    i do think you need to take him to the vet
    earlier in Mader it also says: "The spectacle is a physical barrier and as such it is also impervious to most topical medicaments, making treatment of the underlying cornea or globe difficult if not impossible without s subspectale injection or application."

    Re: Eyes don't seem right.

    Will do, I'm going to try and find one asap. There's none in Perth so I'm going to get a list of numbers and try them all tomorrow. Hoping to get him in on Tuesday. ... Damn concinnus ... nothing but bother ...

    Re: Eyes don't seem right.

    remember to bring notes
    my current neighbourhood vet doesn't have a huge amount of experience with herps
    she's good though and happy to learn when she hasn't treated something before
    so she appreciates my getting info from other sources (Sean, Mader, the doc in Pennsylvania)

    Re: Eyes don't seem right.

    Yup ... about 30mins drive away ... I also spoke to another vet today who said it's a similar process used with birds - a small inscision and a dropper rinse with povodine iodine as a cureall and then sterile conditions for a week to allow healing. Possible to DIY with confidence ... but I'll be going to the vet!!!

    Sounds like a good plan of attack. Keep us informed.

    You really have not had luck with the concinnus
    Hope he gets all better again! Fingers crossed.

    Re: Eyes don't seem right.

    That herp vet is great!!! Really friendly and knowledgeable (no notes required for this guy). He gave Xerxes a thorough check - No indication of septicemia (which is indicated by small red dots - ie mini haemorrages in mouth or skin) says that the damage that he caused to his 'good' eye was the probable cause. Xerxes is starting a new shed cycle of his own accord to probably solve the problem himself. Been given a gentle liquid antibiotic to help him along (along with syringe and appropriate tubing) and should be right as rain before long. Romain said he's seen this problem at more advanced stages and even then opening the eye and flushing it is still the last resort.

    So ... onward with the recovery
