Hi, this is going to hit a little close to home and im very very causious about it. My first beardie I ever got I named Ollie. I got him from Petco and only had his 31 days before he died on halloween last year. I was new to this kinda thing, never had a reptile before but Ollie had MAJOR eye droops and I thought it was normal yk? I would ask my mom about it and she didnt notuce anything. I just think he was really sick because he was drinking tons of water so I think it was a disease or parasites based on my knowledge now since he wasnt dehydrated. When he died it felt like Id had him for yearsss I cried and cried and so Mollie is named after Ollie.
Well anyways to sum this up, eye drooping was a big thing with Ollie and ive had Mollie for around 6 months (I got her nov 3rd) and Im extra careful when it comes to her and thats why i post on here a lot because I just want to be safe you know. ANYWAYSSSS
This isnt as major as Ollies was but is this the start of eye drooping or am i overthinking this?
Thank you!

It would be easier to tell if you see her eyes closed. If it looks like one of these photos when her eyes are closed she has droopy eyes.

no her eyes dont buldge like that, they do when she sheds and sometimes randomly to stretch them or get the shed off same as she does with her chin, when her eyes are closed there 100% normal. The 3rd picture you attached were exactly how Ollies were.

Please get your cool side up to low 80's during the day - the 74 is more for night time temp--- change the temp and then see what she does -- if no change please post back on here

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
