    Hello!
    I'm new here - just joined to ask a few questions. My leopard gecko is about 8 years old and while he's been fat and healthy for years, he's now not really eating anything, and he also has a swollen eye. His eye seems to be filled with a clear fluid and is bulging. He hasn't really wanted to eat for about a month now. I didn't really worry the first couple weeks because he goes through these periods where he doesn't really want to eat every so often. It has also been brighter and cooler in the house lately, so he's been in his warm hide a lot. I think he may have a blockage from ingesting moss from his moist hide. He has reptile carpet so there's no other substrate he could eat. I don't really know the signs of infections/parasites, and he may have something like that. He did sneeze occasionally for a while, but he hasn't done it lately so I don't think it could be a respiratory issue.
    If you have any tips on what it could be or how to help him, I'd really appreciate it!

    *Update - his eye is better tonight but I tried feeding him again and he still refuses. He acts very interested in the mealworm but he won't actually eat anything.
