    I certainly understand the compact bulbs do not generate the same power of uvb as the longer tube fixtures. I looked into it, and at 12” away the 10.0 only puts off 0.5 uvb. However at 4” away it puts off the recommended 3.0. That’s roughly how far away her vine is from that bulb I would say...

    Well good news everyone...I took her into the vet today, and as I guessed, she did not have an eye infection. The vet suspected that when she went through her last shed, her eye did not shed completely, and the skin became stuck around the eye, making it very dry and crusty. He prescribed her...

    I will keep that in mind about the warm water...I made sure it was very tepid. And to clarify, I didn’t put any water in her eye. The Vetericyn had gelled over her eye and coated it, and the water droplets helped loosen the gel so it could be wiped away and she could see again. Thank you though.

    I have definitely come across that as well: people saying the compact bulbs were hurting their chameleons eyes. I will have to look into that and see if that is still a thing. And the plastic fixture at the top is the lamp hood. One side has the uvb bulb and the other side her basking bulb.

    It looks like it is a compact bulb. She doesn’t spend too much time under it though compared to her basking light. And I know! We were amazed too! But that thing was hot as hell and immediately started burning the hood. Maybe it was because it was a red light? I’m not sure...and yes she does...

    Hopefully the vet tomorrow will have more info getting to take a look in person...honestly I’ve exhausted myself on google searches and you’re right...it could be any of those really... My endless googling hasn’t really provided much clarity, other than what you just mentioned. I almost wonder...

    Well slightly good news everyone...I’ve at least got her sight back for today. There is somewhat of a pro and con with the Vetericyn...the pro is that it does seem to be soothing as she itches her eye less on branches when I apply it. The con however is that she’s so small that the Vetericyn gel...

    She has a zoo med light hood that holds a zoo med ReptiSun 10.0 uvb bulb. Her basking bulb is a simple GE house bulb: 60w. They sent us home with a 75w bulb for her heat lamp and it immediately started melting the side of the light hood. It was also red and I understand Chams don’t like red...

    Serious Eye Condition

    Hi everyone. I’m very concerned about my baby veiled Chameleon’s eye. I’ve only had her for a few weeks and she was perfectly healthy when I got her. She is in an all mesh enclosure with plenty of space and a lot of foliage to climb around on (real and fake plants) (the real plants are ok for...
