Eye Problems

Postby ProCreationReptiles » Fri Mar 09, 2012 7:11 pm

I was feeding Roxy tonight and I put him back in his enclosure. He sneezed a little to get the chicken that he scarphed down out of his nose and when he sneezed, I noticed that his eyes kind of, I guess blew a bubble?

I don't think he is acting differently, normal breathing, no wheezing, and as always, wanting to move, always curious, wanting to get into something.

I will be keeping a close eye on him this weekend since I am home from work but I am wondering if anyone else has seen this? There is no irregular discharge from his eyes, there are as they normally are....

Any suggestions or opinions/advice is greatly appreciated.....

Thanks All

probably nothing to worry about,could be any number of reasons,eg substrate in eye or rubbing it on something,if hes behaving normally it should be fine,just keep a close eye on it just incase i guess

I have seen hat from time to time. It has never been any kind of issue. I assume it is the same as when you sneeze and your eyes water. I wouldn't worry about it as long as there is no discharge over the weekend.
