She is having infection of glands of eyelid.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome to Health care Magic

I am Dr. Dadapeer K an ophthalmologist and I will be answering your question.

I reviewed your history and the photos of the affected eye posted along with the question.
The photo shows infection of glands of eyelids in the form of stye or hordeolum. This requires treatment by the use of antibiotic eye drops like moxifloxacin eye drops. The use of hot compression and pain killers will provide symptomatic relief.
This will resolve over 3-5 days. This will not affect the lens inserted inside the eye.

Hope this answers your question.
Do write back to me for further questions.
Thank you
