Post diplopia surgery issue.

( 43 y/o Latino Male ):Hello, I've had 2 surgeries for diplopia, last was on June 2010. Results are weak eye aims on both sides depending on the way my eyes are turned.. My question truly pertains to my strong good dominate left eye, I realize it is taking the brunt of the work and for over a year it is blurry, so in my world as I see an obect I have to see the floating image to clear out the image, scary because the floating image isn't stationary, so things like driving have become very tricky... Has anyone ever heard of this before, I understand things will not get better and that's the cards I was delt with so I'll ride it out, just curious if anyone else has this excat issue..
Thank you for any responses....

Was your diplopia the result of III, IV or VI nerve palsy? I'm not sure I understand what you're seeing post surgery. Are you seeing a stationary image and a moving ghost image that floats away from the main image along a horizontal/vertical axis??
