    Do exercises work correcting the double vision problem? The choices using
    Google are very many, some requiring payment, and those free I looked at so
    far with little exercise description detail. I DLed several web pages to my
    printer and will review them when I get time. Can anyone possibly suggest a
    site they've had success with?

    I'm not a doctor, and I don't play one on the internet. Having said
    that, I would think that the most important fact to know is, what is
    causing your double vision? I had double vision for several years when
    wearing glasses. My doctor told me this would happen, and the solution
    was to wear contacts. This was back before there were contacts that you
    could wear all the time, so I had the problem of what to do between the
    time I took them out and the time I went to bed (I put them in first
    thing in the morning, so didn't have a problem then). I just saw
    double. After some time (a couple of years, as I remember), I just got
    used to it. My brain blocked the image from one eye, and I just used
    the other. After some time, I had cataract surgery in the other eye, so
    they matched, and I had no more double vision.
