Something wrong with eye?

Postby reptilemaster » Sun Aug 12, 2018 10:11 am

So today Blaze right eye is all puffy and kinda sunken in!
She was crawling through the garden yesterday, could she have gotten something irritating in it?
It's odd, looks like the inside of her eyelid is swollen. I can try to get a photo if that would help?

Hi there, yes post a few pics of it. Try to flush it gently with plain saline. If it looks bad still after a few days you can use raw honey as an antibiotic ointment. Dilute it with 3 parts warm water + apply directly to the eye with a Q-tip or eyedropper. Make sure you have no loose insects hiding in the tank, esp. crickets.

Unfortunately my camera is not working right :( I'm fixing it though, going to get photos later.
Anyway the puffiness seems to have gone down somewhat and she does not appear to be in distress about it.

Might have just been a mild, temporary irritation. It will probably be fine. :)

There is some odd looking redness on her lower eyelid, but thats on the other eye too, so I don't know if thats just her color! You can see that her eye is kinda sunken in. I Hope it just goes away!

Probably just some debris irritating it. It looks OK to me in those photos so hopefully it's all cleared out now.

Yeah, it seems much better today!
I guess I overreacted a bit because I really do love my little critter!

Aside from looking perfectly fine, she is stunningly beautiful and should grace the cover of beautiful beardie magazine . :)
