 Gecko’s Eyes watery glaze

It’s as if he is crying... about once or twice a day my AFT has a big tear (water drop) over his open eye. Is this normal?

does it happen when he’s eating? if so then its like what crocdiles do because of a reflex thing in their throats. I don’t think that is what it is so don’t take my advice lol

no, that’s not normal at all.

i would think that there’s something stuck in his eye so it’s creating more tears to push it out.

most likely a piece of substrate..i would suggest taking him to a vet and they can put a neon-yellow fluid in his eye and use a blacklight to see if there’s any scratches or anything stuck in there. :)

alright thanks. do you think that this could also be the reason why he isn’t eating? All he’s doing is hissing at the crickets

yeah..animals that are in pain or discomfort don’t eat.
i would imagine that his eye probably hurts, so he’s gonna be grumpy and not want things bothering him, understandably.
