    so recently I’ve been extremely busy with work and I haven’t had time to fully care for my gecko , daily water changes and spot picking her tank but I never got to observe her.

    and I recently did a few days ago and I noticed her eyes are completely shut, and she cannot see a single thing , and she still drinks but hasn’t eaten , and her tail has shrunk tremendously and she has lost a lot of weight, I think it was from a previous failure shedding, I have spray to help with shedding so I gave her some , no luck,however I have just taken her out and had to preform some sort of operation on her , I got small cotton pads and gently dabbed her eyes with some warm water mixed with a small dose of TCP, eventually whatever was in her eyes came out after some gentle pulling with tweezers , it was some sort of thick wax which had encoated her entire eyes , she had the same problem on both eyes, and I removed two rather large balls of wax , and she still had a small layer on her eyes but i couldn’t risk removing it in case harming her eyes , and I’m still not sure if it’s fully gone ,any advice?

    As you can see in the photos , what she should look like compared to the photos when the problem occurred

    she is also about 9 years old so old age might play apart haha

    hey, looks like the forum has gotten super quiet. I hope you took her to a vet and that she is better now.
