Thank you for this clear photo.
I can see that her eye is watery and cloudy and the skin is red and irritated.As she has recently recovered from an eye infection it is important we check for an underlying issue such as Dry Eye or an inturned eyelid.A vet visit is important. They will check tear production to ensure it is adequate, stain for any ulcers and assess the eyelids and lashes to ensure they are as they should be.She likely require prescription antibiotics drops and anti inflammatories.At home, use a buster collar to prevent rubbing and bathe the eye with cotton wool and water.
