I have double vision in one eye, but also am having a sinus problem on the same side. Is this normal? Could the sinuses be affecting my vision? It also gets worse when I go out in the cold.

It doesn't seem likely that the sinuses can affect the vision. You can visit an ophthalmologist to check your eyes.
