Thank you for your question. 

It's difficult to say without an assessment. I'd recommend booking an appointment with your skilled and qualified injector, as well as with an ophthalmologist. 

All the best.

Thank you for your question. Sorry for your discomfort. I would recommend seeing an opthamologist and treating physician for an in-person assessment.

Double vision following Botox injections.

Thank you for sharing your question. It is unlikely that the Botox injections have caused your symptoms since the injections were two weeks prior to initial problems. See an Oculoplastic Surgeon who will be able to tell you if the injections are the cause of your vision issues. You might need to see a neurologist. Feel better.

Patients who treat with Botox in the upper face and  are concern of possible side effects or reactions to the treatment (e.g. double vision, etc) should follow up with the licensed doctor or nurse that performed the injections or possibly with an ophtalmologist.

Hello again, I have updated my answer with a web reference to better answer your question.

Hi aaron3209. Sorry to hear about your discomfort.  While the muscles that balance your eyes, help them move together both side to side & up and down, are not the target muscles with cosmetic botox injections, they may have been affected.  You should have a consultation with an opthamologist and your injector for evaluation and treatment.  Good luck!
