My son who is 9 woke up this morning feeling dizzy and he had to hold onto the wall and he said he sees three of everything. I had him follow a pen I moved it to the right his eyes went to the left and I moved it to the left his eyes went right I moved it up eyes went down moved it down eyes went up. I took him to the doctor and she didn't know what to make of it so she sent him to a eye doctor who told me he's making it up his eyes r fine. I don't know what to think. Y son was scared this morning u could hear his voice trembling. Anyone ever had this?

I used to get those as a child. It was something to do with fluid in my ears getting disrupted.
Take him to an ENT doctor to get checked if he does it again.

Get him an full MRI. It can be fluid, inflammation, migraines. After MRI see a Neurologist, ENT, Rheumy. I suggest teaching hospitals, as you have every kind of doctor you need in one location, plus state of art medical equipment and training.

In the mean time, as I have triple vision myself, tell him to go for the one in the middle. Its always the middle vision that is the real one.

I do not want to alarm you, but mine is perm.. I have two inflammation tumors pressing against my optical nerves. There is good inflammation, and bad inflammation obviously mine is the bad. My tumors are rare, caused from a rare autoimmune disease. It is unlikely your son has tumors, but that is why I said a MRI. MRIs will show any inflammation, sinus problems, fluid, so on.
The thing that helped me with my eye vision is at first I wore eye patches. I told kids I was a pirate and turned it into a game LOL. Then, I became stable enough for the rheumy and eye surgeon to put a detachable plastic prism on my eyeglasses. The prism takes my 3 and puts it into one.

I hope this helps...
