Hello,

The lake water could have given her an eye infection.There could be water trapped inside the ear causing hearing loss.

It is better to show your daughter to an ophthalmologist if possible as soon as possible.If not possible show in the ER who can arrange one.

Keep her eyes padded in the meanwhile.

I hope this helps you take a decision

regards
