concerned about eye damage

My fiance was hit in the eye at work and went blind for about 6 months , now she can see , after that she had a very small stroke after test said there was very little bleeding in the brain that she would recover , well she is now paralyzed from the waist down and her left arm so my question is could all of this have been caused from trauma to her eye.... And if you could point me in the right direction to the right forum so I maybe can re-post this there...

It is difficult to give an opinion without knowing the complete medical history and results of neurological exam.
There is a chance that she may have sustained another stroke after the first one. I would suggest you to get her complete neurological evaluation done along with tests like MRI and CT scan of brain.

Let us know if you have more questions.
