Eye is bulging out

Postby phobosdthorga » Sat Nov 18, 2017 6:58 pm

Hello all! So my Beardie just had his eye closed and it was massively bulging out, several times its usual size. As he re-opened his eye, the eye regained its usual size but did appear quite red and bloodshot for a few seconds.

Iggy appears to be completely normal once again but seeing this to have happened really shocked me. What could possibly be going on here?

Could be possible shed, i had my juvenile beardie Neptune do it once and it freaked me out so much I yelled at my mom to call the vet. She hasnt done it since then except occasionally when theres shed around her eyes.

Oh goodness, I completely forgot about this and that it had ever happened! XD Thank you so much though! You completely allayed my fears, especially at the time this had occurred :)

Such a weird, bizarre behavior though. It reminds me of that lady who was going around on all the talk shows (years and years ago) who could make her eyes bulge out upon request. Ah, here we go! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wy0drkTYB74

First time I saw Cooper do that I was terrified. Cancelled plans for the rest of the day and just sat next to his tank to make sure he was OK. It is such an odd behavior, but fortunately quite normal =)
