Take her to the vet asap! Monitor her appetite and beard more and her stool because most growths are tumors and if the growth grows even more, she could go downhill very very fast.

I agree , this is either due to a parasite ( a fly maybe ) or some kind of abscess due to an insect or spider bite , and needs to be dealt with IMMEDIATELY by a REPTILE VET.

Hello,

I'm glad to hear you have a vet's appointment for her.
We had taken a female dragon in several years back who had an eye issue very similar to that.
She got surgery to have it removed. It essentially was a benign growth, luckily. They sent a
tissue sample to the pathology lab, to be sure. Unfortunately, they had to remove some of her
lower eye lid but she didn't lose her eye though.
She still has some issues with it, but thankfully she hasn't had anymore growths develop.
