We have had some eye problems occasionally. The worst was when a cocklebur was lodged underneath my mare's eyelid. Ouch! She did not enjoy that visit to the vet. You could try holding a warm water compress on it for a few minutes tonight, and then calling the vet in the morning if it looks any worse.

I have found the Vetercyn Opto. Gel to work well on her, seems to clear things up.

Good luck!
