Has the Gecko recently shed?

Type of substrate used?

Do you use any supplements?

my gecko has recently shed
I use coco fibre brick and regularly ensure the humidity is correct
I use calci-dust and nutrobal

From what I can see it looks like retained shed in the eye. This is a common problem we see in some gecko breeds. Unfortunately you cannot resolve this issue at home. It will take a Reptile specialist to remove the piece of shed. If I am correct and it is left in place, it will accumulate with each shed and eventually leave the eye blind.

I would be happy to locate a Herp Vet for you with a State or Country. Please reply for Herp Vets or discussion.
