Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

one of the eyes having astigmatism. That is why she is unable to see clearly even with specs. Dark glass which will help neutralize hypersensitive to light. So put on dark colored glass when she goes out.

Hope this helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
