Hi Miss Preet;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Your mother is suffering from Hypothyroid and the common symptoms are fatigue;weight gain;abnormal menstrual cycles;depression;brittle etc.So the problems of periods can be due to thyroid problem but the eye sight problem can be due to age so get her examined by a opthalmologist.

Since how long has she been taking thyrox25? If it is since long time then she might require slight dose adjustment . The hormonal problem is because of decrease in thyroid.
Besides the eye problem doesnt seem to be related to her thyroid and it is advisable to undergo an eye examination as early as possible..
Hope i have answered your query
