Post Concussion Vision Issues

I was involved in a bike/auto accident 2 months ago where I ran into an oncoming van that had turned in front of me.  The front right side of my head/face took most of the force into the side of the van.  I was knocked out briefly and taken to the hospital.  Brain/face CT came back clear. Have been diagnosed with Post Concussion Syndrome. Am still dealing with executive function problems with specific issues with visual scanning.

Since my accident, I've been experiencing narrowed focus for both near and far objects.  My peripheral vision seems fine, but have to make an effort to focus on objects.  I have trouble focusing on the "big picture" if that makes sense.  It feels like my right eye is working harder than the left.  During exercise with elevated heart rate my right eye feels as there's an increase in eye pressure in the right eye.

Up till this point, I've seen my general physician and a neuropsychologist.  Should I be seeking an ophthalmologist as well?

I had fallen and gotten a concussion in July,. (hitting the front of my head and also the back of my head when I fell). I went to my Dr. 4 days later due to the pressure and pain in my head shea dignosed I have Post Concussion Syndrome. I had a ct scan and it came back clear.  I now have continious pressure in my eyes and in my nasal area. My Dr. did nto prescribe or recommend anything. I had taken an over the counter medication and it eased the pressure its back with a vengence.. Please help, is there anything I am able to take or be suggested to take by presciption? no tylenol nor ibuprofen does not ease the pain (not touching it)
