Can anyone help me?

I have a guinea pig called mimi shes coming up to being 3 years old. About a week ago i noticed her eye looked sore. It looked cloudy and grey towards the top of her eye with some sort of sticky stuff on her eye. She seemed fine in herself and was eating normaly and looked in no discomfort so i left her be. Yesturday evening i was holding her and part of her eye towards the top had turned pink/redish and looked raised but still she did'nt seem in any pain. Anyhow i took her to the vets this morning to have a genaral check and to ask about the eye. He said she is very healthy and seems laid back. When he examined her eye he said he thinks it looks like she has scratched it or caught it on something and thats why its raised and a funny colour.He has prescribed her Fucithalmic eye drops as a antibiotic and told me to give her them twice a day to clear the area and keep away infection. Would like some further advice because I'm not sure if this is the problem.

Whilst I can't really help with Mimi's eye in particular, Willow was prescribed these drops/ointment last year when she had a scratched eye.

You couldn't actually see any damage to Willow's eye, but she was blinking and squinting alot and this is how we knew something wasn't right. The ointment cleared it up in days though.

Hope Mimi's eye feels better soon
