The eye itself looks ok just the lid where it got burnt looks red only small but very plain pointed

OK

Most likely this is a first degree burn and nothing too serious

Ice and cold for fifteen minutes every half hour will help

I'd also suggest a moisturizer like Eucerin or Aloe Vera lotion three times a day

If the redness continues beyond to more days she should have a doctor check it out

Please let me know if you need any more information
