Birds need vet care the same as cats and dogs do, and they are MUCH harder to keep healthy. IMO you should take your bird to an avian specialist vet. $56 (US or Canadian?) does not actually sound at all out of line for a consult. It takes the same amount of a highly trained specialists time to see a bird as it does to see a cat, dog or horse, it doesn't scale with weight! If you don't you may lose your bird. They are pretty fragile and once it is obvious something is wrong it is often very wrong, and eye problems are generally always considered an emergency. Plus, the longer you wait, the more difficult (and likely more exepnsive) it will be to treat.
