As your uncle had undergone craniotomy so quite possible there are some pressure induced changes on optic nerve i.e he is having field defects.So its better to consult any good neurophysician and neurophthalmologist and after having field test they can come on some conclusion.
take care

hello welcome to healthcaremagic, because of the incresed intracrianial pressure your uncles vision has got affected. As craniotomy has already been done i think his vision should improve provided his optic nerves are not damaged severly by the increased pressure when he had the haemorrhage.
