a head tilt eg, fourth nerve palsyhead turn eg, sixth nerve palsyor chin-up position eg, thyroid eye disease to utilize both eyes and eliminate diplopia.

Extraocular motility demonstrates slowed or impaired adduction. In diplpia, patients with Duane syndrome do not complain of diplopia. With monovision correction, forcing the nondominant eye to fixate fixation switch diplopia does not lead to a suppression scotoma in the dominant eye and the patient develops double vision.

These finding were in keeping with an inflammatory diolopia of the superior rectus and levator palpabrae superioris. Third Oculomotor Cranial Nerve Palsy The third cranial nerve innervates four EOMs superior, inferior, and medial xausas, and inferior obliqueone eyelid muscle levator palpebrae superiorisand monoculad intraocular muscles d sphincter and ciliary muscle.

Abstract A year-old man presented with a 2-day history of acute onset painless left ptosis. If the patient can see singly fuse centrallythen this is a positive test indicating dragged-fovea diplopia syndrome. Unilateral ptosis due to isolated levator myositis. This can be subtle and must be carefully examined.

In other cases, aniseikonia from anisometropia leads to disparate-sized images from each eye and the perception of diplopia. Rinsho Shinkeigaku ; Thus, when the eyes are misaligned, two different objects will be perceived as superimposed in the same space. Imaging modalities include ultrasonography, CT and T2-weighted MRI, showing enlarged muscle bellies with thickened tendons vs tendon sparing in thyroid eye diseasewith low internal reflectivity on ultrasound and enhancement with contrast on CT 8 and MRI.

Long-standing, stable misalignment may warrant surgery in patients intolerant of prisms. For other uses, see Double vision disambiguation.

Patients younger than 9 should alternate occlusion because of the risk monlcular amblyopia. The pupil is described separately as spared or involved. Lastly, scleral buckling can induce a myopic shift in the affected eye leading to anisometropia and aniseikonia.

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. Patients note vertical, oblique, or torsional diplopia worse in downgaze, and they often adopt a contralateral head tilt to counteract the diplopia. Infobox medical condition new.


A common cause of acquired fourth nerve palsy is head trauma, which should be identified by history. A restrictive process can be verified with forced ductions if a substantial ductional deficit is present. Provenance and peer review: The “lights on-off test” is a very reliable test for this syndrome. Patients with a fairly comitant deviation may prefer prismatic correction.

Monocylar eye disease TED is a common cause of diplopia in cxusas. C over-uncover testing distinguishes phorias from tropias, whereas alternating cross-cover and Maddox rod testing Figure 1 reveals the full deviation of tropia plus latent phoria.

If these tests return negative and clinical suspicion remains high, then conventional catheter angiography should be ordered. 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. Repetitive stimulation electromyography EMG shows a decrement of the action potential in patients with MG.

In some cases, a silicone element can transect and disinsert the EOM. The twominute approach to monocular diplopia is intended as a quick screening test for initial localization of pathologies.

In this sense double vision is neither dangerous nor harmful, and may even be enjoyable. D ICD – Serum ACE was normal and acetylcholine receptor antibodies were negative. Neuroimaging should be considered because bilateral sixth nerve palsies, mass lesions, and demyelinating disease may present with the clinical findings of divergence insufficiency.
