Do you have any pictures? She might need to go to a vet. Sometimes when animals damage their eyes, the tissue looks kind of cloudy.

In a world older than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear.They are not brethen, they are not underlings; they are other nations caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth."

Yes, she most likely has an eye infection. I wouldn't use over-the-counter eyedrops for any animal. Best to take her to a vet promptly. If it's just an infection, she'll be given antibiotics. Not too expensive, if it's caught early.

Check your husbandry as well--make sure the temperatures are correct, and that her insects are gut-loaded well, and dusted with calcium. Use a multivitamin powder once a week, instead--it should have some preformed vitamin A.
