Possible Cataract?

Yesterday I noticed a small cloud over my bearded dragon's pupil. The other eye is perfectly clear. He is acting fine and eating like usual (collards with a vegetable along with vacuum sealed dubias and a couple superworms with calcium and vitamin supplements). He has reptisun t8 tube lights mounted inside of his tank. He is pooping like normal and it doesn't seem to bother him. Is it possible he scratched his eye? Is there anything I can do to fix it? I plan to call my vet as well, but I would like some more input. Thank you!

Please post a pic of the eye -- and yes he could of scratched it but we need to see it first -- what substrate are you using in the tank ? And are there any colored bulbs your using?

No colored bulbs and I’ve just been using shelf liner. I can post a picture when I get home but for now I’ll find one on google that looks like it

it looks just like this. This is not my photo. There’s no discharge or puffiness. Everything else is normal.

I can't tell , without knowing there was a suspected cataract I only see a bit of glare/ reflection. The owner seeing it from all angles must see it better and if they suspect a cataract just watch it. I don't know that there's any treatment so hopefully the other eye is O.K. and the beardie should be fine.

Hello,

That is hard to tell but some have had trouble with eye issues such as a cataract though. Have you
tried using sterile saline solution or diluted raw honey in the eye?
I hope the other eye is good. Does it seem to bother her at all?
