In brief: Yes

While this might be just a "fainting spell" she should see her pediatrician and an ophthtlomolgist.
While uncommon at this age, these could be signs of a condition called pseudotumor cerebri which is an increased pressure in the brain. If left untreated it could reslt in permanent vision loss.
