Hi, I'm Dr. Jeremy.I like to try to help you with your bird. Are you able to handle the bird? If so try a bright flash light and see if the pules of his eyes constrict. Birds can control this so it's no 100%, but if the pules constrict then nerve function is present. No try to touch his eye's with a clean finger, you don't have to touch them but you want to get really close. He should blink, if not your bird may be having vision issues. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Jeremy DVM
