The picture is not clear enough to see if the area is swollen, it might be that she got an irritant in the eye and has been rubbing it, take a look at this video, at about 33:00 into it the vet is talking about eye care, if it is swollen then you need to have her seen by a vet

The purpose of this forum is to promote the BEST PRACTICES in the care of budgies for their optimal Health and Well-Being
Locating an Avian Veterinarian

Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma.
This is important as "regular" vets will often overlook symptoms that are quickly obvious to an Avian Vet.
When you rely on anyone who has not had training in Avian diagnosis and care, you may be delaying effective treatment.
This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recovery than it would have if you seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.
If there are no Avian Vets near you, please find an Exotic Pet Veterinarian with experience in dealing with small birds.

What is your budgie's name?
How large is the cage? Length/Width/Height

I recommend you remove the dowel perches in the cage and replace them with natural wooden perches of varying diameters to help prevent pressure sores.
