From the description given by you, it appears that your mother is suffering from some lenticular changes in the affected eye which causes the shadow in the vision. Initially this can be corrected with glasses but the change of glasses will be very frequent. In my opinion, you should visit an eye specialist instead of an optician and in case your mother is not able to carry out the routine activities of her life, she should go for a IOL implant.
