 I need help, my Anole is having eye problems

So my green anole’s eye started discharging and this eye booger like substance is on the corner of his eye. The temp in his tank is 75-80 degrees and humidity levels are at 60 percent. He eats mainly crickets dusted, I need help with this so any advice would be good. Quick question, are turtle eye drops good for anoles? Get back to me as soon as you can.

Alright I’ll see if I can schedule a vet meeting. How do I get rid of the gunk in his eyes or will that go away once the parasite is gone. I will try the baby food

He’s not acting slow, he’s actually pretty active he’s always up to his antics. I’ll try misting and seeing what happens

It’s hard to tell if it’s crust or slime. Removing the gunk that’s gonna be difficult since he doesn’t know the meaning of "stay still"

Not cold water try your best not to stress him out too much because stress will do all sorts of things to them

Is he receiving vitamins with his food? He may be suffering from vitamin A deficiency-- look up the symptoms online and see if anything else matches what your baby is going through. Another possibility is that your UVB light is too close and causing retinal burns. Look into that as well. Up until now, what have you been feeding her?

Repti calcium carbonate with D3 that’s what I use I have a 3 ounce bottle that has lasted almost a whole year it’s very cheap and a necessity along with the Basking spot and temperature the reason why they need calcium is because they don’t have the natural sunlight help them with appetite and strong bones

They can overdose on vitamin D3-- if you’re giving them calcium with D3 and they have a UVB light, they can get sick because their body isn’t using the D3 fast enough. The D3 is to help their body metabolize the calcium when there is no UVB. Also, you need to dust your own crickets to make sure they’re getting proper nutrients. I don’t trust anyone else to do that for my anoles. You should get a calcium powder that has vitamin A listed in the ingredients.

Check the label for vitamin A, but I’m sure it’s in there. Avoid citrus (orange, Pineapple, lemon) flavors because they don’t like the acidity. You can also try feeding them mashed up carrot, I had an anole that loved it for some strange reason.

I’m actually a paramedic and my job has nothing to do with herpetology! But I’ve had a lot of experience with anoles over the past twenty years, and the internet has allowed me to do a lot of research on them. My girlfriend loves them too, which makes keeping them much easier to do!
