is the eye just showing no clarity, or is it swollen. Typically eye issues start with humidity and the lack thereof. Eye issues can also possese a vitamin A definciency, Usually the vitamine A deficiency it will be very swollen, and show more of a serious eye problem. What are you humidity levels, as well as your substrate, could just have some irritant in it, in which you can flush with sterile saline and increase humidity to obsolve this issue.
