CHAMELEON BULGING EYE OUT

Hi, I’ve had my chameleon Hugo for around 2-3 months now. He’s a veiled male, and if you need any more info i can fill out the husbandry form. He’s bulging one eye out, and this is the second time this week. It’s also kinda near a stick and maybe he’s rubbing it on there?? I don’t know.
 
okay so he stopped doing it. i’ll fill the husbandry form out below :)

I have heard of chams bulging eyes out and rubbing to get rid of shed, if he’s about to shed then that could explain it.

Feeding - about 5-8 medium crickets daily, gutloaded mainly with apples. Hornworms are the main worm i use as treats. Gutload is not adequate. Switch to a commercial gut load like repashy bug burger. Follow the directions for mixing it and use that instead.
Supplements - zoomed i think is the brand- supplements without d3 daily and with d3 every other or every third day. You are supplementing with D3 way too frequently. Do you have a multivitamin? Please post pics of your supplements so I can give you exact feedback for what you have.
