You should take her to a General Surgeon immediately as she requires investigations to rule out intracranial post traumatic lesions.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic
Since there is a history of head injury it is necessary to consult a Neurophysician.
The history of blurred vision makes it immediate necessity to get a MRI done to evaluate the damage caused by the head injury.
Kindly get her to a ER or hospital for the same.

I am sorry about your child. Go to a neurologist at the earliest, tell him what happened exactly and what the child is feeling. Child MUST have a CT scan or MRI of head. Best of luck.
