  • Humidity - I don't have a tool to measure humidity but i can tell that my room is more humid that the rest of the house because it is warmer and I have fish tanks in the same room.
  • Plants - I have one live plant it is the Dwarf umbrella tree, the rest are fake plants.
  • Placement - The cage is in my room. there is one ceiling fan at the center of the room always on the lowest setting, not in a heavy traffic area. The cage sits on the floor

Little bugger looks like he had something stuck in there, maybe stuck shed in the eye turret.

I would try the shower method first. Take a small plant and place it in the shower with him on it, point the shower at the wall (not directly at him). Let the warm mist bounce off the wall onto the plant and him. Not too hot or cold. Hopefully this helps him clean his eyes out. Continue doing this for a few days.

Also pickup a hygrometer so you can monitor your humidity properly, it may not necessarily be what you think it is due to the heat lamp drying things up.

Sorry I also forgot to mention

Are you alternating the d3 and multivitamins on weekends? D3 and vit should only be twice a month.

I have a veiled similar age and I let him eat as much as he wants right now. I’d throw an extra misting in there as well.

How long did you leave him in there for, did you shut the door to bathroom to allow it to get very humid?

it is also worth mentioning that your UVB is insufficient. You want a linear style hood. I have a veiled very close in age and switched out to an arcadia t5 6% and plan to switch that to a 12% when hes a bit older.
