    I'd pick her up wrap her in a towel and rinse her eye out real good with the Veterycin or a saline rinse you can make your self using 1/8th tea salt to 1 cup of warm water gently pour over her eye to wash it out. Then gently check out her eye to make sure the eye ball is okay. She could have gotten poked in the eye by something or may have something in it.
