    It looks like it could be pus covering the eye, which may be from a peck wound or injury with infection, or from a respiratory disease. A closer picture may help. Infection in the eye can cause blindness if not treated, whatever the cause. I would rinse the eye with saline, and apply either Terramycin eye ointment, plain triple antibiotic ointment, or Vetericyn eye gel twice a day inside the eye. I would also use a QTip to try and remove the pus. Respiratory diseases such as MG or coryza may cause swelling and pus in the eye.
