How is Microvascular Cranial Nerve Palsy treated?

There is no way to speed the natural recovery time for MCNP. Double vision may be treated by patching either eye. If the double vision persists, it may be possible to use prism glasses or to consider eye muscle surgery if recovery has not been complete. Anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen (Advil® or Motrin®) may help if there is associated pain with MCNP. It is important to make sure that blood pressure and blood sugar are adequately controlled.

It is very important to tell your doctor if you have new symptoms of double vision or if your double vision fails to resolve. Risk factors that increase the chance of microvascular cranial nerve palsy (such as diabetes, high blood pressure and smoking) also increase your risk of stroke. It is important that your doctor check to make sure that any risk factors you have be reduced or treated.
