Hello :frow and Welcome To BYC! Sorry about your chick, you'll want to post in the Emergencies forum about it https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures If it is an older chick that can't open its eyes or has something wrong/injured, give as much information as you can, was the chick OK yesterday, are the others OK etc, pictures might help people figure out what is going on.
If it is a just hatched chick, it happens sometimes that they have small or missing eyes, could be just chance, genetic, or something with the diet or environment, there is a list of causes on this website ie http://beautyofbirds.com/chickdeformiities.html There is usually nothing you can do to fix the eyes, some of the chicks can live if you give them special care, here is a thread where people talk about keeping blind birds etc https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/520492/newly-hatched-chick-no-eyes-update-1-31-12-she-layed/220
