I am a recent owner to my male bearded dragon I got him on the 3rd and so far he has been good. Today I walked to see him and he was in his basking spot and his eyes seemed to be swollen and stuck out double more than usual and on his left side there was a white red tissue sticking out intermittently as if going with his heart beat I called for my sister to see it and he immediately stopped it. The swelling went down and he’s completely normal now I’ve been trying to see if he would do it again and tape it. But he otherwise seems completely healthy is eating all of his food and he recently partly shed. Can someone pls help me I really hope he is ok!

Hello,

What you just described sounds like to me that he was what is called "eye bulging" that they
do prior to shedding their head/face & eyes. You didn't get a picture of that did you? LOL
If you can post some pictures of his eye (s), we can take a look at your dragon.
Which UVB light are you using currently?

He has a zoo terrarium hood with an Arcadia D3 UVB/UVA tube, it lays across his whole tank. And in his basking spot he has a zoo med basking bulb. In his basking spot the temp is around 95-100 Fahrenheit and hot side is 90 Fahrenheit and his cool side is around 80 degrees Fahrenheit. And in the morning before I turn on his lights he is usually 70-69 degrees. He gets taken out everyday for sunlight and interaction. I’ve also been giving him regular baths and misting him twice a day and keeping his humidify at 40 so he can shed properly.
