Question:
Can vision change after being in a coma? 

Answer:
The physical act of being in a coma could possibly alter a person's distance and/or near vision (usually for a short term), but I would be more likely to think that the condition that caused the coma would be a more likely cause of vision change if it is prolonged. I suggest you see your ophthalmologist (Eye M.D.) to discuss this situation.
