    Could be eye worms...can you get good clear close up pics of it?
    Could be something stuck in her eye ball....vet visit a possibility?

    Will ask this be moved to disease forum, might get more answers there.

    Gotta figure out what it is first.
    It may not be a DIY thing, might need to find a vet.
