To me it looks like shed -- but I could be wrong-- you might try using a soft tooth brush and get her to close her eye and use that gently to see if it will come off -- I would maybe get it wet w/ some water water
Others on here might be able to see what it is better than I but thats what it looks like to me

Yeah I'd agree with KarrieRee about it being shed. I've noticed that shed around the eyes, nose, and ears can be a bit stubborn sometimes. Give Ginger a nice soak and get that area wet every so often over the next few days. I don't recommend pulling at it or anything because you can potentially damage the scales underneath, not to mention hurt her in a sensitive area. If it's not resolved in a few days then maybe gently rubbing it with a wet Q-tip or soft toothbrush will help loosen it up a bit.

Hello,

It is a bit hard to tell on the picture but it does look like some dried shed. Have you tried giving
a nice bath & using a wet swab to try & see if you can gently rub that off?
If it appears to be irritated you can get some sterile saline solution to put in her eye, daily to see
if that helps also.
Does it seem to be bothering her?
