Intermittent blurred vision in 13 yr old. 20/20 vision

My daughter had her tonsils and adenoids (adenoids) removed a month ago. She started having brief moments of complete blackness two weeks post surgery. It would happen once to twice a day and last 2-10 seconds. I thought it was due to the pain medicine but when she had been off the meds for a week and was still having the problem, I took her to an Ophthalmologist.  He said her vision was 20/20 and he didn't see anything abnormal. He referred us to a Pediatric Neurologist and suggested a CT scan. The scan showed nothing. Her vision problem has now changed to something different. She no longer has the complete darkness but instead has intermittent blurred vision every few minutes. This happens throughout the day and it has made it near impossible for her to read or enjoy doing anything.   She sees 20/20 and the next minute her vision is so blurred she can't see 5" tall words on a poster. She has been to the Neurologist who suggested she had inflamed arteries and recommended she take an anti-inflamitory. As of yet, we have seen no changes. She is also extremely sensitive to light, sounds and smells right now. Any help in getting to the bottom of this is appreciated.
