Questions & Answers

Hi I have a Leopard Gecko who’s eyes are not opening. I’ve been putting saline in and around the eyes for about a week. What can I do to get them open?

Common causes for eye problems in geckos include bacterial infections (many times bacteria from the mouth travel up the tear duct into the eyes), shedding problems, and foreign bodies.  Each of these problems would be treated quite differently.  The first step in helping your pet is a thorough physical exam by a veterinarian with experience treating reptiles.  Examination of the eyes may require sedation.
