During the summer of 2015, I experienced right eye diplopia, which lasted for eight days.  The ophthalmologist said it was caused by 4th nerve palsy.  Then this month, February 2016, the right eye diplopia came back whenever I walked outside in temps of 20s and 30s.  Once I got back inside and warmed up, the diplopia went away almost immediately.  I did read that diplopia caused by cold temps can be related to blood vessel restriction brought on by the cold.
