I think it was aggression from one of the other females.

I would remove this female (if you haven't already) and put her in an AQ salt bath or add AQ in to a QT tank. you only need to leave this in for two days or so if you choose to add it to the tank. A bath might be better in this situation. Then wait two days after your fish is out of the AQ salt and put her in some Epsom salt at a dosage of 1 teaspoon per gallon for a few days to help with the swelling of the eye.

Yes, either she was attacked by one or more of the others. OR she got caught up in a decoration or on the filter somehow.
Poor girl, that really looks sore.
You only noticed today correct? You didn't notice anything "off" with her yesterday?
