Eye problems

We are first time chicken parents. One chick has swollen eye (bought today) that can't even tell if there is opening/slit. Help with treatment suggestions please...

    Hi and welcome to the forum and congrats on getting your first hens
     if its just an eye complaint you can use golden eye ointment to treat it but if shes showing other symptoms such as a runny nose , sneezing , laboured breathing , off her food etc then she may have a respiratory disease which will need antibiotics
     keep us up dated
