One eye not closed, instead it’s white.

Hello! My chameleon is 5 months old, he eats about 5 crickets everyday or every other day. He lives in a open enclosure plenty of dripping water. I dust the crickets with calcium vitamins. When he goes through the day his eyes are both fine, however one day he was cleaning his eye and now whenever he sleeps he keeps that one eye open and his pupil is not seen. (I’ve attached photo). I appreciate any help!

My chameleon is a male he is five months old, I’ve have him for about a month. I handle him at least four times a week. I feed him 5 crickets every day or every other day if the crickets from the last day are still there. I dust the crickets with calcium. My chameleon drinks from a little dripper. I mist the cage twice a day. His cage is a screen cage. He has a 100 W bulb, his lights go on at 7 am and off at 7pm. He has a 80-78 degree rage of his cage. There aren’t any live plants. There’s a vent to the left of his cage. His left eye, when he sleeps, remains open and I tried giving him a bath. He just recently shed but the problem persists.

@Beman figured I'd pull an experienced Vieled keeper in here :)

This is not enough information. Please copy and paste then fill out the form with much more detail. I see no mention of any UVB lighting for instance.
