UVB light linear tube or compact coil, strength, age of bulb, and brand or Mercury Vapor Bulb?
State to locate a Herp Vet?
Your Dragon is showing signs of a Respiratory infection which can be affect the eye. This will need a Herp Vet visit asap. I do want to let you know some corrections to diet need to be made we do not recommend meal worms or super worms because of the high chitin and fat content. The Horn worms, crickets, duba roaches, silk worms and phoenix worms are the acceptable feeders. You also may want to switch the all living things bulbs. We have report of them exploding and shattering in tanks. last spinach, kale and carrots are only ocassional veggies. This is a nutrition sheet:
For the eye right now you can use plain saline eye drops a couple of times a day. I would also like you to make sure the temps are 105-110 in basking area, 90's in ambient temps and 80's pn the cool side. The proper temps will help with the immune system.
