Yes, funny that, that’s what my eye consultant said years ago, when I was having all kinds of weird and wonderful things happening to my eye’s. I took it, that his diagnosis of ‘dry eye’ meant (sorry I’m guessing by the size of your file you’re a nut job, I can’t be bothered looking into what’s wrong with you, take these drops!). I think they hope you’ll just go away and not come back. Luckily my more recent Neuro-Opthalmologist wasn’t as flippant.
I would suggest you take the drops and if things don’t improve (which I’m guessing they haven’t), the next time it happens, consider these things:
If safe, shut one eye, do you still have double/triple vision ?
Now shut the other eye, does it affect 1 eye or both eye’s ?
Are they both affected at the same time, to the same degree ?
Is the extra image above or alongside the original ?
Are you hungry, or have you just eaten ?
Could you be dehydrated ?
Have you noticed any possible trigger ?
All this information is relevant and you need to be armed with as much of it as possible when you go again. If you are still getting double vision with one eye shut (as I do), then it could indicate it’s your brain and not your eye, (I’m no specialist mind, I just have an interest, as I also get double vision, not triple vision).
