Diplopia is the condition where one can view 2 images at the same time instead of one image and is known to be referred as to as double-vision. The term diplopia came from 2 Greek words diplous, means double and ops, means eye. Diplopia is often the first exemplification of many systemic disorders, particularly muscular or neurologic processes. A faultless, clear explanation of the symptoms (Example: Constant or intermittent; variable or unchanging; at near or at far; with one eye [monocular] or with both eyes [binocular]; horizontal, vertical, or oblique) is critical to applicable diagnosis and management.
