Hi, i'm not exactly sure if this will answer your question.. But in 1999 i recieved a bone marrow transplant.. and after i recovered they told me i would have a few side effects. One of them happend to be my vision. It wasn't really bad, but i have cateracts(sp?) But i have had one removed. I'm not sure if that answered your question. but i think it depends on the kind of meds she would be taking.

When my hemoglobin dropped to 7, my vision was bad early in the morning - like everything was sort of dark. It went away when I had been up for a couple of hours. I was having trouble with my vision about two years ago, but I was tested for B-12 and was low. I have been taking B-12 shots, and I believe it has helped my vision.
