What's wrong with my eyes!?

It all began in the winter when I was in 6th grade. I was 11 years old. One day, during recess, this very large girl named Kim choked me with her purple scarf because I was annoying her. She never intended any harm to happen to me but some did. I don't even think that she realized I couldn't get any air in my lungs at all.

Anyways, my friend name Zack made her stop upon realizing what was happening. When she let go, I collapsed to the ground gasping for air. When I stood up, I was very dizzy which I thought was because of the lack of air to my head. That very so could've been the case but I called home and my parents picked me up. The dizziness went away for awhile but came back later that night when I was eating dinner with my family. I went and lied down on my couch and thought it was gone for good. But it kept coming back.

Now, I am 15 years old and I am in 10th grade but the ground or floor appears as if it is sloping. I'm not dizzy anymore but it looks like I'm looking downwards even when I'm looking straight ahead. The neurologists couldn't figure out what was happening and the doctors couldn't either. I'm left seeing everything slanting or sloping and I just want my life the way it used to be before that terrible day. Please help me.

What can cause sloping or slanting vision? Could it be caused from lack of air due to me being choked? I beg of anyone who sees this to please help me. I don't know where else to turn or what to do. Please don't ignore this. I'm not a religious person yet I have turned to prayer. Help, please.

Thanks to those who do.

Oh yes, I almost forgot to mention... light doesn't seem to help my vision problem. Computers, television, video games, fluorescent, candescent, etc. Even sunlight bothers me.

The most common cause would be a astigmatic refractive error, second would be corneal disease, third would be macular disease.

See an eye MD for an exam, have a Amsler grid test, corneal topography and a good refraction.

I don't mind you asking at all but I never got an actual head injury, just the lack air caused me to get dizzy and the dizziness faded but left me with this seemingly permanent slanting vision. I hope to God that it is not permanent.
