I noticed last night and thought maybe it was her just waking up and it would go back in. But its been like that all day. I dont know what to do in the mean time until I can take her to the vet.

Eyes are sensitive
I would wait and see what the vet says
You could check for dehydration on her back (pull the skin on her back gently up if it stays she is dehydrated)
It could be a scratch on the eye?
In the pic it doesn't look pink or inflated (some times a picture doesn't show well)
Does she seem to be rubbing it?

Make a list of anything that she's doing out of the ordinary to take with you to the vet
Sneezing, Eye rubbing, not opening it the whole way,
Anything you can think of would be surprised what could be important during diagnosis

Ok thank you and no she has been acting fine very hyper and hard to handle (like normal). But I will definitely be keeping a close eye on her until I can get her to the vet. Should I keep her with her cage mate? Or separate?

Good luck at the vets tomorrow
Let us know what they say
They may want to do a stain on the eye to check for a scratch on the eye
Take your phone with you to check that whatever medicine (if any) are ok
Exp: Baytrill can be unsafe for rabbits to take (kill gut Flora)
I have no idea what can be harmful to gliders concerning medications

I think it should be ok
They do grooming each other and will obsess over a wound on on their bodies but I think if they were going to groom her She would probably close her eye
maybe sleep in the room with the cage that way if there's any fighting you'll hear it
