I\'ve had my red-eared slider for five months now (kept him/her alive, yay!) but in the last few days I\'ve notice that his/her right eye is kept closed and seems swollen and irritated. When the turtle opens that eye, his inner lid is starting to cover his pupil, and seems red in the corner. I tried rinsing off his eye and flushing the eye with normal human eye drops, and this seems to make him feel better, but only temporarily. I really love this little guy (he\'s 1 1/2 inch diameter), and want to help him. Please respond or email me at [email protected] if you have advice or can recommend some medicine that I can get from a vet.
