I would get to a vet if possible.

 

Looks like an infection.

 

Brewer's yeast is for nerve development that prevents leg problems and seizures.

 

This looks like the eyes got irritated and infected.

 

If it's early enough, an ophthalmic medicine may fix it.  Vetericyn makes an eye gel.  Even starting a mild saline rinse three times a day - starting right now - can help.  If the infection has gotten below the surface, then oral antibiotics may be needed.

 

I am not a vet - that's why I suggest that if it is possible, you get some help with this.

 

Ducklings can make it through such problems, but this needs attention.

 

Good for you for seeking help!
