    Exclamation Eye crests stuck to eyeball

    Hello there! my crested gecko has some of her front eye crests down stuck to her eye. I saw a post about this awhile back but I cant find it. Should I be worried? They have only been like that for maybe one day. please let me know! thanks

    Default relate?

    Ya, I'm having issues with eye crests too...my guy has one sticking back against the head, not the eyeball, but I can't see any stuck shed either. My guy hasn't shed in a few weeks, and it happened recently. He's real sick now though, so I'm just being pessimistic and thinking he's getting worse

    When I try moving them with a qtip, it stays up for a few minutes, but then droops back down...if you do find anything out, lemme know...I have a vet appointment on Monday though, so if no one comes up with anything by then, I'll ask my vet about both of these cases and post the results

    no problem, I'm just hoping my little guy will make it to monday...he's just looking so horrible right now... My theory is that, in my case at least, it's the dehydration I think he has thats making his crests droop and the eye crest fall back, but again that's just my case and if your girl was dehydrated I'm sure you'd have mentioned it by now.

    But yes, vet on monday, will keep you posted.
