The left eye has inflamed and edematous conjunctiva adjacent to the lesion. There is yellow material, presumably an abscess, behind the cornea in the lower, medial quadrant of the eye.
Corneal lesions detected and no
Foreign objects observed in conjunctiva. The lesion has been present for a week.

Any suggestions for treatment/management would be appreciated.
Also, I have an image to post, but the directions for uploading an image were not clear when I click on "add image."

If you have access to an avian vet, I would take this bird there post haste, particularly with an abscess behind the cornea as you describe. You can apply an opthalmic antibiotic ointment, but it may not reach the abscess, so a systemic antibiotic such as baytril may also be needed.

Make sure this is not a sinus infection... is this the result of an injury?

An abscess would be significantly concerning.

Sounds like it could be what many call sinusitis, possibly mycoplasma.
Baytril or Tylan would be 2 choices you could use for the such or Denagard.

To post a picture here it needs a web address, you can upload a photo at photo bucket, etc. and get one that way.
Then come here and in the body of your message put the address of the photo between these " img" tags:
[img]your photo address[/img]
