Can someone please help me?! My turtle has had his eyes closed for a couple of weeks now and I think its because of the lighting Im using. My heating light had broke and my boyfriend had thought it was okay to replace it with a 100 watt light bulb. But now my turtle wont open its eyes. and when it does it looks blind . Is there a possibility of that? Please help Im very worried about it!

I would look for another reason for blindness in a turtle. However lets start with the basics. Can you tell us about your setup? Tank size, temp of the water, basking lamp, basking area temp, what kind of filter do you use and how often are you doing water changes. Also how is your turtle acting, alert, lethargic, is he eating, basking, is there any discharge from his nose how about sneezing? I know these questions sound strange but they will help us possibly figure out what is going on.
