Blind three day old goat?

Ok. I have a doeling that appears blind. I noticed at first yesterday something was wrong she had her head down shaking and back hunched. I figured at first it was the doe she is a first time mom and it was not the easiest birth. Brought her in and have been bottle feeding she did get first milk from mom and I gave col. also. She is doing better but seems blind in both eyes. The are clear and show no puss redness etc. My vets out if the country till the first and no other vets treat goats. can anyone offer help?

    Why do you say she's blind? Shaking her head and hunching would have nothing to do with lack of vision

    hunching up is a good sign that they were not getting fed - and good thing that you are bottle feeding
