    PS:
    Since Snowy's eyeball may be involved, I wouldn't chance waiting. Please try your options soon! Your alternative is visiting a specialized exotics vet.

    Eye infection with possible blindness could be a scenario IF you wait.

    I 100% recommend the humidity box into the trying to slowly get it off.
    One of my rescues came with so much stuck shed in their eyes, they developed an eye infection.

    Good News! The stuck shed came off!

    I tried the humidity box, but Snowy seemed to be very nervous inside of it and was breathing heavily even though we had a lot of holes on the top. Snowy is very sweet and I didn't want to do anything to scare her.

    I also noticed that Snowy looked a little pale, so I figured she would be shedding soon. I rubbed some of the Zoo Med Repti Shedding Aid on the area while holding her. I was very careful to avoid the eye.

    When I woke up this morning, I saw some skin, so I knew she had shed. Snowy is awake now and she looks very vibrant -- and she doesn't have any stuck shed on her!

    The stuck shed may have come off with this shed anyway, but I think the shedding aid is a good thing to have.

    Thank you for your advice.

    You're welcome.

    for all you & Snowy have done for the stuck shed!

    IF Snowy takes a multivitamin like Zoo Med's Reptivite multivitamins, she will be getting retinol weekly. Retinol may prevent stuck shed from happening in the future.
