    If it is just one eye and the turkey has no other symptoms, you could put neosporin in and around the eye a couple of times a day. Use the stuff without the pain relief ingredient. It worked for my rooster's swollen eye.

    If there are other symptoms like lethargy, do a search on respiratory illness.

    Hope it gets better.
