Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

This could mean Transient ischemic Attacks.
Neurological examination, MRI brain and MRA (MRI Angiography) of the blood vessels supplying the brain may clinch..

The eyes should be looked into - for glaucoma....

An arrhythmia (slow rate here) could be causative. ECG, Holter and ECHOcardiography may shed light.

It doesn't sounds like a complicated problem to diagnose or treat.
Take her to a doctor.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
