Ringo’s Eyes

Postby RingoTheDragon » Mon Oct 19, 2020 11:49 am

Hi there, long time reader, first time poster so sorry if there’s something wrong with the post!

I’ve been looking after my sister’s beardie and he has this thing with his eyes. Long story short, he’s been to the vet and they told her to get Repti Turtle Eye Drops and they still haven’t done anything(5+ months later)

Is this something someone has come across?

Pictures attached bellow if I’ve done it correctly.

Turtle drops won't do anything unless there's a Vitamin A Deficiency. I was looking up the product on Chewy. Do you have another vet that you can go see? That doesn't look normal.

You need to have a bright white basking bulb that keeps temps for an adult dragon 95-110 and the UVB needs to be directly above him not beside him --- this could be the issue --- please get put above him in a fixture w/ a reflector -- just from the picture I am seeing the light is shining right in his eyes --- please tell me what bulb your using ? T 5 or a T 8

Ok so I would still get your UVB above him in a fixture w/ a reflector if there isnt any -- distance should be 6-8 inches directly above basking decor and if the bulb is 6 months or older it needs to be replaced - basking temp is ok they should range from 95-110 F - is he pooping ok ? And cool side of tank is 75 F during the day I am guessing? I would try and get it up to around 80 F-- 75 F at nite is good for a temp - what kind of substrate are you using? No loose - it can irritate eyes if it gets into them
