Blind Crestie?

Hello! I have a 2 year old crested gecko, Moab. He is in a exo-terra terrarium, 12x12x18". He has plants, and coconut fiber bedding, a water dish, food dish, repti-vine, and a exo-terra foam background to fit his enclosure. I love him so much, however he FREAKS out whenever I attempt to even touch him. He jumps to random places, even when theres nothing in front of him. I'll feed him from my finger sometimes, and he'll lick it for a while. But when I remove my finger, he still lick, almost as if he didn't know my finger had been removed. And he also has a problem with jumping to high in his cage, and hitting his head on the screen of his tank, leading to a sore head. I am just wondering if he could possibly be blind? I know its a crazy guess. But I am curious if its just a crestie thing or something. And how can I train him to want to be handled? <3

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
