It looks like he has several layers of retained shed around this area. It is an unusual place for shed to become retained. It looks quite crusty and abnormal. The area infront of the eye looks like it is actually a little swollen, which is likely the reason the shed is becoming retained here.
I would recommend bathing him twice daily in luke warm water in a shallow bath, with reptoboost solution added (an electrolyte). This will help to keep him hydrated. Gently washing the area around his eye with some luke warm water and using a cotton bud to gently wipe this area may help to remove some of the scales.
However, if the swelling is still present, then I would recommend having him seen by a vet ASAP. It is possible he could have a small abscess in this area. This is common in reptiles and often they do not show many symptoms other than a little swelling. In this case he would. need antibiotics & anti inflammatories. In reptiles often abscesses need surgically opened up. Please do not hesitate to come back to us if you have further questions.
