    Default Eye ulcer with increased cloudiness


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    So I have a generally healthy 6yr male leopard gecko. I took Iím Saturday to our exotics vet for a cloudy eye with an ulcer. The proscribed antibiotic eye drops. He has been licking his eye and tubing at it especially when I put the drop in 2-3 times daily. Is eye looks so much worse to night and I will take him tomorrow morning for and ER visit. But in the mean time I want to know some case experiences and such. I attached photos from Saturday and tonight.

    Best chance is a stronger eye antibiotic - ulcers can get deeper and cause the eye to actually rupture. Its good that he's going back to the vet. He might need a sedated eye exam to make sure that there isn't something stuck in the eye itself- hopefully your vet will know what to do

    I have been to them many times and my clinic I work at refers out to them often. Their a specialty clinic, medvet. I have no medical experience with exotics just cats and dogs. I’m a newbie vet assistant. I’m hoping something simple but expect the worst being an eye issue. Thank you.
