Is it possible to have double vision two weeks after botox injections?


I am experiencing double vision after Botox injections. If this is related to the injections, is it temporary? How long will this side effect last?


Unfortunately, the drug (Botox) may have leaked out into the muscles that move the eyeball itself. Fortunately, the effect of the double vision should be gone when the Botox wears off in 3 to 4 months. Make sure to return to the practitioner who performed your procedure for an examination and explanation. Then, consider a consult with an ophthalmologist about your diploplia ( Double Vision ) to rule out other causes/ etiology’s. Unfortunately, if the diploplia was caused by the Botox you may be best to wear a patch over one of your eyes until the effect of the drug resolves. Best,
