  • Worried about my leos eye.

    A few days ago I rescued a male and female Tremper albino Leo from a guy who had clearly done no research in care for them cause he had them on sand and was feeding them meal worms only. But anyways just a lil bit ago I picked the female up out of her tank and was examining her and when I got to her eyes I noticed both of em weren't the same. One is the normal silver color with red/pink vains and dark colored pupil and the other one is just like all silver looking with no pupil. Is this normal or does she have some kind of eye problem or blindness?? Thanks in advance for feedback.

        I just got her out and examined her again and in better light and its alot worser than I thought and there is some kind of definite health issue. That eye looks all dry and infected is easiest way to put it.I'm about to post pics of it in my album.

          I think the coloration looks normal, but with the quality of the picture I can't be sure that it's an infection. If it appears to get worse in the next day or so, go to the vet asap.
          Hope everything else goes well with her. Good luck

              And there's no Reptile vets around here :/ only choice is to wait till next weekend and take her to the Reptile show and have one of the breeders check her out.

                I see what you mean about the pupil, or at least I think I do. It doesn't look there is one from the picture you posted. Since you have some time before you can get a second opinion on it, is it possible to borrow a friends camera, or take some time to get your phone camera to focus in better lighting?

                Have you tried looking at the Herp Vet Connection? There's only 4 vets for Alabama Hopefully someone from the show can help you if not.

                    Try to not get a glare on her eye. That would help.

                        It sort of looks cloudy like an eye infection. Elise: I see what you mean by it looks like there isn't any pupil. When the eye gets infected it gets cloudy and you often can barely see a pupil when it's like this.
                        I've been struggling to get rid of an infection in one of my leo's eyes. He's been on antibiotics for months now and every time it looks like it's clearing up and is taken of the antibiotics the eye gets cloudy again. This may be something that you need to take him to any vet you can find. An avian vet may be able to help too. Call and ask around.

                            Another thing do you think the eye drops they make for turtles would help her any?

                              I would definitely quarantine her, at least until you find out what the problem is. If anything I would use saline solution to help the eye stay moist. That's what I've been using.
