Ophthalmologist 's  Response
It seems from the history that she is having lump behind and below ear associated with blurring of vision and headache. The lump is probably because of enlarged lymph nodes as a result of infection or inflammation in there drainage area.
Hence she needs evaluation by a eye doctor to rule out any inflammation and which may be a cause for her blurred vision also.

Thank you
