Just to add besides the eye issue. Super worms are little fat bombs. I wouldn't feed them regularly every other day. And chameleons love variety in feeders, there are lots more to choose than just worms or crickets. And I would suggest to bring a fecal of your chameleon to your vet periodically, although he has no intestinal problems yet (-> prevention).

If the eye issue doesn't improve with higher humidity, I would take him to the vet. Could imagine he has some foreign material under the eye lid, too or even another problem. Does he keep it shut all day long or only opened for a short time?
