In brief: Thrush
This specific term refers to yeast infection of the lining of the oral cavity.
It is very rare for one to get candidal infection in the eye, although not impossible. If it is conjunctivitis, there are opthalmic solutions. If this is a systemic manifestation of yeast in the blood stream you need to see a doctor asap, which might not be a bad idea in any event.

In brief: Are You Sure?
Pain, red, swollen eyelids, change in vision.
Thrush of the eye (fungus/yeast infection) could be very serious if scarring occurs. Don't fool around- go see an ophthamologist.
