Eye Shed too early, should I be concerned?

Hello!

I have had my bearded dragon girl ROY for about 3 years and her shed has always gone smoothly. This time around however, with her whole face flaky at once, it seems she may have gotten too ambitious with her scratching as one of the fallen eye sheds was still soft when I picked it up off the floor of her enclosure.

None of her behavior has changed and the eye looks okay, but the new skin around the eye is much lighter in color than normal. Should I be concerned or is there anything I should do for that eye?

This is the eye she's having some trouble with. Across the top of the eyelid where there is still some soft skin is the area that pulled off.

It looks normal, but i bet it's bugging the heck put of her. If you hold your finger kind of close i bet she will use it for a scratching post lol 😁. If you try it use the back of your finger not the tip.

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
