Just a thought, the neuro could help with the double vision, but besides an opthalmologist, depending on what the neuro finds, you may end up needing to see a neuroopthalmologist who deals with the nervous system and eyes together. If you do have lupus in your nervous system, prednisone is known not to help, but the neuro can make the diagnosis if it is sometimes. You just may need more suppression until the flare is over too. Hope you feel better soon.
