Maybe you could try eye drops - neosporin or something similar. Personally i would consider antibiotics as being off her food could be something more serious than an eye problem (or i suppose its highly possible that she simply can't see to eat). Even if you choose not to give her antibiotics, you could give her vitamin supplements / electrolytes in her water - this will boost her immune system as well as replace nutrients that she is losing by not eating.
I think it would be good to post in fullest detail at "emergencies, diseases, injuries, cures," thread. I think her eye issue is connected to whatever is causing her to have no appetite etc. The pharmacist could help you find an otc eye drop that would hopefully make her eyes more comfortable.
you may be able to temp her appetite by offering things different from her feed, mashed hard boiled egg, warm oatmeal,. plain yogurt, watermelon, etc.
