Its BIH as you mentioned . Get her vision tested and make a chart of the same on regular visits and do perimetery assessment . See Neurologist who will put her on certain medications to reduce CSF production in brain. Her CSF pressure will also measured. Then see the response to medications in case she doesnt respond to medications or vision worsens then she may require ONF ie, optic nerve fenstration. But at first meet a Neurologist as early as possible.
