Should I be concerned about this brief moment of double vision earlier?

I was looking at the computer earlier when my eyes suddenly felt tight. It felt as if one or both eyes were spasming. My vision became strange, and I walked downstairs to a mirror. In the mirror, it looked like I had two rows of eyes. My vision seemed to be "stacked," one set of eyes atop the other. After about two minutes, the double vision disappeared.
I've been having dry, itchy eyes lately. My eyes have felt very tired. While I haven't had full double vision before, I have had two previous incidents where one eye seemed to be spasming. Both instances occurred after looking at a computer screen. In those instances, my eyes felt crossed, and I couldn't seem to read things up close. The "double vision" disappeared within a minute.
-I wear glasses, though I usually don't wear them when viewing things up close.
-I spend my entire day at work staring at a computer.
-I've had occasional pressure on my temples and sinuses for the past couple of weeks.
-My vitamin D levels are low, but everything else is okay.
During the double vision, I didn't feel particularly dizzy or nauseous. I didn't have a headache. I'm having a bit of sinus pressure, and the immediate right of my right eye feels kind of sore.
I put aside the other instances of my eyes "crossing" because I thought my eyes were just tired. Was this more of the same? Could it be due to allergies and sinus pressure? I have a doctor's appointment next month. Should I bring this up then?
