I have a baby eastern hermanns tortoise and one eye is open and one is closed. I do not know if he poked it in his mulch or if something is wrong....I have a picture of it when it is opened. It is like only half of the eye is showing. His other eye is perfectly fine.

It looks like maybe the 3rd eyelid is irritated and covering the front portion of the eye.

You could get some sterile saline eye drops. You'd find them in the contact lens area of the pharmacy. Just put a couple drops in 3 or 4 times a day.

Or you could go to a well stocked pet store or feed and tack store and get a bottle of this.

Or the eye wash. Either one will help reduce inflammation.
