Hello. It sounds like she probably has a corneal ulcer or scratch to the eye. These are quite painful and can easily get infected. I would not wait to get this treated. With eyes, the sooner the better to start treatment. I would go in today to get it stained. That will confirm the presence of an ulcer. After that, they'll likely start some antibiotic drops to get it cleared up. I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
