Myasthenia Gravis (MG), is an autoimmune condition where antibodies attack receptors of muscles causing them not to work appropriately. This may cause the eye muscles to tire sooner than normal and subsequently cause a double image. Blood tests can sometimes confirm this diagnosis, but in certain cases even with normal labs, someone can have MG confined to the eye and a trial of medications may prove useful.
