Any idea what is wrong with this deer's eyes?

Not sure but I got one on my place just like her. The eyes look like they will glow. Mine has been around for about 6-7 yrs.

Looks to me like you are just seeing the light source reflected in the pupil. It is more pronounced in the front deer but you can see the highlight in the smaller deer's pupil as well. Both are in approximately the same part of the eye, so it it likely just the refection of the sun (or other light source.)

In portrait photography the photographer often places the lights above and slightly to the side of the model to make the highlights in their eyes to have a pleasant appearance. With the two deer it looks like the light source is high (middle of the day) and to the side toward their body. If one knew exactly how this camera faced, it would be possible to tell approximately what time of day it is.

My wife killed a buck I hunted for a full year just like that. I have him on my wall as we speak. He had goat like eyes. I'll post pics. Only one the my taxidermy guy had seen. Also have a trail cam pic of a doe the same year that was never killed on the same land

He turned out to be so rare I paid to have him shoulder mounted. It was my wife's first buck too!! They had to order goat eyes to match the real eyes for the mount.

Their eyes look like normal deer eyes. You just don't typically see the eye structure due to distance, lighting, and other factors, plus I doubt many folks pay much attention to their eyes until something really noticeable sticks out, like in the photos in this thread. Deer, sheep, goat, and other ungulates all have similarly shaped pupils and eye structure. Here is a photo of glass deer eyes from a taxidermy supply catalog:
