Double vision, pain in the left eye, blue,purple colours and a black spot in the eye. Reason?

My mother has been having issues with her left eye. She had an exam which was normal. The next day, she had some eye pain and then developed double vision in one eye. Her opthalmologist would not see her but instead sent her to the ER. They performed a CT scan and found nothing. Ident her to another opthalmologist who thought the problem was related to high blood pressure , but he was not sure. He said her eyes were healthy. She is unable to see clearly with the left eye. I suggested that she cover the lens of her glasses over that eye, which seems to help a little. She recently developed some blue or purple colors in the eye, and then a black spot. That has gotten a little better. Any thoughts?

Ophthalmologist 's  Response
your mother seems to develop paresis of extraocular muscle might be due to 6th nerve involvement
as ct scan is normal dont worry
control her bp and bld sugar
start tab. neurobion
routinely paresis resolve by 6 month on its own till then you can continue with alternate day eye patching
also exercise eyes by moving it in all direction which will prevent any contracture of muscles
take care and you can ask future queries
