A missing eye on a horse, given it's training isn't affected/hindered, should not change it's price, imo.
But, if you remove her eye, and she no longer can be driven/ridden/perform as well, obviously her value is going to decrease. Recently I knew a bombproof horse that had it's eye removed, and nothing changed about the horse, except for having one less eye. But, I'm sure there are horses out there that are negatively affected in some way after their eye is removed, maybe increased spookiness, maybe resultant herd boundness, I don't know. I wouldn't want to be in a buggy of a spooky horse, and I certainly don't want to deal with a herdbound horse again.
