    Ducks can get foamy eye - it is an early eye infection.

    She needs to be able to dunk her head in fresh water several times a day. Does she have a swim pan or a deep bowl to do that?

    The Vetericyn may be good - but sounds like something's not quite right. If the infection has gone deeper than the surface, it would be best for her to see a good duck vet.

    You can try making a simple mild saline solution and drop that in her eyes a few times a day. There are instructions for making such an eye solution - or you might be able to find something at a drugstore. Just saline, I wouldn't use anything with lots of fancy ingredients.
