    It would be helpful to take a picture of each eye because we really can't see much from the picture you posted.

    Looks to me that his pupil isn't dilating when introduced to light. Unfortunately I have no answers for this maybe @Aimless Will chime in and give some ideas.

    I am not meaning this in a mean or harsh way, but I feel that the gecko himself does not look good.. He almost seems to look dehydrated. How often are you spraying tanks, and what is his humidities regularly at? What tempatures do you keep him at? How do you measure both humidity and tempature? What food are you giving him, and what calcium supplements are you giving him? Has he had illness in the past? How long has his eye been like this? Is there anything sharp and pointy that could have poked him in his enclosure, and can we see a picture of it? If he has had a shed recently, is it stuck shed to the eye?

    Stop giving him bugs, if he's not used to a regular a crested gecko meal powder than he will develop a calcium deficiency or health risk very fast. Are you giving him a meal replacement powder or just bugs?

    you can feed bugs exclusively if (and only if) you properly dust and gutload the bugs. nutrition is important for your gecko; can you share more detail about how you prepare his food?

    I would also like to see a full body shot, from above and from the side.

    I have seen uneven eye and/or pupil size occasionally in the past. I'm not sure if there is always a common cause, but I suspect not.

    in my personal experience, I have only seen it with a gecko that came to me as a young adult with MBD. it wasn't severe enough for soft bones or an underbite, but he had a twisted spine and the uneven eyes, and unfortunately only lived about 4 years after I rescued him. in that case, both eyes responded to light via pupil dilation, but the smaller eye responded more slowly. I'm not sure if that helps in this case.

    sometimes geckos can have infections or tumors behind the eye that can change the appearance. I don't think this is the case with your guy as his eye socket doesn't look swollen or deformed, but it may be possible.

    I wish I had more help to give. it's not a bad idea to take him to a vet for a checkup and a more informed opinion, as he's a new acquisition that has had poor care.
