Thank for asking to HCM
I can under stand your problem there, it could be conjunctivitis, only thing important is, to differentiate the causative factors, like virus, allergens, bacteria, and for that she need to be examined by ophthalmologist, on tentative base you can try some antiallergic and anti inflammatory eye preparation in form of drop (Nephazoline+pheniramine,,Flubiprofen) "DO NOT USE STEROID" unless advise by ophthalmologist, the chances of bacterial infection is more likely looking to her medical history, take good care of your mother Have nice day bye.

HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Diabetes can be associated with complications in the eye. If she has kidney complications requiring dialysis then it is possible there are complications elsewhere such as the eye.
She may want to consult an opthalmologist for assessment.

Weakness and vomiting can be related to the kidney disease. These symptoms can also occur if there is any infections or if the blood sugar levels are high.
She would need to see her doctor who would take a through history, conduct a physical examination and possibly suggest blood tests .

I hope this helps
