Hi to all,
I have been suffering from vision issues post-op from AN surgery, and from a related forum topic I think I'm not alone.  I started vestibular rehab as soon after surgery as I was allowed to, and this seems to be the main place people are sent with visual issues.  It helped a lot with my balance and some with my visual issues, but I was impatient because my visual issues were preventing me from returning to work.  Looking at a computer screen causes nausea and headaches, and being a PhD student trying to write up my dissertation, I need to be able to use the computer.  Bothering my vestibular therapist and neurologist with a million questions I found out about neurological vision rehab, a rehab I didn't know existed.  I got an evaluation, and sure enough, my eyes were not tracking exactly together and various other things were neurologically going wrong.  Turns out this is also the reason I was having a lot of trouble finding items in a cluttered drawer.  I have been in vision rehab for about 6 months and have made a lot of progress.  Now I can look at the computer for 2.5 hours per day, but this still isn't enough, I want to stare at it all day!  While I'm waiting on the vision rehab to finish resolving my issues I found a work-around that might help other people too.  I can't look at the screen for more than 2.5 hours, if I use a projector I can look at the projected image much longer!  I told my vision therapist and eye doctor and they said this makes sense, but I never understood the explanation why, I just know that it works!  I hope this helps others, and if anyone else has some vision issue solutions that have worked, please share.
