QnA on Bearded dragon won't open eyes

The bearded dragon will not open its eyes due to dehydration and damage to the cornea. Bright lighting and illness can also be factors in a bearded dragon's inability to open its eyes. A vitamin deficiency may also be a factor. Bearded dragons that cannot open their eyes may need to be hospitalized, but with proper care they can recover.

Dehydration, corneal injury, harsh lighting, sickness, and vitamin shortage are the most frequent reasons a bearded dragon won't open its eyes. Fortunately, with a good food, a well-maintained habitat, and frequent vet visits, these reasons are easily cured and prevented.


    Why is the eye of my bearded dragon closed?

    If your bearded dragon rests a lot, doesn't eat or drink much, and doesn't open its eyes, it might be unwell. This may be brought on by poor living circumstances, such as lighting, warmth, humidity, food, and confinement. Closed eyelids are generally an indication of a severe sickness or one that has been present for a long period.

    What's wrong with the eye of my bearded dragon?

    When a beardie's eyelids droop and he or she resembles a bloodhound, he or she may be suffering from an infection or parasite issue. It's also conceivable that your acquaintance is suffering from renal problems. Eyes that are swollen or puffy are another something to be aware of.

    Is it possible for a bearded dragon to become blind?

    Although bearded dragons may be blind, this is not the reason why one of your reptile's eyes is closed. The lizard may be born blind, although infection or damage to one eye is the most frequent cause of blindness. The vision of the blind bearded dragon may be compromised as well, making it difficult for it to see in front of them.

    Is it necessary to mist the bearded dragon?

    Misting is vital not just during shedding season, but also throughout the winter. Remember that during the coldest months of the year, the air may be exceedingly dry. Make it a point to mist your bearded dragon — and the inside of his habitat — a few times each week when it's chilly outdoors.

    How do you cure a reptile's eye infection?

    Any infection may typically be cured with a topical antibiotic such as ciprofloxacin. In reptiles, uveitis is infrequently found, however it may be linked to systemic viral illness, post-hibernation disease (hyphema and hypopyon), trauma, and neoplasia.

    How can I tell if my bearded dragon is infected with a parasite?

    The following symptoms are common in reptiles with intestinal parasites:
    • Appetite problems.
    • Loss of weight.
    • Regurgitation or vomiting.
    • Stools that look to be abnormal.
    • Diarrhea.
