I came across some info that said a fish with a swollen eye is usually suffering from a bacterial infection. They will be best treated the penicillin, erythomycin or amoxicillin. Thought about ur fish when i read it and passing it on

The Balas eye is getting better? If so I'd be hesitant to treat but I'd wait for someone else to confirm.
Also what test are you using? It sounds a little like test strips and if thats the case you'll need to get something else. Those can be highly innaccurate and ammonia needs to be tested. Get a liquid test kit for more accurate results.
