in the other forum, I posted a picture of her lights and set up you c an see the color there, I dont think its colored but? Also I can't figure out where to upload pictures, this is confusing. I have a bunch of photos to show and imgur doesnt allow me to upload more than one apparently.


Bugger imgur, upload the images one at a time to POSTIMAGE , save the file created in notepad , and then drop the codes in you post , select and click Img tab
code will look like

here, it kind of shows the process of how I caught it. It's usually back to normal fast
also during means when it first began

It looks white you want a white no off colored or yellowish ---- is the bulb a coil basking bulb or a solid bulb ?

All in order and in the process of it, during means when it began, sorry. It wasn't as intense as it usually gets but thats how it it's been. Doesn't ever last long. She'll scratch it and then it'll go away, sometimes won't scratch and it just goes away too, always a minute or less.

That is weird -- its like shes having a allergic reaction -- and its only under her lights when this happens? If so its got to be the lighting --- have you tried swapping out the basking light for a different brand?

Well, keep in mind I used a coiled uvb for most of her life until two months ago. It could be eye damage from that time?

That is quite possible- and if so its even more convincing for me that they are bad - I have never been a fan of the coiled bulbs in the first place just because of all the things I have seen on this board a lone from them :(

It's why I think it's eye damage from all that time, but who am I to say it is? The vet's I've talked to all say that since we did bloodwork and they examined her, talked it all out with other vet's and specialists that they contacted, that if it was a heart or renal, or an aneurism it should've showed up on the blood tests or we would have seen other things. Just weird, I don't know what it could be, like today she hasn't had her eyes swell up once and shes chilling on her hammock right now.
