Did he have the eye problem when you first got him? You need to go to the vet ASAP. Whatever it is (be it shed, and eye infection, or whatever else) a vet is needed. It's only going to get worse. And it looks pretty serious already. Your cham is already irritated by whatever it is. I can guarantee that everyone else here will agree with me that you need a vet appointment.

I gtg but I can come back online later to help you out with your form if no one else jumps in.
