4th Cranial Nerve Palsy, Double Vision

Posted by SusanEllen66 @SusanEllen66, Jan 25, 2022

I have 4th cranial nerve palsy because my eye surgeon damaged it during cataract surgery. I have double vision vertically when I look in certain directions.
There’s no cure,
Anyone else?

I do. Mine started about two months after cataract surgery. When did yours? I read an article that said some people have a congenital weakness of the 4th cranial nerve that doesn’t show up until after cataract surgery. Have you seen other doctors? My double vision began when I had a headache for 4 days. My vision was blurry and then double vision began. I went to ER and had several tests and was referred to a neurologist who sent me for another MRI with contrast. I’m supposed to go back to neurologist in about 10 days to hear from the MRI. I was told my vision might get better on it’s own (it is better) and that it can be corrected with prisms in glasses in it doesn’t go away.
