If it's only one eye then it's most likely because of an injury. As long as she is eating and the water is clean then she will heal sooner or later.
If she is not getting better in a few weeks let us know and we can try to treat her.
Good luck!

something similar happens to my dogface once and a while I think he scraps it or bumps into a rock . When it happens I soak his pellets in garlic guard and it normally goes away in a few days .

Still eating a lots, I always use garlic on frozen food, pellets have garlic and also seaweed, keep you posted, hopefully heal fast,

I had a similar experience with a naso tang. In my case it turned out to be flukes. Not sure if that is the case with yours. Just one more option you can look into. Hope I'm wrong

Flukes in eyes usually happen on both eyes, not only one. Also usually flukes cause the eyes to be cloudy, not swollen.

Both of the eyes on the naso had flukes, actually the fish had flukes all over. Only realized it once I started treatment of prazipro. I initially thought it scuffed its eye, because it was swollen and cloudy. A day into the treatment you could see flukes coming off everywhere. The tang's other eye never swelled or went cloudy.

The eye is almost back to normal , cloudiness is gone the eye is just a bit puffy, probably a couple of days and everything should be fine

Hey Mark, got me a bit worried at the beginning, but the fish never lost appetite or anything different, I feed a lot garlic all the time, probably just scraped the eye to a rock or something....
