Can you post a clear photo of what you're seeing?When was her dental cleaning?
The eye looks irritated but does not appear to be in a condition that would necessitate an ER visit this evening.It's fairly common with pets who have recently undergone a sedated medical procedure for them to have some eye irritation. If this persists into tomorrow, I would ask your vet to recheck the eye to ensure that there is not a minor ulcer developing from an area of dryness that may have occurred while she was asleep for her procedure. Sometimes eye ointment is needed to calm the irritation. In the meanwhile, you can use a cool compress on the eye to help alleviate some of the discomfort. If needed, she can be placed into an e-collar until your vet can examine the eye for foreign material/ulcerations. Here are instructions, if needed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nFWPH17u0eU
