    This is my first year breeding my leopard geckos.
    View attachment 33337 This little guy is from the first clutch. The eggs were laid on May 1st and hatched on June 15th. I noticed his eye on June 19th, as I was out of the country when they hatched. However, my father was taking care of them for me and he did not notice his eye sooner. I'm pretty sure this is a result of his first shed getting stuck, but I do not know what to do for him. I habe been soaking his eye with a wet paper towel and a wet q-tip trying to loosen the skin, but it has not worked. If anybody has any idea what I should be doing or what it could be please let me know. I don't want the little guy to suffer.

    -I am taking him to a herp vet as soon as I am able to get an appointment. He is very healthy other than his eye.

    Thank you to anyone who can help.

    Wish I could say more, but I would be doing exactly what you're already doing.
    Good luck.
