    I think there's an ointment you can put in their eyes, but I don't know what it's called.

    Did you rule out any stuff caught in their eyes, like wood shavings? I had a chick who's eye kept sealing shut with gunk, I did a saline eye wash on the eye and she had several chunks of wood shavings in her eye. Once I got them irrigated out, her eye cleared up good as new.
