Hi I'm a new beardie owner. Ive had Clyde for about 3 months now. He is shedding right now so i gave him a bath to help with the shedding process. Upon this i noticed what I think is droopy eyes but im not sure if it is droopy eyes since im still quite new to being a beardie mom. He's acting his usual self; eating, sleeping, basking etc but i just wanted confirmation if this is droopy eyes and should take him to the vet or its just how beardie dragons usually look. Anything would help. Im just worried

Can you take a side pic of his eye? What substrate do you have him on?

Is it a coil or tube ??????????????? Look on the bulb if its a tube--- UVB's can cause eye issues but we need to know what kind it is--- and where in the tank is it??? On the screen or inside the tank? Please dont listen to the pet store people they do not know what they are talking most of the time -- I see a red hue-- is there a colored bulb ???

Its a bulb and it's on top of the screen. The red hue is his night light. Thank you I will keep that in mind next time I go

Please get rid of the red bulb--- it causes eye damage-- can lead to long term --- what kind of bulb for UVB ? A coil or tube? If your using a coil UVB that will also cause eye damage as well --- you need to replace it w/ a Reptisun tube 10.0--- T 5 or a T 8
