well it didn't clear up after a day. I first tried wiping the gunk out again, but then I realized it was actually kind of solid. so I sterilized some tweezers and very carefully removed it. it was way bigger than I thought. absolutely disgusting, but also kind of cool. she was really good, too, I think she knew I was trying to help and didn't even squirm. since it was so huge, it was probably a big relief to have it off her eyeball. anyway, after that I just kept an eye on it (no pun intended) and now she looks fantastic. eyes wide open, not runny, and no more pus. and she wasn't even mad at me, but that big chunk of carrot I gave her afterwards might have helped!
