Foam in an eye can be a sign of mycoplasma gallisepticum (MG) which is a chronic respiratory disease. Do you have a picture of her eyes? Is there any sneezing, nasal drainage, or congestion? Are either of her eyelids swollen? Is there any dust or mold or other environmental reasons for irritation of her eyes? Terramycin eye ointment from a feed store can be used after cleaning the eyes twice a day. If you see any respiratory symptoms, Tylan (tylosin) can be given to treat MG. Here is a link for Tylan:

Can you post some photos?
I agree, watery foamy eyes sounds like respiratory illness like Mycoplasma. Does she have any other symptoms?

You may be able to find Tylan50 at your local TSC, but my understanding is that it's hard to find right now. You may be able to find Tylosin powder online to use for treatment as well.

I would flush the eyes with saline a couple of times a day, if there is any pus remove that too.
