She probably injured her eyes while rubbing. The concerning thing is that she is rubbing. It usually indicates some kind of parasitic infection.
How long have you had her and did you qt her? Any other symptoms such as fast gilling, hovering in 1 spot, lethargy, etc?
Also do you have a qt tank? I would get one ready promply and prepare to begin parasitic treatment. DO NOT treat the main tank whatever you do.
Do you see any white spots? If there are and they are of uniform size, It would be ich, but from what you explain, I believe she may have marine velvet. How is your water quality? Please give us a rundown so we can eliminate water quality issues.
Also can you post a picture of her?

I don't think its ick, I've had her 1 1/2 years thats why she special one of my first, my po4 1.5, its high but every thing else is good no2 0 no3 2.5, her fins are shredded and looks like bloody streaks on the faded spots, the thing sticking out of her eye is gone, it disappeared in a matter of minutes. I got an anemone last week that died, could it be related, I don't think the lighting was enough to support him so he died. I have a 10g with figure 8 and leopard puffers the salt is low in their tank but I can bump it up a bit for the angel if she won't infect them.

Maybe its a bacterial infection. If it were me, I would try would you stated above. I understand how you feel, our angel is our "family dog".
I would move her and start treatment. IMO
Good luck!! My thoughts are with you!!
Have you added any new fish lately?

Well don't put anything in the tanks ECSPECIALY not copper. Try to set up a Quarentine tanks ASAP, and im sure someone can give you an idea as to what meds you'll need. Best of luck I hope she makes it

If I were in your shoes. I would gently move her to a qt tank. start with the antibiotic (maracyn) and slowly add the copper. Try Cupramine and be sure to get the test kit. Cupramine is tolerated well by most fish, just follow the instructions.
If she is well enough to take this, it should give you a broad coverage of diseases.
Good luck!!

Thank you so much, I'm going to pick up a small tank today, add the water from her tank and keep my fingers crossed.
Thanks again
