A. This is definitely not normal. It would be important to get that eye examined by an ophthalmologist to check for increased eye pressure and lens position and internal bleeding and also any changes on the surface such as poor tear production which can cause drying and inflammation. Many eye conditions are treatable if diagnosed in time but can lead to loss of the eye and enucleation if the damage has progressed too far so I would get her exmined as soon as possible
