MS and your eyes
Double vision (diplopia)
- If your eyes aren't working perfectly together, then you may see double. a single object may appear as two objects.
- They may be side by side or one on top of another. Sometimes one of the images may appear tilted.
Involuntary eye movements (nystagmus)
- Many people with MS who have nystagmus don't realise they have it, as the movement has little or no effect on their vision.
- However, some people do notice a significant effect on their vision. Objects may seem to move back and forth, to jerk or to wiggle. This is known as oscillopsia
