Brief Answer:
take her to emergency now

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
this could be the sign of a stroke. the swish noise is not specific but to have this visual loss may mean that something serious is going on in her brain. She needs to go to emergency and be evaluated immediately.
This may be reversible but may be permanent if she is not seen right away.
Do not delay, get her to emergency now.
