Trying to look through my dog's new eyes on the world.

My dog had a stroke. Her head is now tilted to one side and one of her eyes is sort of bulgy. I'm trying to understand what the world is like for her now. How does the world look after a stroke to the stroke victim?

She is only 5 years old and she recently had IMHA. After thousands of dollars of treatment, she has survived. It's been four weeks now. However the stickiness of her blood led to a blood clot in her brain which caused her to collapse to one side. Now her head is at a permanent tilt and she seems to favour one side when viewing something closely. She has lost her crazy Vizsla spark but she is otherwise mostly normal. Very lucky to be alive. I would just like to know how her world appears to her now. Why does she look at things with a tilted head and a favoring of one eye? Also is there anything that can be done to correct this? Thanks.
