Your Eye M.D. will perform a complete medical eye examination to help determine what pattern your double vision fits and whether or not it is an isolated cranial nerve weakness.
If you have multiple microvascular cranial nerve palsies, involvement of the pupil, or have MCNP at a younger age, a neurologic exam and imaging study (such as CT, MRI scan, or angiogram) may be necessary.
Anyone diagnosed with MCNP should have their blood pressure and blood sugar checked to make sure they do not have diabetes or hypertension — key risk factors for MCNP.
