Caption: Hess test for diplopia. Charts showing the results of a Hess test to measure the extent of diplopia (double vision) in a patient. In the Hess test the patient's left and right eyes see two similar grids superimposed by angled mirrors. They are then asked to point out the grid's intersection points with a marker. These points give the blue crosses seen here. In a normal patient the results would be centred on each chart. The distortion in this example is caused by uncoordinated move- ments of the muscles controlling the eyeballs. The small black arrows pointing horizontally and vertically represent the eyeball's muscles.
