Help i need advice for my cockatiel

I have a question this is my first time here so please forgive me if i mess up. my cockatiel fritoz woke up today with his right eye closed. i notice this when i went to uncover the cage, last night before going to bed he was fine. ive searched online and many people have different response. he doesnt have any discharge or stuff coming out, he just has it closed and its a little swollen. Could this be a scratched cornea? Could one of the other cockatiels have hurt him? what have i done: ive tried bathing him with aloe and purified water, cleaning the eye with purified water, someone told me to buy eye solution to help the eye....he ate so im feeling a little better, but he just sat on his perch sleeping please guys any advice i will take this is my baby were talking about i can not lose him now i know theres something wrong cause usually he is loud and whistling all day and bobbing his head its hurts me to see him like this and if i could trade places i would we go way back please please help any advice is appreciated

When a bird is observably in distress then they need to be seen by an avian vet. Please take her to the vet Ella for a checkup.
