 Baby RES not eating

I have a hatchling that was given to my husband about a month ago by a coworker. He found it in a garbage truck and knew we have a turtle tank so he asked if we could take him in. I’ve tried feeding him and at first the only thing he would eat were live brine shrimp I think because he was attracted to the movement. Now he doesn’t eat anything and always has his eyes closed and is not active at all. I thought maybe his eyes were inflammed or infected so I just bought some drops and started treating him and our other turtle. Any suggestions as to what else it could be. I don’t know if he just can’t see so he can’t find the food or if he’s just not interested in eating which would mean something’s wrong.
