Eye infection

Can someone please tell me, is this what an eye infection looks like on a bearded dragon??? When I saw this I took him straight to the bath tub hoping it was maybe some shedding he needed help with. He made attempts to open his eye several time but would always immediately close it right back. An eye infection was my immediate thought. It reminds me of having "pink eye." Thoughts??? Thank you very much in advance for your knowledge reaponses.

Hello,

Sorry your dragon is having some eye problems.
Can you review your tank setup with us, such as the type/brand of UVB lighting, temperatures,
supplementation, etc along with pictures of the tank setup too.
Are you using a loose substrate or a solid substrate?
Have you tried using a sterile saline solution daily, to see if that helps to clear it up?

Hey so his warm side is about 115 and his cool side is maybe about 85 or so, i haven't measured the cool side temp. He has the brown clothe type substrate, I forgot what it's called. i guess it could be the little pieces of loose shaving that fall out of the worm containers. He eats lots of fruits and veggies, too many too name. He's a geeat eater. Also h3 eats crickets and worms. I haven't tried any saline yet because I came home to it late last night. I'm going to see what eyedrop options they have at the pet store today.
