What is Diplopia


Do you know the meaning of diplopia? I think some of us don’t know about the term. It is a disease on eye that referred to as double vision. The disease may be result of refractive error, where light from an object is split into two images by a defect in the eye’s optical system. It also may result from failure of both eyes to point at the object being viewed, a condition referred to as ocular misalignment. There’s mistake from people that though double and blurred vision are the same. For blurred vision, a single image seen by one eye appears unclear while in double vision, two images are seen at the same time creating understandable confusion for anyone who has it.
