Beardy has left eye closed! Help!!

Postby gabiaspro » Fri Sep 13, 2019 10:07 am

My bearded dragon is 12 weeks old and his left eye is closed he is still acting as he normally does and eats as he normally does but his eye is closed. I have been terrible and forgot to put vitamins and calcium in his crickets the past few days and I've been reading the lights i have can cause eye problems but i can't buy new ones until Monday. I have not seen any discharge from his eye but the bag underneath it looks blueish. Can anyone recommend something i should do? Or what new lighting stuff i should buy? I'm really worried I'm a new reptile mom and I just really want my dragon to be happy and healthy.

Hi there, it doesn't sound serious because he's still eating which is a great sign but of course you want to fix this little problem. What exact type of bulbs do you have ? Can you post some pics of your baby's face [ eye ] as well as the tank + lights you use ? Do you have a loose substrate ? Here's how to post pics : Then use the XIMG to upload them
