EYE BULDGE???

Postby Emsteremme » Tue Mar 02, 2021 2:38 pm

so, my beardie is a year old (bday was yesterday tbh) and he was basking today and I look over and his eye is buldging! He stopped a second later, and online it says this is normal but I wanna make sure. It wasn't that much but it did look a little crusty by the lid? Idk it was closed and I could be overreacting cause tbh, it wasn't really. This normal??

Hello,

Eye bulging is very normal, during shedding but not anytime else, no. If the eyes are
bulging all of the time, for no apparent reason then there is some health issue that is
developing most likely. Usually heart or renal issues are the culprit, or an infected sinus
area can also cause eye issues.
Is his appetite normal?

I catch mine doing it every couple of weeks or so, they may do it more often and I just don't see it, it's definitely more often than when they're shedding. Afterwards they do their beard stretching so I just always assumed it was part of their morning routine.

Hello,

Ok, that sounds completely normal then, did you determine if his head/eye area is shedding
at all right now?
