It seems your wife has BP probably high BP ,this can produce blurring of vision secondary to 2 causes either BP itself (malignant hypertension) or is it optic nerve ischemia.She requires detailed
evaluation by neurologist as optic nerve has been affected.She needs MRI brain with orbital cuts with contrast for confirming disease and to r/o demyelinating disorder and PRES.(Posterior reversible leucoencephalopathy common after pregnancy associated with BP)Treatment plan depends on further clinical and radiological evaluation.Condition is treatable and immediate consultation needed.
