My turtle has closed eyes. He sometimes swims with closed eyes. Looks like a filmy eyelid or something. Is this an eye infection??? Does having an eye infection make a turtle stop eating? He doesn\'t eat anymore and sleeps all the time. Any info will be greatly appreciated.

i\'m facing this problem with my turtle..it\'s a difficiency in a certain vitamin i think D..anyways if u live in a sunny area just try to keep ur turtles in the sun as long as possible..this did some improvements with mine..if not then the prob. is with the UVB light
i don\'t know if we have to worry that much cz it seems eye infections are very common among turtles

Dixee, eye infections become common when a turtle isn\'t properly taken care of.
