Thank you so much for your reply.
It appears that she is experiencing the distortion symptoms of cornea dryness
and/or residual inflammation and eye fatigue due to the the URI and sinus pressure. This is not harmful. This can cause a transient change in the refractive error of the eye. It may be neccessary, if not better in 1 week, to exclude that her eye pressure is within normal limits - my guess is that her eye pressure is okay, except for the residual inflammation around her left eye causing image distortion and eye ache and focusing difficult.
This should resolve in 1-2 weeks. To speed the recovery, I suggest that she use preservative free tear drop such as Refresh or Genteal drop 4 times daily, and over the counter Zaditor eye drops twice daily for 2 weeks. After these has resolve, then she can follow-up with her eye doctor for re-check for new glasses. If this fails to significantly improve in 1 week or worsen, then I suggest that she follow-up with her eye doctor for closer evaluation.
