 AFT with excess skin on eyes and constant shedding

I’m looking for some insight as to why my roommates Albino Fat Tailed Gecko(Lizzy) is constantly shedding. My guess is the lack of humidity within the tank.

Also,the poor lizards eyes have been swollen shut and there’s excess skin always left covering the lid after a shed. I’m sure there is more than one factor to the eyes being constantly swollen,but it seems due to an infection.

If any body has some advice ,please get back with me

If the poor thing is still alive, please get it into the vet to have it’s eyes treated. Make sure the temp and humidity are right and hopefully it’ll do better

the more they eat, the more they shed. Thats how they grow... Keep humidity up around 80% during sheds, 70% the rest of the time...
