I really do not think that the ginger is the cause of his visual problems. It is imperative to exclude a pathological condition, like for instance glycoma that can be controlled with medication. He should consult an opthalmologist as soon as possible. I am not convinced that taking ginger orally can cause his visual problems but if you are concerned, he should consult a doctor and refrain from adding ginger to his diet.
